Antonio Brown throws shade on ex-teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster
He just can’t help himself.
Once again, former Steelers receiver Antonio Brown castigates a former teammate. This time, on the receiving end was JuJu Smith-Schuster in the form of a tweet.
Brown, who walked out on the Steelers last year, was traded to the Oakland Raiders in the offseason.
A Steelers fan on Twitter shared a picture of Smith-Schuster as the team’s most valuable player.

So, in ever predictable fashion, Brown, a 7-time Pro Bowler, commented on the fact that Smith-Schuster fumbled in the waning moments in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.
“Emotion: boy fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year,” Brown wrote on Twitter. “Everyone went blind to busy making guys famous not enough reality these days!”

Smith-Schuster didn’t take the shot lying down.
His retort was a little warm.
“All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league,” wrote Smith-Schuster, a 2017 second-round pick. “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?
“Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love! Smh.”
