The NFL is no stranger to the bizarre, but Antonio Brown’s latest claims about former teammate James Harrison have pushed the envelope. In an Instagram Live video, Brown alleged that Harrison gave him a big hit with an illegal helmet, and ever since then, he’s been “super aggressive.” Brown then went on to suggest that Harrison’s helmet was illegal for over 20 years in the NFL, and that it caused his CTE.
The claim that Harrison wore an illegal helmet for over 20 years in the NFL is a wild one, especially since Harrison only played for 16 seasons. It’s impossible to know if Brown is joking or not, and it’s likely that he doesn’t even know himself. However, the fact remains that Brown’s allegations are serious and could have far-reaching implications.
The NFL has taken steps to address the issue of head injuries and helmet safety in recent years, and it’s important that they take Brown’s claims seriously. If Harrison was indeed wearing an illegal helmet, then it could have serious implications for the safety of players in the league. It’s also important to note that CTE is a serious and debilitating condition, and it can have a devastating impact on a player’s life.
The NFL must investigate Brown’s claims and take appropriate action if necessary. It’s also important for players to be aware of the risks associated with head injuries and to take the necessary precautions to protect themselves. No matter the outcome of Brown’s allegations, it’s clear that the NFL needs to take head injuries and helmet safety seriously.
