    I wonder if the team did anything to quietly take care of issues while he was here.

    If not, then I think that CTE might be part of it. Or at least there seems to be something that's left him pretty unhinged.

    I read where it turned into some kind of police stand off when they came to arrest him. Can't find the link now.

    This sure is a long way to go to prove the Burfict hit was a cheap-shot...

    CTE isn't triggered by one hit. Dorin Dickerson on the Fan Morning Show said he's known AB for a long time and he's always been like this, he just behaved until he got the bag. Ryan Clark apparently said things similar a few years ago.

    I am glad that he is known as former Bucs receiver vrs former Steeler receiver.

    He took more than one hit.

    I don't think what Clark said was about this legal stuff that he keeps getting himself into. Things have clearly been getting worse at an accelerated pace for ab.

    Yes, I heard this yesterday on the AM show. It is difficult to get mental health help for an individual who resists it. He's been given many chances and seems to have a penchant for his destructive behavior.

    Everyone wants to link it to the Burfict hit, though.

    Because of the timeline. And I think every NFL player who's brain they've looked at has CTE. So they're likely all above the threshold for hits. So maybe one big event could be a big deal for any of them. I think we know so little about the brain that it's hard to be sure about anything.

    So I agree you're right that doesn't mean that it's the reason (which I also said in the post you replied to).

    It could be something different. Where basically getting kicked off the Steelers, Raiders, and Pats in a very short period of time damaged his mental health. Or even earlier than that when he wasn't voted MVP and / or when Ben said he should have thrown it to Juju every play. A guy like AB probably made it by ruthlessly squashing any doubts about himself. Because that's what every pro athlete has to do.

    So someone who finds insane success that way probably isn't going to turn around and say "now I'm looking for help to fix this thing that everyone else says is wrong about me".

    Shawn probably has better insight into stuff like this. Doesn't he work with addicts or something? I'd imagine that would make him very familiar with mental health issues.
