According to a report, JuJu Smith-Schuster is staying in Pittsburgh for at least one more year.
NFL Network’s Taylor Bisciotti reports the wide-receiver will take “a massive paycut to return to his home over larger offers from division rivals and Super Bowl contenders to accommodate Pittsburgh’s tough cap situation. JuJu is staying home.”
Smith-Schuster made the announcement somewhat official tweeting. “This is my home, they gonna need a wrecking ball to take me outta here! PITTSBURGH I LOVE YOU, LET’S GO!!!!!!”
The deal is reportedly worth $ 8 million and those better offers came from teams like the Ravens and Chiefs.
Reports say that the Ravens offered him $9 million with $4 million worth of incentives and the Chiefs offered $8 million with $3 million of incentives.
Aside from signing back in Pittsburgh for less money, Smith-Schuster becomes only the third wide receiver in Steelers modern history to sign a second contract (Hines Ward and Antonio Brown).
JuJu said countless times, he wanted to stay in Pittsburgh but the reality of the team's cap situation make it appear impossible. Well anything is possible I guess.
