As Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown awaits a possible suspension for going after general manager Mike Mayock, another star wide receiver took his own shot at Mayock on Twitter.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas called out Oakland’s general manager for where he ranked Thomas among wide receiver prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Mayock ranked Thomas tied with Sterling Shepard as the fifth-best receivers in the 2016 class behind draft busts like Laquon Treadwell, Corey Coleman and Josh Doctson.



As Thomas said, the rankings didn’t exactly work out too well for Mayock. New Orleans’ star receiver just signed a record-breaking contract in July. Meanwhile, Doctson, Treadwell and Coleman were all cut before their rookie contracts expired.

While Brown’s future with Oakland remains uncertain, it’s clear he at least has one peer on his side in the ongoing clash with Mayock.
