Just when you thought Antonio Brown was turning a corner in his apology tour, he takes three steps back out of nowhere.
The controversial WR spent Thursday morning apologizing to the Steelers organization and talking about life outside the NFL, but things took a turn when he touched on two of his former teammates, Hines Ward and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
AB pointed blame at Smith-Schuster for disrespecting him with a social media post of JuJu scoring a touchdown against the Raiders after Brown was traded to Oakland.
“I just think man people got to show more respect and be more considerate to others and I got to learn not to let people who come at me negative react because I’m a leader, whatever I do is going to be magnified times 10,” Brown said about the situation.
“I have nothing against JuJu Smith-Schuster. Why would I? I’m who he want to be, I’m who he want to be.”
Brown then turned his attention to Ward, stating the former Super Bowl MVP never showed him the “respect” he deserved coming into the league.
“Hines Ward never gave me the respect I needed,” Brown said. “Or gave me the positivity or the support I needed. I’ve never been to his house. I never studied plays with him. I never went over how to win and get open.”
Smith-Schuster did not have the type of season he thought he would have as the #1 WR, posting 42 passes caught for 552 yards and three touchdowns.
But, JuJu is still playing in the league while Brown continues to trend downwards with his actions and blaming everybody else around him.
