Antonio Brown's resentment grew with each JuJu Smith-Schuster reception

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown celebrates with JuJu Smith-Schuster afters scoring during the first half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Pittsburgh Sunday Oct. 22 2017

To while Brown proceeded to throw Smith-Schuster under the bus for his fumble against the New Orleans Saints last season.

Brown, who was traded to the Oakland Raiders last month to become the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver, had been tagged on a posted image with the header touting the 22-year-old Smith-Schuster as the Steelers' 2018 team MVP. That much was evident on Sunday, as the now-former Steelers wide receiver engaged in a war of tweets with followers and then an ex-teammate.

The feud started when Brown wrote Sunday on Twitter: "Keep your emotions off the internet", which prompted a response from multiple fans.

Smith-Schuster had previously defended Ben Roethlisberger, with whom Brown clearly has beef. Brown's double-up left Smith-Schuster little choice but to respond. The two receivers were cordial, with Smith-Schuster deferring to Brown at every turn, out of respect for his All-Pro pedigree.

Brown drew claims of jealousy over Smith-Schuster, an exciting, young talent primed to take over Brown's role as Pittsburgh's No. 1 wideout. He also replied to a handful of other posts, coming to the defense of Smith-Schuster. The loss was a massive blow to the Steelers' playoff hopes.

The message violates Smith-Schuster's privacy.

Almost everything in the National Football League comes down to money, and Smith-Schuster was messing with Brown's bottom line. If the latter is in fact done with Brown, it might not be long before Steelers fans tweet at him, if only to ask, "What took you so long?"
