Antonio Brown’s feud with JuJu Smith-Schuster doesn’t look like it’ll be coming to an end anytime soon.

Brown, for some mind-boggling reason, posted and deleted on Instagram a DM from Smith-Schuster during his days at USC.

The young receiver was asking the current Raiders star for “tips” to take his game “to the next level.” You can see a screenshot of the deleted post below. (RELATED: Oakland Raiders Trade For Antonio Brown, Give Him Contract Worth More Than $50 Million)

What the hell was Brown trying to prove here? The fact he posted this in an attempt to shame or embarrass JuJu is laughable.

The former USC star and current WR1 for the Steelers was a kid when he sent that message. A legit kid. He was an extremely young man who wasn’t even 20 at the time. (RELATED: JuJu Smith-Schuster Responds To Antonio Brown Calling Him Out On Twitter)

He clearly used to look up to Antonio Brown (emphasis on the used to), and this is how he’s getting repaid. It makes no sense, and it comes only days after the new Raiders player claimed he “fumbled” away the season.

Luckily, JuJu seems to have a much better head on his shoulders and isn’t getting into the mud.

Brown might be one of the most talented guys in the league, but he’s going to talk his way right out of it at this point.

You can’t behave like this and expect to be embraced. You just can’t. Guys on his own team won’t want to tolerate this garbage.

If Brown goes out there and stinks up the joint, then the problems are really going to start piling up. It’s one thing to talk trash and win rings.

It’s a whole different scenario to run your mouth and then not produce.
