New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler admitted to some good-natured ribbing between he and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown.
Butler picked off a Landry Jones pass intended for Brown in the end zone and proceeded to mock Brown with a ridiculous celebration.

Butler admitted after New England’s 27-16 victory that his bizarre squirming was meant to mock the usually jubilant Brown.
“Yes,” Butler said with a smile when asked if his celebration was meant to get Brown’s attention. “Me and Brown had a conversation before. It was a joke to him, once I showed him how I do it and you know I just did it in the game.”
Brown probably didn’t think it was a laughing matter at the time and still probably isn’t thrilled that his Steelers suffered their second-straight defeat at the hands of Butler and the Pats.
