Antonio Brown may want to put down the phone. What’s your views on the whole situation? Hit me up and let me know what you think.
The star Raiders wide receiver tried to continue his public shaming of his former teammates Monday, though his latest stunt seems to have backfired.
Brown posted an Instagram showing a screenshot of a 2015 direct message from Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was then at USC and asking for advice about making the NFL. Brown included the caption “……..” with a microphone emoji and the hashtag “#OnToTheNext.” If Brown thought he was outing Smith-Schuster for admitting he looked up to him, he was late to the party, as Smith-Schuster tweeted a screenshot of the conversation himself two years ago. Plus, the content of the message only paints Smith-Schuster in a kind light. the University of Southern California. I appreciate all your work. Your [sic] a great man on and off the field. Do you have any tips that can help take my game to the next level? Thanks man.”
The former teammates have been feuding since Brown ripped Smith-Schuster on Twitter on Sunday for his fumble in Week 16 last season, which cost the Steelers a chance at the playoffs.
“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league,” Smith-Schuster later wrote in a tweet, referring to Brown. “I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland w/ a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?” #passinterference #nfluk🇺🇸🏈🇬🇧 #nfl #nfldraft #nflrumors #nflcombine #nflnews #antoniobrown #jujusmithschuster #raiders #steelers
