Antonio Brown, JuJu engage in Twitter war of words

Posted April 09, 2019

On Monday, the new Raiders wideout continued his jabbing at Smith-Schuster when he shared a direct message the younger receiver once sent Brown seeking advice.

The tandem of Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster in Pittsburgh might've been the most risky wide receiver duo in the NFL. Brown called out Smith-Schuster's fumble in a late-season loss to the New Orleans Saints, which came on the Saints' half of the field with the Steelers trailing 31-28 in the final minute.

First, he quoted Brown himself, who tweeted earlier in the day to "Keep your emotions off the internet".

Or at least we thought.

The unhappy exchange began, ironically enough, after Brown tweeted the following message: "Keep your emotions off the internet".

Brown later tweeted about a picture of Smith-Schuster depicted as the Steelers most valuable player saying that the second-year player, "fumbled the whole post season in the biggest game of year". Plus, the content of the message only paints Smith-Schuster in a kind light.

"Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love!"

The Steelers lost a great player and are better off without him.

Over the weekend, the Oakland Raiders WR chose to take a shot at his former teammate by bringing up the fact that he cost the Steelers a playoff berth by fumbling the ball against the New Orleans Saints in 2018. "No need for that", Reid wrote while reposting Brown's tweet.

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.
