Earlier this week, controversial NFL wide receiver Antonio Brown seemed to suggest that he was dealing with CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy), a degenerative neurological condition commonly found in athletes involved in contact sports, caused by repetitive head trauma.
However, Brown has now clarified his statement about CTE.
In a tweet on September 6, Brown explained that “CTE” stands for “Catch The Energy,” although its exact meaning remains unclear. He followed up with a video in which he appeared to be partying with members of the Theta Chi chapter at Florida State, where they rapped along to one of his songs titled “CTE.”
Many comments on the post expressed confusion about what “Catch the Energy” signifies, with some speculating that Brown might be promoting something.
Others raised concerns that Brown’s behavior could be related to the actual CTE condition. In essence, this seems to be typical of Antonio Brown’s unpredictable actions, and it remains uncertain whether this holds any significance.
However, not all recent headlines related to Antonio Brown have been as harmless as “Catch the Energy.”
Earlier this year, Brown became involved with the Albany Empire, the defending champions of the Arena Football League. Within a short time, Brown reportedly caused financial turmoil for the team, leading to the dissolution of the franchise.
Recent reports shed light on a darker aspect of this story.
Wide receiver Darius Prince revealed that players confronted Brown after he ordered the removal of a tribute to a former player from social media.
The confrontation escalated, with Brown allegedly instructing his assistant to retrieve a firearm from his car. Prince stated, “After he said that, things did calm down, and we had a conversation. But the fact is that he threatened us by telling his assistant to grab his AR.”
What a character.
