Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins does not buy that Antonio Brown did not see his catch
The spectacular non-catch made by Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins on Thursday lit up social media. However, it appears Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is among the very few who has yet to see what all the commotion is about.
Although the catch may have gone viral, Brown denied having seen the reception. Hopkins then wasted no time in calling his fellow Pro Bowler out on Twitter:

It is difficult to gauge whether or not Brown is just being coy about the whole situation. The Steelers’ star is one of the most electrifying playmakers in the NFL. He has also, at times, been one of the most prominent users of social. It would be far-fetched to assume he did not come across the catch at some point across the many platforms he uses. This may be why Hopkins is not buying his comments.
Then again, he has been vocal about the whole situation entirely. Hopkins was not shy about his frustration with the penalty afterward. It is certainly understandable given it would have made an excellent addition to his extensive highlight reel of spectacular catches. Although he has yet to receive his apology, the NFL has started to hold officials accountable after their recent historic firing due to performance.
At the very least, it seems Hopkins wants Brown to acknowledge his impressive grab. After all, wideouts have always tried to one-up each other when it comes to such things. If Brown has not seen it by now, it is safe to say Hopkins will have to send him the link:
