Chiefs receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster trolled Eagles cornerback James Bradberry with a Valentine’s Day theme and AJ Brown went off clapping back.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster decided to spread love with a traditional Valentine on Twitter — you know, like the ones that you’d get from the girl/boy with cooties in elementary school. Of course, this was all just a ploy to troll Philadelphia Eagles cornerback James Bradberry.
The Valentine read “I’ll hold you when it matters most” with a picture of Bradberry to accompany it, a fitting gesture considering that JuJu was the one who drew the flag on the Eagles cornerback. Objectively hilarious stuff from Smith-Schuster.
Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown did not share that same sentiment.
Not long after JuJu’s post on Twitter, Brown quote-tweeted it and absolutely clapped back like a group of the worst people you’ve ever met when the plane lands as he completely laid into the Chiefs wideout.

The “first off congratulations” absolutely reeks of Ricky Bobby and his use of “all due respect”. Much like a painting that’s not worth anything, Brown immediately followed up with an iconic dig at Smith-Schuster as he called him “Tik Tok boy”.
Where Brown is a bit off-base, however, is that Smith-Schuster was not on his way out of the league. Frankly, he wasn’t close. Yes, a down year with the Steelers in 2021 did limit the contract he was going to get last offseason, but he chose to go to the Chiefs on a one-year prove-it deal to earn more money. Playing with Patrick Mahomes will help that.
Really, that’s just smart business on the part of Smith-Schuster when you think about it that way.
And speaking of smart, the Chiefs receiver didn’t prolong the beef as he responded to Brown’s retaliation.
There was a lot of talk after the Eagles’ loss in the Super Bowl that the majority of the team handled themselves with great class talking to the media. But while Brown is, in fact, stepping up to defend his teammate on social media, the more time that passes, the more Philadelphia seems just a little bit salty about what went down in Glendale.
