JuJu Smith-Schuster Responds To Report He ‘Would Like To Play In A Major Market’ To Expand His Brand (TWEET)
Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is among the most significant names heading into the free agency market this offseason.
After posting a career-high nine touchdown receptions in 2020, Smith-Schuster followed that up with a 13-catch, 157-yard performance in the Steelers’ postseason loss against the Cleveland Browns.
On Wednesday, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Gerry Dulac claimed sources in saying that “Smith-Schuster would like to play in a major market where he could expand his off-field brand and burgeoning social-media presence”.
Pat McAfee discussed it on his show, saying “JuJu came out and said he wants to play in a major market to build his brand”, McAfee said. “Allegedly”, he quickly added, “these are leaks coming”.
Smith-Schuster saw that report and quickly dispelled it, saying, “sources tell me this is completely 100% false lol”.
JuJu’s 2020 campaign ended on a sour note as it was marred in controversy of him dancing on logos for Tik Tok and then him trash-talking the Browns before they came into Heinz Field and beat them.
He would love to stay in Pittsburgh, but we’ll have to wait to see if the feeling is mutual.
