Browns QB Baker Mayfield and Ex-Steelers WR Antonio Brown Waging a Social Media War

Former Steelers, Raiders and Patriots wide out Antonio Brown has been the most talked about player in the NFL this season despite playing in just one game while getting traded and released by a pair of teams.

The former All-Pro wide receiver is currently without a job, and he stated last week that he no longer will play in the NFL, only to quickly reverse course on that decision on Friday.

Brown is also very active on social media, getting into fights with plenty of former players and ex teammates like former Steelers safety Ryan Clark.

His latest battle should be of interest to Browns fans, as his latest war is with none other than Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield made a jab at Brown over having issues with his feet after an incident overseas in a cryotherapy booth this summer in which his feet became frostbitten.

The Browns second-year thrower also alluded to the fact that Brown threw a tantrum over not having a helmet that he liked, at one point stating that he was going to retire from the game for that reason.

As you can see below, it didn’t take Brown long to respond to the comment made by Mayfield, and now we have a full scale battle between the two on twitter.

As always it will be interesting to see what Mayfield (if he does) responds with at Brown, or if he simply lets the situation go as he gets ready for Sunday’s 1pm showdown with the Baltimore Ravens.
