Antonio Brown's penchant for trash talk has not slipped even as he's been away from the NFL now for quite some time.

After appearing in only one game last season due to a myriad of issues, AB is still a free agent. He wanted to follow Tom Brady to his next stop, but Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians has already ruled out signing the talented but seemingly unstable wide receiver.

In his free time, Brown has been broadcasting himself on Instagram Live. During a recent session, he took a jab at Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons, who is widely regarded as the top wide receiver in the NFL.

It is a title that Brown claims he still holds, even though we haven't seen much of him on the field of late.

"I'm the best receiver in the game...Tell Julio to look up the stats. I got more touchdowns than Julio Jones had in the past five years, and I took a year off," Brown said, via B/R Gridiron.

Look, AB is still talented. He's getting older, but even after some time off he scored a touchdown in his only NFL game of 2019.

However, it's not fair to say he's still the best in the league when he's not actually in the league.
