Texans safety Justin Reid can't wait to 'smash' Raiders receiver Antonio Brown

The Steelers dealt Brown to the Oakland Raiders in part because of the emergence of Smith-Schuster. However, considering that Texans safety Justin Reid has already come to Smith-Schuster's defense, tweeting that he "can't want to smash this dude", perhaps Brown might want to avoid making too many enemies online.

Just when we thought we were out, Antonio Brown drags us back in.

The Oakland Raiders receiver first took to Twitter on Sunday to offer some words of wisdom.

Less than two hours later, Brown was doing just the opposite, replying to a Steelers fan who reminded him that Smith-Schuster was the team's 2018 MVP.

Additionally, Smith-Schuster expressed his disappointment over Brown's slight of his game, writing: "Crazy how big that ego got to be to take shots at people who show you love!" The Ravens beat the Cleveland Browns and the Steelers' season ended much sooner than they hoped.

Smith-Schuster has not yet issued a response to AB's most recent troll job, but we wouldn't be surprised if he chooses not to engage with the new Raiders receiver.

"All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league", Smith-Schuster tweeted. Being a top tier performer for the Steelers, combined with his social media presence and lovable celebration has made him a cult hero, and the worst possible person for Brown to try and attack. He posted a tweet stating that he was "genuinely happy" when Brown was traded and earned a contract in the range he was seeking.

In the message, dated to 2015, Smith-Schuster (then a USC player) appears to laud Brown and ask the veteran wideout for tips on becoming a better receiver.
