PITTSBURGH — Has Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster played his last game as a member of the team?
Former NFL punter and Plum native Pat McAfee said on his show that Smith-Schuster wants to “play in a major market to build his brand.”
However, Smith-Schuster posted on his Twitter that he’s proud to play in Pittsburgh and wants to continue playing here.
He also responded to McAfee’s comments and said, “Sources tell me this is completely 100% false.”
What Smith-Schuster wants and what might happen remain to be seen however. The Steelers are some $25 million over the salary cap limit already ahead of next year’s season. Plus, the team has 19 unrestricted free agents, including Bud Dupree, Smith-Schuster, Alejandro Villanueva, Cam Sutton, James Conner, Zach Banner and more.
