On Thursday, Smith-Schuster was asked about Brown’s recent behavior on the Pat McAfee show, most notably his social media behavior.
“It kind of came out of nowhere,” Smith-Schuster said. “It came out of left field. I did not expect to see any of this. You know, playing with Antonio Brown my first couple years, we always talked about being great and dominating. And that’s what we did. The last time we played with each other, we both had over 1,000 yards and 100 catches and what’s going on right now off the field, social media-wise, it’s pretty, pretty crazy. I did not expect (any) of this.
“We were kind of, like, hand-for-hand. Let’s both be great. Let’s both do this. Let’s both reach our goal. And then the situation, what happened with him and with the Steelers, it sucked. Tough situation.”
The third-year receiver then stated he’s “concerned” about the well being of Brown.
“It’s different, for sure,” Smith-Schuster said. “I’m concerned, like you guys. It’s a tough situation for a guy if you take away his job and his passion. Being a guy looking from the outside to the inside, he’s definitely a different dude than who he was on the field.”
Hours later, Brown appeared to respond saying all the harsh words were signs of “love”.
Friday, JuJu responded to the post on Twitter.
“Unblock me so we can talk then.”
Over the past year, Brown has attacked JuJu several times, once calling him “Boo Boo Shoester,” saying his former teammate needed to “learn some respect.”
