Antonio Brown has a message for someone in particular

Antonio Brown is great at catching passes. His subtweet game is pretty strong as well.

Earlier today, Brown put up a message on Twitter which wasn’t very hard to decipher.

While he didn’t mention anybody by name, it’s fairly obvious (though technically plausibly deniable) that this is in reference to former Steelers teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster‘s earlier praise of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

“I was so blessed to enter the league and play with a Hall of Fame QB as a 20-year old,” Smith-Schuster wrote. “Ben has taught me so much, he’s a true Leader and I can’t wait to rock with my guy this season.”

Of course, Smith-Schuster is a year away from being able to get his next contract, and the Steelers are carrying that big dead-money hit ($21 million) for trading Brown anyway. But it doesn’t hurt to keep everyone happy in anticipation.

You just have to be prepared to be called out for it by former teammates.

  1. Of course he’s talking about JJSS.

    Just wish AB would focus on his current team, not his ex.

  2. “Do not listen to any NFL player who haven’t got paid yet! They will do and say anything to make sure they going to get paid even if it’s compromising integrity or anything ! sad but true”

    Or for that matter, don’t listen to the guys who have been paid. Like the one who had signed an extension just year earlier. Because they too have no integrity and will say anything to justify their own narrative, and satisfy their oversized egos.

  3. Now lets all remember the comments because if Ju Ju has a blow up season and decides he wants to be the highest paid WR, we all know what the steelers will do. Deja Vu.

  4. Mr. Big Chest STILL can’t shut up and move on. He’s just mad that Juju is gonna be getting what he thought would be his money before too long

  5. I can’t wait until Mr. Big Chest shows up late for practice with Gruden now his coach.

    This is an accident waiting to happen.

  6. Hard to believe they passed him over for that meaningless team MVP award. He seems like he’d just get along great with everybody.

    ————————————-
    Make him the highest paid wide receiver in the history of the NFL? That’s the only way it would be Deja Vu because that’s exactly what they did for AB.

  8. Antonio. Please go watch the video of JuJu getting drafted. After watching it. If this tweet was subliminally aimed at him. You should realize that JuJu is a humble person, and that video shows it. 2017 draft class looks pretty solid right now. 3 young leaders drafted right after each other. Watt at 1. JuJu at 2. Connor at 3. Thank you Colbert 🙂 and thank you Antonio, I personally did enjoy watching those last 6 years of dominance at the Wide Receiver position. But as Tomlin has stated the team has moved on. You should too, besides you got what you wanted right, more money 🙂

  9. AB will be begging for Ben to be throwing him balls, come week 5, if it even takes that long. You got what you wanted chump, now shut your trap & worry about how finishing below .500 is gonna feel for the next 3 seasons.

  10. It’s clear athletes like AB have no clue how the real world works. Kissing up to those above you, if done right, is how the business world works.

  11. I am very glad the Steeles managed to get nine good years from AB and even happier that this cancer is somebody else’s problem. JUJu will get paid well and more.

  12. We can already see what the future has in store for AB….and it’s not pretty. Ju Ju will have success, AB will have…..well, not the same level of success. It’s over Johnny…IT’S OVER.

  13. What difference does it make if they have gotten “paid”, or not? Brown “got paid” multiple times, and still acted the fool. So glad to see him admit his entire off-season clown show was BS, and was staged for the $$. Now that he has shown his true colors, he can drop the BR hurt my feelings act.

    Why does the media take what he, and Bell are saying as Gospel? Brown is the ultimate diva that wanted more guaranteed money, and by his own admission was willing to do or say anything to get it. Bell bet on himself, lost, and now has to make up some story to justify not taking the Steelers offer, an offer that his agent felt he should take. Bell even goes so far as to say the Steelers wouldn’t let him play video games, and make his music. Good riddance to both.

  14. AB’s right. JuJu’s pandering for a pay day and if they chew him up and spit him out for being who he is,which is not a No.1 receiver, he’s going to understand how shady the business is. If you’re a star, control your own destiny. If you’re a worker, adhere to the standards you must in order to keep your job. Two different ways to live.

  15. Man, AB gets so dang triggered at JuJu. Is he really that scared that JuJu might actually be better than him so he keeps up these attacks. Man, AB needs to grow the hell up. Move on, and focus on something else.

    This clearly looks like this man has NO friends in his life. Well, no decent friends. My friends would call me out on this, and they would have bust me up if I dyed my mustache blonde. AB, take your money, and make some new friends bud. Stop worrying about Ben and JuJu.

  16. He is sorta right though… Also JuJu seems like a nice guy who doesn’t want to create drama. So with those two factors, you have to be a little skeptical of his praise of Ben Roethlisberger. But I don’t see JuJu as a guy who has locker room drama.

  17. Dear Antonio Brown, you are a professional athlete and entertainer and you make millions of dollars playing a game. You have earned a wonderful opportunity in life. Can you please try to spend more of your time helping those less fortunate as you exhibit class and dignity in your life which would include staying in your lane. There is no need to bash others to get what you want. “Live YOUR best life, young man.”

  18. Harrison is out of the NFL and has no problems with Ben. Let us see what AB has to say about his new QB who doesn’t throw into double or triple coverage.Seems AB is still on the rag.

