Pro Football Talk – A year and a half ago, JuJu Smith-Schuster was a big Antonio Brown fan. He still is, and he’s now also a teammate.

Smith-Schuster, the Steelers’ second-round draft pick, posted on Twitter today a screenshot of a message he sent to Brown in November of 2015, asking Brown if he could have any tips to improve his game.

“What’s up AB? I’m a receiver at the University of Southern California,” Smith-Schuster wrote. “I appreciate all your work. You’re a great man on and off the field. Do you have any tips that can help take my game to the next level? Thanks man.”

Smith-Schuster then posted a picture of himself and Brown working together recently at the Steelers’ practice facility. Smith-Schuster did not say whether Brown responded to the message a year and a half ago, but they’ll have plenty of time to work together now.


Awwwww, such a heart-warming story. The new guy sending DMs to his idol back when he was still a college kid learning the ropes of his position. Fast forward a year and a half, and now these two guys (Juju Smith-Schuster and Antonio Brown) are teammates! Can you believe it? Someone should make a movie about this!

However, I’m not so sure this whole movie idea could ever materialize considering one minor little detail Smith-Schuster omitted in his tweet the other day:

It’s that there’s absolutely no way Antonio Brown ever responded to Smith-Schuster’s Instagram DM. I’m talking zero percent chance he ever saw this until now (that’s if he even follows Schuster-Smith on twitter now). For anyone that knows AB can attest, it’s that he’s too busy to be responding to DMs coming from some college football schmuck. AB’s time is fully-devoted to adding videos to his never-ending Snapchat story (and slinging around IG hoes). The fact that Smith-Schuster even tweeted this makes me already think he’s sort of a fraud. He’s gotta be out of his mind if he expects people to believe AB was giving him tips while AB had no clue he ever existed in the first place.

P.S. – I think I had to edit this blog approximately 700 times because I kept misspelling Juju Schuster-Smith’s name. Perhaps change your name, Juju?
