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

Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had a clear plan from the moment the season ended: Don't dip into the Antonio Brown mess.

It's hard to really pinpoint where this social media debacle originated, but March 10, 2019 seems like a good starting point.

"I respect his game but I can't wait to smash this dude", Reid wrote, quoting Brown's tweet criticizing Smith-Schuster "No need for that".

Brown, who is now a member of the Raiders, responded to a Steelers fan who tagged the receiver in a post that highlighted Smith-Schuster's team MVP award last season. To while Brown proceeded to throw Smith-Schuster under the bus for his fumble against the New Orleans Saints last season.

Don't forget, though: He's totally not mad.

The unhappy exchange began, ironically enough, after Brown tweeted the following message: "Keep your emotions off the internet".

Smith-Schuster didn't take long to reply, sending a good old-fashioned, not-so-subtle subtweet less than one hour later, mimicking Brown's message from earlier in the afternoon. He did what any sensible person in the midst of a Twitter war would do: take the feud to Instagram. There's... nothing wrong with that. Posting this, at this point, is inexcusable and an unbelievably bad look.

"JuJu was in AB's Pizza Hut commercials - you don't think that got to [Brown]?" one team source said.

As seen in the IG post embedded below, Brown posted a screenshot of a private DM that JuJu had sent him in 2015, back when JuJu was still playing college ball at USC.
