The feud between Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster is still red hot as of this afternoon. Brown fired another salvo on Monday.

At least, he thought he did. On Instagram, Brown posted a screenshot of what appears to be an old DM from Smith-Schuster, sent while the latter was still at USC.

In the message from 2015, Smith-Schuster introduces himself as a wide receiver at USC and says he admires Brown. He also asks for tips as a receiver.

"#OnToTheNext," Brown wrote as the caption.

There is just one small problem with this post. Most people agree it makes Brown look bad, not JuJu.

Brown is probably trying to convey how he has been a star since before JuJu was even in the league, and how JuJu, the new No. 1 in Pittsburgh, looked up to him. Even so, this post is backfiring on AB.

If anything, it makes Smith-Schuster look better, because he was simply asking for advice from an established player, and Brown is calling him out for...being friendly and respectful about it?

This saga continues to be bizarre.
