With the signing of the Chiefs' newest weapon JuJu Smith-Schuster to a one-year deal, many across the NFL community congratulated the former Steeler, including his new quarterback Patrick Mahomes. While folks across the media discussed what they will expect out of Smith-Schuster and the rest of the offense next season, many others on social media wondered if Smith-Schuster and his QBs younger brother Jackson Mahomes would be open to collab on TikTok.
The Pro Bowl receiver signed with the franchise Friday evening after five seasons in Pittsburgh and was immediately met with jokes about him and the younger Mahomes teaming up on the popular social media app. Similar to Mahomes, JuJu also has a large following on TikTok, facing a similar amount of backlash and criticism for his use of the app.
Only a few hours after Smith-Schuster's signing, Jackson took to his Instagram to share with his followers that he is all in on the idea of working with his big brother's newest target.
“Now we have to collab..,” Jackson wrote on his Instagram story in response to the Smith-Schuster signing.
Jackson, including his brother's now-wife Brittany Matthews, have been at the center of controversy on social media, mainly due to their vivacious personalities during gameday. In fact, one local KC bar called out Jackson for being "obnoxious" while at the bar and decided to pin a later in response to Mahomes calling their servers "terrible" and "rude."
While there would surely be a lot of money to be made if the two were to ever collaborate, Smith-Schuster will likely be more focused on returning from injury and reemerging himself as one of the NFL's top receivers alongside two of the best pass-catchers in the league Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.
The veteran receiver has been on quite the slump ever since his 2018 campaign. Smith-Schuster has had three straight underperforming seasons which included suffering a shoulder injury in 2021 that limited him to only five games.
The 25-year-old recorded 15 receptions for 129 yards through his first five games prior to the injury in October.
