PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is planning on taking advantage of Eagles rookie cornerback Brandon Boykin, and he’s got an interesting way of saying it.

“That’s the candy bar,” Brown said to Observer-Reporter.com. “He’s given up a lot of plays. Whoever gets that guy definitely has to take advantage.”

Though he did not directly respond, Boykin seemed amused by the comment on Twitter:

When asked what kind of candy bar Boykin is, Brown said he is a Snickers rather than a Milky Way. Perhaps that is a compliment, noting the difference between a Milky Way and a Snickers.

Here’s to hoping this starts a new trend in strange, food-based trash talk in sports.
