O-Lineman for the Patriots Talks About His Raiders Near-Death Experience

To put it bluntly, Trent Brown’s one season with the Las Vegas Raiders did not go well.

Not only did he appear to regress as a player, but he also had a near-death experience that forced him to consider retirement due to the lengthy recovery.

Brown told reporters on Tuesday, November 16, that he “almost died” after an “IV mishap,” according to Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic, who tweeted a portion of the story.

Last year, Patriots offensive tackle Trent Brown said he nearly died after an IV mishap caused air to enter his bloodstream before the Raiders’ game against the Browns.

He claimed that it took him nearly eight months to feel normal again, and that he considered retiring.

To make matters worse, according to NFLcom’s Ian Rapoport, Brown’s IV issue occurred shortly after he had recovered from COVID-19.

When you consider what happened during Brown’s brief and unfortunately eventful time with the Raiders, it’s easy to see why he was eager to return to the New England Patriots, where he helped them win a Super Bowl.

Trent Brown’s health is currently unknown.

Brown’s season in 2021 got off to a shaky start.

In the Patriots’ Week 1 loss to the Miami Dolphins, he injured his calf.

Brown didn’t play again until Week 10, against the Cleveland Browns.

Brown was injured in the first half against Cleveland, but it didn’t keep him off the field the entire game.

He rejoined the Patriots offensive line, where he helped to anchor a group that included Isaiah Wynn, David Andres, Ted Karras, and Shaq Mason.

On Thursday night, when the Patriots travel to Atlanta to face the Falcons on Thursday Night Football, it appears that he will be ready to play.

Against the Atlanta Falcons, can the Patriots keep rolling?

The Patriots are the only team in the NFL with a longer winning streak…
