‘He’s Definitely A Different Dude’: Pittsburgh Steelers’ JuJu Smith-Schuster Says He Is ‘Concerned’ About Antonio Brown

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — JuJu Smith-Schuster said he is concerned about Antonio Brown.

In an interview Thursday on Pro Football Talk Live, the Steelers wide receiver made his feelings clear about the current NFL free agent and his former teammate.

“It’s different, for sure,” receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said. “I’m concerned, like you guys. It’s a tough situation for a guy if you take away his job and his passion. Being a guy looking from the outside to the inside, he’s definitely a different dude than who he was on the field.”

Brown admitted Tuesday that he put himself into a bad predicament after he was arrested in Florida last week, but he vowed to make a return to the NFL.

Brown was just released from house arrest while awaiting trial on charges that he attacked a moving truck driver.

His relationship with the NFL has been rocky, with the wide receiver promising to return one minute and cussing out the league the next.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell took to the podium in Miami earlier this week for his annual league press conference before the Super Bowl when he was asked about Brown’s investigation.

“NFL commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledges Antonio Brown’s situation is bigger than football and investigations. “We want to help him get on the right track,” he said. “We are confident it will happen.”
