Antonio Brown has taken shots at a number of people since being cut by the Patriots on Friday. Among them is Shannon Sharpe, the Hall of Fame tight end and co-host of FS1's Undisputed.

In a tweet that he has since deleted, Brown shared an article pointing out how Sharpe was accused of sexual assault in 2010. Sharpe wasn't his only target though, as Brown took shots at Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and Patriots owner Bob Kraft for their off-the-field controversies.

But the outspoken Sharpe was not going to wait until Monday's edition of Undisputed to address Brown's behavior. Taking to his own social media accounts, Sharpe posted an article of his own pointing out what happened in his sexual assault controversy in 2010. Sharpe's accuser was reportedly stalking him for refusing to date him. The accuser reportedly attempted to get a restraining order against Sharpe only to have the effort dismissed.

Brown, meanwhile, is dealing with sexual assault allegations of his own. He has mostly stayed silent on the matters pending the legal resolutions. But Brown allegedly sent "menacing" texts to one of his accusers last week.

The Patriots cut him soon after finding out what he'd done. Brown has since announced that he is "done" with the NFL.
