Jalen Ramsey talked trash to JuJu Smith-Schuster prior to Sunday's Pittsburgh Steelers-Los Angeles Rams game, telling the wide receiver that he'll never be like former teammate Antonio Brown.
"No disrespect to him, he's not Antonio Brown," Ramsey said. "I matched up with Antonio there for two years, and that was a good battle, and I held my own in those battles, and yeah, now I'm going up against a different person, different body type, different receiver a little bit. He can make plays."
After the Steelers defeated the Rams 17-12, Smith-Schuster agreed.
"He's right, though," Smith-Schuster said. "I'm not Antonio Brown. I'll never be Antonio Brown. I am myself. I'm JuJu Smith-Schuster. I'm not as good as him yet. I think I still have time to proceed to get to his level. But we're two totally different persons."
Either guarded by Ramsey to doubled, the wide receiver was held to three catches on six targets for 44 yards.
"He talks a lot," Smith-Schuster said of Ramsey. "He talks so much. He said so many cuss words I've never heard of, and I'm 22 years old. He's a good player, man."
