‘He’s not Antonio Brown”https://www.yardbarker.com/” Yardbarker

The Los Angeles Rams will take on the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday, and Jalen Ramsey is expected to have the task of covering JuJu Smith-Schuster. He’s not stressing about the challenge, however.

Speaking with reporters Friday, Ramsey made it clear that in the past when he’s played against Pittsburgh, Antonio Brown was the team’s No. 1 receiver — not Smith-Schuster, as many postulated last season.

When asked about going against Smith-Schuster, who’s now the top receiver on Pittsburgh’s roster, Ramsey said, “No disrespect to him, he’s not Antonio Brown,” per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.

Ramsey then did say he likes Smith-Schuster’s style of play, noting, “He plays very physical, he plays strong, aggressive through the catch.”

But it’s clear that Ramsey doesn’t consider Smith-Schuster to be in the same class as Brown, who is no longer playing as he continues to rail against the NFL amid its investigation into his off-field conduct.

As for Sunday’s matchup, Smith-Schuster was a late addition to Pittsburgh’s injury report. He was a limited participant during Friday’s practice and is questionable to play due to a foot injury.
