Former Pittsburgh Steeler Antonio Brown still has some things to get off his chest in regards to his old team. The now Oakland Raider wide receiver had some harsh criticism for ex-teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster on Twitter after he was named team MVP.
The drama started last week when Brown took a perceived shot at Smith-Schuster who is still on his rookie contract stating in a tweet “do not listen to any NFL player who haven’t got paid yet.” The jab conveniently came following JuJu expressing support for his quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Brown finally got Smith-Schuster’s attention when he took a very obvious shot at the Steeler’s wideout bringing up his Week 16 fumble against New Orleans that pretty much doomed the Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes. The tweet was in response to a fan tagging AB in a post bigging up JuJu for winning the teams MVP award. There were whispers of Brown’s of unhappiness with the out of the team MVP voting, his Tweet pretty much confirms he was not feeling the final results.
Schuster responded to his ex-teammate pointing out that he had nothing but love for Brown and was even happy for him when he signed his big contract Oakland. He also called out AB’s ego stating “Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love! Smh.”
Not finished, he followed that up with Mark Twain quote “never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”
Even though Brown hauled in 15 touchdowns last year, Smith-Schuster was clearly the teams biggest weapon leading in receptions (111) and yards (1,426). So like Jay-Z always says “men lie, women lie, numbers don’t.” Things are going to be very interesting when these two teams meet up next season.
