    He literally has damage to his prefrontal cortex due to the multiple concussions he's had. It's effecting his decision making skills, impulsivity, and judgement.

    It's effecting more than just him. The NFL leads all pro sports leagues in arrests for violent crimes. Correlation doesn't prove causation, but there's a lot there to question.

    Yes, CTE is a huge issue.

    However, I'd argue he's also a total dink anyway.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Disagree. He truly wasn't bad up until the last couple of years. The dancing after touchdowns was a little bit annoying, but as far as legitimate antics go he never did anything like this. Up until his last couple of concessions.

    I definitely agree though it's likely a combination of CTE, as well as his inflated ego, and potentially diagnosis worthy narcissism.

    There's a very real possibility that Burfict knocked some of his own personality into Brown.

    God, I wish Burfict and Suh would just get kicked out of the league already.

    I remember when I was seeing the rumor mill on Dallas potentially snagging Suh, and I was so glad they didn't.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    Speaking about not making things up. I saw on Twitter via Adam Schefter Josh Gordon is being restated by the NFL! For the NFL to do that they must of saw some real change in the guy and I mean major.

    Maybe they finally realized that smoking pot isn’t a bad thing that should be demonized by the league and the media. If that’s the case, it’s a step in the right direction.

    Antonio Brown was not at The Oakland Raiders' training camp Sunday because he's still upset with the helmet issue, according to GM Mike Mayock.
    What a pain in the balls this guy is being right now.

    And the Raiders have had enough as the GM is saying it's time for him to be " All in" or he'll be all out.

    Antonio to AEW?

    I mean, what did the Raiders expect? They hired the biggest diva in the NFL.

    Re: 2019 NFL Offseason Discussion Thread

    So AB went on Twitter, asking if anyone has the helmet he wants, saying he will pay you for it. I have about three of the same exact helmet he has described, I'm thinking about lending him one

    This trade was bound to be a train wreck from the moment it happened, as landing in Oakland was only fitting for Brown.

    If nothing else, this will all lead to a pretty exciting episode of Hard Knocks on Tuesday.

    He apparently sent "new" helmets to the organization in Ottawa to test and clear them for use, but the organization said that the helmets he sent weren't any safer or even different than his original one and denied their use.

    This is probably the funniest story of the preseason.

    Terrible footwork, and looking horrible. I know it's just pre-season, but....Maybe, just maybe it's not a great idea for them to have thrown the bank at a guy who had such a small sample size.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    If I remember correctly he's looked terrible in the pre-season before and does a lot better when it comes to regular game play.

    Not that bad, or that awful of footwork. But yeah.

    Like I said, pre-season, so who knows. But it's always concerning when someone comes back from an ACL injury and has terrible footwork.

    And I still think his sample size was way too small for his paycheck.
    Everything will surely be alright.

    There are guys that have never played a game in the NFL who have gotten huge pay days. It's a chance teams are willing to make.

    Some of those pay days top picks got before they restructured it were insane.
