Antonio Brown cannot leave his old team alone, it appears.

A day after JuJu Smith-Schuster threw support behind Big Ben, Brown seemingly took a shot at his former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate.

Now, Brown didn’t name Smith-Schuster here, yet it seems clear he’s targeting the third-year receiver here with this comment.

Smith-Schuster is still playing out his rookie contract, and he just defended a person who Brown seems to despise.

There’s also the dynamic at play here that Smith-Schuster is essentially supplanting Brown in Pittsburgh as the team’s No. 1 receiver — something that started taking place last year.

So, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to connect these dots.

What is crystal clear is that Brown is harboring plenty of animosity for his old team, and that he feels he has something to prove going forward with the Oakland Raiders.
