Rams lucked out by never expressing serious interest in Antonio Brown

Weddle faced both Brown and Smith-Schuster the last two years while playing with the Ravens, but he won't get to square off with the new Raiders receiver in 2019.

In case you missed it, or avoided it, the former Pittsburgh Steelers teammates spent much of Sunday trading public jabs on Twitter. Steelers players vote for the award, which Brown had won four times in nine years. He showed support for his fellow wide receiver from the Pro Bowl but made clear he wouldn't be involved.

Brown's unprompted tweet referred to Smith-Schuster's critical fumble in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints last season.

What did Brown think this post was going to accomplish?

"All I ever did was show that man love and respect from the moment I got to the league", Smith-Schuster tweeted. The loss was a massive blow to the Steelers' playoff hopes.

Not long afterward, Smith-Schuster - clearly hurt by the attack - lashed out at Brown's "big ego".

Black money, jobs missing from BJP's 'jhansa patra': Congress
It pledged to simplify the goods and services tax, which disrupted businesses and hurt growth when Modi introduced it in 2017. Kashmir's special constitutional status prevents outsiders from buying property in the state, among other restrictions.

Brown and Smith-Schuster had traded words over Twitter on Sunday.

Smith-Schuster once recalled that message during his first offseason workouts with the team.

"What's up AB?" Smith-Schuster wrote.

As football fans know, Brown would eventually get traded to the Oakland Raiders, and any slim chance of the speedster ending up in Los Angeles was quickly thrown out the window, which seems for the best after looking at what the wideout has been up to lately.

Brown then refused to practice, complained of knee pain but refused to go for an MRI and then went AWOL on the team before consequently being benched by head coach Mike Tomlin for his team's Week 17 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
