Harmless or sign of things to come?

PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan)- With the Pittsburgh Steelers, everything is magnified. 

When a young, star receiver shows up 30 minutes late for a practice for an exhibition Pro Bowl game, we try to dissect it.

Some, like Fan Morning Show co-host Colin Dunlap, say this isn't even on the radar of things to consider a "big deal" and that it is a harmless thing. We have no idea what could have been holding him up and it's the Pro Bowl. It's not the Super Bowl. Or the playoffs. Or the regular season. Or even the preseason. 

Dunlap summed up his thoughts on the matter on the air and through a tweet like this:  

Notice these are all references to things that fellow receiver (for now) Antonio Brown has been mixed up in. There's a reason for that. 

Being late to practice has some others worrying. Or at least wondering....

Is JuJu headed down the wrong path? Could playful innocence turn into a huge distraction like Antonio Brown right now?

Jim Colony wouldn't go as far as to say JuJu is on the same track as Brown, but did say that it is a little thing that makes you pause for a second. Jim can’t help but wonder if this the very beginning, the very small first step to JuJu becoming more and more like Antonio Brown. 

Maybe it's an unfair dot to connect, being as JuJu can't control AB's actions. He's just merely teammates with him.

But, then again, maybe it's not. 

What do you think?
