JuJu Smith-Schuster Talks About Reaching Out To Antonio Brown But Finding Out He Blocked Him Everywhere
JuJu Smith-Schuster and Antonio Brown were a dynamic duo on the Pittsburgh Steelers, but things fell apart as Brown forced his way off the team.
In the midst of Brown’s exodus from Pittsburgh, he had a very public fallout with JuJu, where he called the wide receiver a bum on social media.
Since that time, Brown has been released by the Raiders, cut by the Patriots, investigated by the league, which kept him from signing with a team until he landed with the Bucs and won a Super Bowl.
While appearing on The Michael Irvin Podcast, JuJu was asked about his relationship with Brown today. He explained he wishes he could talk to AB and patch things up, but the receiver actually blocked him on every single platform.
“Honestly bro, if I could reach out I would, but I can’t,” Smith-Schuster said. “He’s blocked me on all social media from Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter … my phone number. And we just live our lives.”
JuJu says he was happy to see Brown win a Super Bowl a few months ago.
“I wish nothing but the best for him, you know, for him to go out there and win a Super Bowl, like, congrats to him and, he keeps doing it.”
Last season, Smith-Schuster had 97 receptions for 831 yards and nine touchdowns. Despite having a better offer elsewhere this offseason, JuJu elected to take his talents back to Pittsburgh.
