Andy Reid is doing his best to retool for another deep playoff run on the back of franchise QB Patrick Mahomes. That caused him to go after wide receiver JuJu-Smith Schuster.
Reid was trying to convince the Pittsburgh Steelers WR to join the Chiefs in the best way he could by using a hilarious tactic.
According to Smith-Schuster during an appearance on the Michael Irvin podcast, Reid was sending some spicy text messages to entice the WR to the Super Bowl contender.
“SCHUSTER: It would’ve been KC. […] Andy Reid was just calling me, he was sending me Lombardi trophy pictures constantly, and we had a good talk. So it would’ve been KC after the Steelers.
“IRVIN: Coach Reid was sending you Lombardi trophies?
“SCHUSTER: Yeah, pictures of the Lombardi [laughs] like, texting it to me while I was trying to make a decision. I have so much respect for him and his team.
“IRVIN: Andy one of the best, man.”
Smith-Schuster ended up turning them down and signing a one-year deal with the Steelers for $8 million.
