It really was only a matter of time until Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield aimed his well-known penchant for shade at free agent wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown, as many know, is in the middle of one of the most demented few months for a player in NFL history, including feuds with former Pittsburgh Steelers teammatescryotherapy frostbite and an ill-advised attempt to paint his unsafe helmet so he could practice in it, among other things. He is also facing sexual assault allegations and has been accused of harassment from a different sexual misconduct accuser, which means it could be a while before he returns to the NFL.

With all of that context, it appears Mayfield — whose team has disappointed with a 1-2 start — just couldn’t resist when a commenter on his Instagram post compared his behavior to Brown’s.

As of Friday night, Brown has not responded to Mayfield’s snipe ... yet.

Brown is just a day removed from a highly personal Twitter fight with Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle, who has played faced off with Brown several times as a member of the Baltimore Ravens.

With another former division rival taking shots at him, it was only be a matter of time before Brown logged on. Like he did with Ben Roethlisberger, Robert Kraft and Shannon Sharpe, Brown fired back by not-so-subtly calling attention to a past impropriety of Mayfield’s.

So ends another day for an unemployed Antonio Brown.
