Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster on free agency: ‘I wish I was Pittsburgh for life’
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Ju Ju Smith Schuster will enter free agency this offseason, but “hopes” to return to black and gold next season. Smith-Schuster released a statement on social media expressing her wishes for the future.
“I’ve said it before and I have the same position: I would like to be Pittsburgh for life. I hope we can make it happen this offseason and I want to be part of this franchise’s return to glory. This n It’s not a question of if, but when, and I hope I’ll wear the black and gold, celebrating a Super Bowl with these fans, when it happens.”
Smith-Schuster signed a one-year contract with Pittsburgh last offseason. He suffered a shoulder injury in Week 5, but returned for a playoff appearance against the Kansas City Chiefs. He caught five receptions for 26 yards in Sunday’s loss.
“Honestly, it would be a blessing (to stay in Pittsburgh),” he said at a press conference after Sunday’s playoff game.
“I love the city, I love the fans. I love coach (Mike) Tomlin. I love the coaches and my teammates, the players, everyone from the media side to the training hall “It’s amazing. My career here has been amazing. It would be nice to stay here and play with these guys and the same coaches. It would be nice to stay another four years.”
Smith-Schuster was drafted No. 67 in the 2017 NFL Draft out of USC.
