Antonio Brown calls out Smith-Schuster on Twitter

Antonio Brown may have alienated the last person left in Pittsburgh who still had some love for the former Steelers wide receiver.

Brown was sent to the Raiders in a trade earlier this off-season after a public falling out between him and the Steelers' brass.

That prompted the future Hall-of-Famer to urge "emotional" Steelers fans to move on and buy his Raiders jersey, leading to another fan to post an image of JuJu Smith-Schuster as the "2018 Steeler Most Valuable Player".

It was reported that Smith-Schuster earning the award played a factor in Brown wanting out from Pittsburgh. His marriage with the Steelers was marked by huge numbers and an ascent into one of the most dynamic players in the National Football League, but it all came crashing down starting with Brown's questionable DNP in a season-ending win over Cincinnati. Sub-tweets on Twitter have been exchanged by Smith-Schuster and Brown, beginning a war of words on social media.

The second-year wide receiver talked about Brown's ego.

On Sunday, things came to a boil when Brown called out Smith-Schuster for his fourth-quarter fumble in Week 16 against the Saints - a game the Steelers had to win.

In response to that criticism, Smith-Schuster used Brown's own tweet against him and launched into a string of attacks against his former brother in black and yellow. Smith-Schuster - who is still on his rookie contract while Brown is on his third extension - had expressed his support for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger shortly before then.
