Rookie WR Johnson paying no heed to Antonio Brown mentions

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Diontae Johnson understands parallels will be drawn between himself and former Steelers star Antonio Brown. The third-round pick, however, is focused on forging his own path.

The comparisons and serendipitous circumstances that link the two are almost too conspicuous to believe. But this "D.J." isn't actively going out of his way to be the next "AB."

As he walked off the field after completing his first official on-field NFL practice session, Johnson was predictably asked to give his thoughts about the ubiquitous comparisons between him and the perennial All-Pro receiver now with Oakland.
