JuJu Smith-Schuster is disappointed with how things ended with Antonio Brown and says he has "no hard feelings" toward his former teammate.
Smith-Schuster is opening his first minicamp as the No. 1 receiving option for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"The man's a role model. In that situation, I didn't want it to end like that," Smith-Schuster said. "I have no hard feelings against him. Obviously if we're ever in the same room, I'm going to say 'What's up' to him. I think hatred is a huge word to use against somebody. At the end of the day, he's a great player, he comes out every day with work ethic. He worked hard. Other than that, I don't have anything toward him like that."
Brown demanded a trade shortly after leaving the Steelers in Week 17.
"I never want to be the center of attention for causing problems," Smith-Schuster said. "I just try to stay positive as much as possible. When stuff like that goes sideways, I say what I say and then I back out and leave it at that."
