Antonio Brown, JuJu engage in Twitter war of words

Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said that he was "disappointed" with the way Brown left the team.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown made a scathing comment about JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media Sunday. The former third-round pick from Stanford took to Twitter to send a strong message to Brown.

One Twitter user shared a picture of wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster as the team's 2018 team MVP. His marriage with the Steelers was marked by huge numbers and an ascent into one of the most dynamic players in the National Football League, but it all came crashing down starting with Brown's questionable DNP in a season-ending win over Cincinnati.

That got him some predictably snarky feedback, to which Brown encouraged "emotional" Pittsburgh fans to purchase the Raiders jersey he now wears, a result of the Steelers acquiescing to his trade demand and dealing him last month to Oakland. 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.

How much would it cost to close U.S.-Mexico border?
A border closure would squeeze United States corn, soybean and dairy farmers, too, if they can't ship their produce into Mexico. Wait times at the border crossing at Brownsville, Texas, reached 180 minutes Monday, twice the peak a year ago, officials said.

It appeared evident last season that Brown was frustrated with Smith-Schuster and the number of balls that were going to his way instead of Brown's.

Then the USC product addressed Brown directly.

Even with consistent double-coverages over the year, Brown racked up receptions, yards, and touchdowns at a staggering rate while he was with the Steelers. Brown in Oakland. Smith-Schuster as Pittsburgh's No. 1 receiver.
