Oakland Raiders Release Antonio Brown - Sports Agent Eric Metz Thinks CTE At Play - Video

Oakland Raiders Release Antonio Brown - Sports Agent Eric Metz Thinks CTE At Play Antonio Brown, the Oakland Raiders Wide Receiver who doesn't want to be now, after $215,000 in fines and what he perceives as a team that does not want him, just may have a problem that points to CTE. That's the view of famed sports agent Eric Metz, who's handled some of the biggest names in NFL history. CTE is Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, and is described as " is a neurodegenerative disease caused by repeated head injuries. Symptoms may include behavioral problems, mood problems, and problems with thinking. Symptoms typically do not begin until years after the injuries. CTE often gets worse over time and can result in dementia." Reached at his home in Arizona, Metz said that he "feels for Antonio Brown, (Oakland Raiders General Manager) Mike Mayock, and Jon Gruden. I've known Jon since he was a GA at Pitt". Metz believes that the problem with the former Steeler extends beyond contracts and points to "something mental" - I've seen this too many times before, Pal." Emory University in Atlanta co-authored a new report with sports safety researcher Kathleen Bachynski from NYU Langone Health. Released last year, the study explained that ten percent, or one of every ten, NFL Players are candidates for CTE. https://ift.tt/2ZUknlk While the studies have looked at retired NFL Players, the data about active NFL Players is not known. That's why Eric Metz thinks the Antonio Brown Oakland Raiders situation has a silver lining. "He could be doing us all a big favor," said the agent who's had Tyron Smith and Jamarcus Russell as clients. "Let's hope he gets the help he needs." Stay tuned.
