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.\"
