Weeks after a reported trade between the Steelers and Bills fell through, Antonio Brown took the opportunity to troll Buffalo with a subtle jab on Instagram.
Brown posted a meme of himself that referenced Drake’s “Hotline Bling” song. He added the caption: “Stop playing #FakeNews #Historical.”
The post commemorates the “historical” series of events of “fake news” when NFL Network reported late March 7 that the Bills and Steelers were finalizing a deal to send the star wide receiver to Buffalo. The trade fell apart by the next morning and reports surfaced that Brown nixed the deal because he didn’t want to play for Buffalo.
The meme indicates Brown is happy with his new team in Oakland as he’s set to play under coach Jon Gruden.