  19. If nothing else, Brown has gotten everyone to call him by his ridiculous self-given nickname.

  20. Say what you want about AB but there seems to be a method to his madness. He has been proven right so far. Big Ben is not a leader, the Steelers are a hot mess, and JSS is brown nosing Big Ben so he can get paid.

  21. Maybe JuJu’s not airing his exact feelings, but why is it bad to support his team?

    There are many players in the NFL that have gotten paid and still haven’t thrown their team under the bus.

  22. Its not like he’s lying. JJSS will become disgruntled as well when the Steelers dont want pay him. You fanboys get in your feelings and forget this is a business first and foremost. Dont hate the player…hate the game!

  23. So, with Mr Thin Skin’s logic, we should ignore everything he said while he was trying to “get paid” himself.

    He’s right, of course, but no one did it better than himself….

  24. When they see the kind of numbers AB is going to put up in Oakland this season, everyone is going to realize pretty quickly that Rothlisberger was a HUGE part of his success.

    You don’t have to be skeptical at all. Nothing wrong with a player liking his teammates.

    Brown and Bell are great players and there is no question that they worked extremely hard to become as good as they are, but they aren’t great teammates. There’s a reason that a team so talented didn’t win anything. Maybe Ben is also not a great teammate, but it sure looks like JuJu is. Why not say the right thing and do some winning with your future HOF QB.

    He has proven that a very talented wide receiver can force his way off a team and be signed by the most unpredictable mess of a team in the league. Yes… worse than the Steelers.

    That’s all he’s proven so far.

    Bell pulling up lame in the playoffs. Brown going to facebook live in the locker room. These two were never good teammates.

  28. Yes, if you’re enjoying playing for a team that hasn’t had a losing season since you were seven years old and catching passes from a likely Hall of Fame quarterback, you should be prepared to be called out by the poet laureate of the NFL. Poor JuJu … I’m sure life holds no meaning for him now that he’s been dissed in one of Mr. Big Chest’s tweets.

  29. Mr. Big Chest is a joke…and will revert to the 6th round pick he was..nothing without a qb that gives him an average of 17 TARGETS a game…he will start being the physco he always was…as far as L.Bell..well i’m sure being light 14.5mil..still hurts ROFL

  30. A grown petty little man in a league full of petty little grown men… dude, you’re gone, you “got paid”, now PLEASE SHUT UP and move on.

  31. This has always been about Daffy Duck’s jealousy (and also wanting more money) towards JuJu.
    I’m glad this jackass is in Oakland.

  32. “They will do and say anything to make sure they going to get paid even if it’s compromising integrity or anything !”

    They’ll even accept a team MVP award that I should have gotten!!!!!!!!!! They’re really really really mean people!!!!!!

  33. For a guy not man enough to own up to actions this year in Pittsburgh he still can’t help himself from running his lips. To bad all the sports announcers who blame any one and everyone in Pittsburgh is so blinded by his smile as he has proven it is and always will be about himself

  34. How does gettig paid or not paid affect how you feel about the other players on your team.
    Maybe the national media will stop blaming Ben and blame the idiot that quit on his team and tried to drag every teammate he could through the mud so that he could get paid. The same guy that can’t be happy now, even if he is paid because he’s wrong.

  35. “Say what you want about AB but there seems to be a method to his madness. He has been proven right so far. Big Ben is not a leader, the Steelers are a hot mess, and JSS is brown nosing Big Ben so he can get paid.”

    How has he proven Ben to not be a leader? He’s proven he’s a jackass who is willing to quit on his teammates, drag them through the mud and torpedo his team to get paid. And you want to believe what he says because he said it, and it feeds your hate of the Steelers like a dog licking up crumbs. He hasn’t proven anything about anyone but himself.

  36. Antonio may be a great football player, but
    has lost all credibility. His word means nothing.

  37. so many people forget that the steelers DID pay Brown. He WAS the highest paid WR. That’s where it ended, as soon as another player was making more than him, he felt disrespected. Then when the youngster gets the team MVP over you, you feel more disrespected. That’s when he decided he needed more money. When he was playing on his first big contract and was outplaying the contract, the Steelers took care of him by moving money from later years until they could get him a new contract. But ya… AB is the victim! lol

  38. JuJu will be the man in Pittsburgh this season! Some teams seem to have a knack for finding certain types of players. While Pittsburgh keeps striking out on DB’s (ironic since Tomlin used to coach that position), their track record for WR’s is pretty good. (Sanders, Wallace, AB, JuJu)

    I don’t doubt the Steelers will keep finding new targets for Big Ben to throw to via the draft.

  39. AB’s bugging when he should be happy he got what he wanted. Stop talking about the Steelers you are a Raider now.

  40. AB, not everyone is willing to compromise their integrity. You only know what you are willing to do and transfer that to what you expect others to do. Obviously you are willing to comprise your integrity.

  41. AB talking about integrity has to be the funniest thing I’ve read this week.

  42. If he spend this waisted time and energy on social media with his family, he might be a better person! (IJS!)

  43. I don’t think anybody has to listen to Smith-Schuster for an opinion on Big Ben. Big Ben has two super bowl trophies. Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell together have zero. I think Antonio Brown is frustrated because he’s never been part of a super bowl winning team. The Raiders are building a winning team, and Brown could play a lead role. He gets his second chance in Oakland. If he stays focused on football, he could end up getting that missing ring.
