Did JuJu Smith-Schuster just throw shade at Antonio Brown?

"Wish I could go back in time to play on the same field as this dude, legend!" he captioned a photo of Steelers great Hines Ward on Twitter.

JuJu Smith-Schuster was recently the unsuspected target of an Antonio Brown rant regarding his last season in Pittsburgh, but appears to be well over his former teammate's antics.

The third-year wide receiver on Wednesday tweeted a picture of Steelers great Hines Ward, with himself photoshopped next to him and a caption that left fans reading between the lines.

"Wish I could go back in time to play on the same field as this dude, legend!" he wrote.

Ward responded early Thursday with some encouraging words for Smith-Schuster.

"Would have been an honor, my brother," he wrote. "I’m proud of you. You’re a legend in the making.

Many of Smith-Schuster's Twitter followers were left asking if this was some kind of a shot at Brown, though it's unclear if that's what his intenions were.

One thing is certain: the two have had an interesting relationship as of late.

A feud started earlier this month when Brown wrote on Twitter: "Keep your emotions off the internet."

He then took an ironic jab at Smith-Schuster after a fan reminded Brown that he wasn't voted the Steelers' MVP.

But Smith-Schuster, confused by the "shots" Brown took at him, opted to take the high road.

Brown's outburst only fuels speculation from a January report, indicating his frustration with the team was sparked because he wasn't voted their MVP.
