Antonio Brown's attempt at shaming JuJu Smith-Schuster backfires

Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster

Antonio Brown is at again today.

The 30-year-old's relationship with the Steelers only worsened from that point on, and Brown proceeded to ask for a trade.

Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster used to be one of the best wide receiver duos in the NFL.

The tweet from Brown was citing Smith-Schuster's crucial Week 16 fumble against New Orleans in the final minute that allowed the Saints to hang on for a 31-28 win and dealt a huge blow to the Steelers' playoff hopes. He also replied to a handful of other posts, coming to the defense of Smith-Schuster.

Brown hasn't been shy about calling out the Steelers since being traded to Oakland last month. All parties involved bickering on the internet.




That apparently was too much for Smith-Schuster, who began his response by quoting Brown's "keep your emotions off the internet" line. He added that he'd always shown Brown "love and respect" and accused the perennial Pro Bowler of having a big ego. "Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference".

It concerned Brown, whose first snip at Smith-Schuster two weeks ago was subtle.

It's not like Brown revealed anything we didn't know about Smith-Schuster.

Brown then refused to practice, complained of knee pain but refused to go for an MRI and then went AWOL on the team before consequently being benched by head coach Mike Tomlin for his team's Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The post seemed to indicate that there was, indeed, some love between the wide receivers, but that may no longer be the case after Brown's decision to "take shots", as Smith-Schuster saw it.
