Antonio Brown shades JuJu Smith-Schuster, Derek Carr in latest tweets

Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown has yet to find a team to sign him as the NFL continues to investigate his off-field behavior, but that has not stopped the star wide receiver from talking smack to other players on social media.

Brown took aim at two former teammates in some of his latest tweets on Monday. He first fired a shot at Derek Carr, implying that he believes the Raiders are going to dump the quarterback this offseason and that Carr won’t be moving to Las Vegas with the team.

Carr is coming off another less-than-stellar season with the Raiders, and many believe Jon Gruden will look to make a change at the quarterback position this offseason.

Brown then took a swipe at Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who had beef with Brown all throughout the offseason. Smith-Schuster said during the summer that he was ready to take over the No. 1 receiver role in Pittsburgh with Brown gone, but he had a disappointing year. Brown called him “Boo Boo” and told him to “learn some respect.”

The 500 is likely a reference to Smith-Schuster’s receiving total, as he had just 552 yards in 12 games this season. Some of that was due to Ben Roethlisberger going down with an injury early on and Smith-Schuster battling some injuries of his own, but Brown doesn’t seem to care.

Brown refuses to keep a low profile on social media even amid reports that one NFC team wants to sign him. He also recently blasted Ben Roethlisberger again, and he has made it clear that he is not going to change his ways. Time will tell if that impacts his chances of finding another job in the NFL.
