LOOKS LIKE A BIG PART OF THE LEGION OF BOOM IS SUFFERING FROM CTE

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is the term used to describe brain degeneration likely caused by repeated head traumas. CTE is a diagnosis made only at autopsy by studying sections of the brain. CTE is a rare disorder that is not yet well understood. However, an increasing number of former players are reporting symptoms of CTE. In fact, according to a 2017 study on the brains of deceased gridiron football players, 99% of tested brains of NFL players, 88% of Canadian Football League (CFL) players, 64% of semi-professional players, 91% of college football players, and 21% of high school football players had various stages of CTE. To be totally honest, this study had several limitations, including possible selection bias as families of players with symptoms of CTE are far more likely to donate brains to research than those without signs of the disease. Despite the limitations, the study still showed that CTE is far more common than once believed.

Let's check in on the Legion of Boom...

Earl Thomas threatened to poison his wife and kids and is currently on the run from Texas police.

Brandon Browner is currently serving 8 years for attempted murder.

Richard Sherman was arrested for DUI and threatening his wife and family. (Video Below)


While we can't know for certain if all those issues are due to CTE, there's a pretty big chance that brain injuries have had an impact...
