Antonio Brown wasted no time throwing JuJu Smith-Schuster under the bus after being dealt to Oakland in March, but the third-year wide receiver has since moved on.

While speaking Wednesday at the Steelers' mandatory minicamp, Smith-Schuster admitted he has no beef with Brown but wishes things wouldn't have ended so abruptly between them.

"The man's a role model. In that situation, I didn't want it to end like that," Smith-Schuster told reporters. "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."

Kirk Cousins: I’m a .500 quarterback, ready to take game to 'next level'

Kirk Cousins: I’m a .500 quarterback, ready to take game to 'next level' Cousins had a career season in 2018 but the Vikings finished 8-7-1 and missed the playoffs.

Things first got heated in April when Brown took a jab at Smith-Schuster on Twitter after a fan reminded the veteran that he wasn't voted the team's MVP. But Smith-Schuster, confused by the "shots" Brown took at him, opted to take the high road.

It's a long way removed from the pass-catching duo that dominated together on the field and supported each other off it.

When asked what the experience taught him, Smith-Schuster said he will continue to keep to himself and be an accessible leader.

"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."

As for Brown, it was announced Tuesday that the Raiders will be featured on this season of HBO’s football documentary series "Hard Knocks," something Smith-Schuster is looking forward to watching as he follows his former teammate from afar.

Big Ben happy Steelers have returned to 'normalcy' after recent drama

Big Ben happy Steelers have returned to 'normalcy' after recent drama The Pittsburgh Steelers have been the NFL's soap opera over the last two seasons in large part due to the drama surrounding stars Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown and their eventual departures from the team. Ben Roethlisberger is the lone "Killer B" left standing in Pittsburgh, and the veteran quarterback is enjoying the lack of controversy surrounding the AFC North club. "It's been a little crazy the last few years, maybe more so than usual that we're used to dealing with," Roethlisberger said, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "To kind of get back to quote-unquote normalcy is kind of nice.

"I'll be super excited to see what he does and what the team does," Smith-Schuster said. "Hard Knocks will be interesting to watch."'

Smith-Schuster led the Steelers with 111 catches for 1,426 yards en route to his first Pro Bowl selection in 2018.

Alexander Gustafsson gives surprise retirement announcement after UFC Stockholm loss.
Three-time UFC title challenger Alexander Gustafsson retired in the octagon after a submission loss to Anthony Smith. Before a home crowd silenced by his loss, Gustafsson laid down his gloves, declaring "The show is over, guys." Smith caught Gustafsson with a rear-naked choke in the fourth-round after a throw attempt failed. Gustafsson had nearly escaped from trouble when gravity forced him to the canvas, and several elbows opened a choke opportunity for Smith, who apologized to the crowd at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
