The AFC Pro Bowl roster is among the most talented groups of football players ever assembled. Unfortunately, that roster doesn't have a shot to win this year's game as the team is mired in a circus-like atmosphere.
Yesterday, JuJu Smith-Schuster arrived 30 minutes late for the team's first practice. His teammates were none too pleased.
"I've never seen anything more unprofessional in my life," said AFC quarterback Patrick Mahomes who ironically watched his own defense all year long.
"We assigned a linebacker to shadow him to make sure he arrived on time. A chaperone. But the linebacker couldn't keep up," said AFC WR Keenan Allen.
James Conner, Alejandro Villanueva, Maurkice Pouncey, and David DeCastro didn't seem to have a problem with the tardiness. "Time heals all wounds," barked Pouncey.
Steelers President Art Rooney II was unavailable for comment as his phone line appeared to be disconnected.
ESPNpgh.com was able to reach Antonio Brown, who picked up on the first ring: "JuJu gotta do what's best for him. He's an exceptionalism. Chest up, eyes up, prayed up. Hashtag call God."
Why was Smith-Schuster late to practice?
"I was playing Red Dead Redemption 2. I was riding my horse."
The Pro Bowl will take place on Sunday at 3 pm.
