JuJu Smith-Schuster sends one other message that he’s more likely to go away the Pittsburgh Steelers
PITTSBURGH – At this point, it’s no surprise that JuJu Smith-Schuster is pondering where he’s going next in the NFL. The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver jumped on Twitch (again), leaving a pretty clear message to fans.
On Wednesday night, Smith-Schuster played Fornite live while he tried on other uniforms for his character. A scenario that he has done in the past. The wideout interacted with fans to give them a glimpse into the future and to show the NFL market which teams they are interested in.
The difference was the title of his live stream. While Smith-Schuster was preparing a Miami Dolphins jersey for the game, he flocked to Fornite under the headline “March 17, FREE MAN …”
It’s no secret that the Steelers will not be able to afford Smith cobblers in the open market. Pittsburgh is roughly $ 5 million below the salary cap, and there are a few more roster moves available to make room for the cap. However, their 20 free agents make it difficult to sign just one player like Smith-Schuster.
Perhaps not a direct attack on the Steelers, but another prime example of how Smith-Schuster may be overdoing his social media presence. And probably not the best way to ask Pittsburgh to reconsider where their money is going this off-season.
