To be clear, Smith-Schuster wasn't at the core of Brown's undoing in Pittsburgh, which included feeling like a scapegoat for the team's late-season implosion.
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 in Oakland. Smith-Schuster as Pittsburgh's No. 1 receiver. Twitter rushed to Smith-Schuster's defense, pointing out that Brown didn't play in all 16 games past year and has a higher fumble to catch ratio in his career than Smith-Schuster. But many players may also feel that Brown's disrespectful treatment of Smith-Schuster and others in Pittsburgh reflects badly on National Football League players. "I was genuinely happy for him too when he got traded to Oakland [with] a big contract, and now he takes shots at me on social media?"
Smith-Schuster has not yet issued a response to AB's most recent troll job, but we wouldn't be surprised if he chooses not to engage with the new Raiders receiver. "Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference".
The Saints recovered; the Steelers lost the game and control of their playoff destiny; Pittsburgh missed the postseason; Brown didn't play in the season finale and. well, you know how the story ends.

I want to go back to having fun. "What am I doing, you know I have a attractive life, so I'm gonna go back to that handsome life". The decision on whether or not to retain Walton would've been Magic's to make, but with him gone everything is now in question.
The message violates Smith-Schuster's privacy.
The second-year wide receiver talked about Brown's ego.
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.
