The man formerly known as Chad Ochocinco went one-on-one with Antonio Brown, and you have to see what took place.

There is no questioning the route running and footwork skills of Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown. He is considered the best in the game today, but before Brown was dominating defensive backs, the man who wore the crown of ‘best footwork’ was none other than long-time Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Johnson, also known as Chad Ochocinco.

With both players coming from Miami, Florida, the two have had a bond since Brown starting to come into his own in 2013. Since then, the two have worked out together, and trained in the offseason together.

The two met up again recently, and Brown and Johnson went head-to-head, with the 39 year-old Johnson acting as a defensive back. To say Brown gets the best of him might be an understatement.

Take a look for yourself:

To be fair, Brown should torch Johnson. Johnson was never a defensive back in the NFL, but was the one making cornerbacks look silly on a regular basis. Although Steelers fans will smile seeing their guy get the best of a former Bengal, I consider this more along the lines of greatness recognizing greatness, because if you watched Johnson in his prime, he was just that — great.

If you follow Brown on social media, then you have seen just how hard the receiver is working this offseason. Seems more determined than ever to do his part in bringing a 7th Lombardi trophy back to the Steel City.
