After 5 seasons in Pittsburgh, Juju Smith Schuster is now playing with Patrick Mahomes in Kansas City. The young receiver recently signed a 1-year deal to play alongside Tyreek Hill and company.
In his 5 seasons with the Steelers, Juju Smith-Schuster had 323 receptions for 3,855 yards and 26 touchdowns. His best year by far was 2018 when he was team leader at receptions (111) and yards (1426) when he played No. 2 behind Antonio Brown. At the time, Brown was one of the best receivers in the NFL, so Smith-Schuster naturally took advantage of defenses that weren’t giving him full attention.
Since then, Smith-Schuster has been the Steelers’ No. 1 target and hasn’t fared well. He hasn’t had a 900 yard season in the last 3 years, but perhaps a bigger issue is that he hasn’t been able to start a full season as injuries have been a big problem. That’s partly why he’s not staying in Pittsburgh.
Regardless, Juju Smith-Schuster will be a Kansas City chief and he recently let fans know how excited he is about it.

Juju Smith-Schuster expresses happiness at playing for the Chiefs
The Chiefs recently tweeted a video of Juju Smith-Schuster saying “Just landed in KC. Let’s get it Chiefs Kingdom! It’s lit! Let’s Rock!”
Luckily for Chiefs fans, Juju Smith-Schuster will play behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce and will most certainly not be the focus of opposing defenses. As he showed in 2018, he can be very productive in these scenarios. Injuries are a concern but he will certainly work on that this season.
Everyone in Kansas City will be desperately hoping Smith-Schuster can stay on the field for a full season, because if he does, he’s sure to produce on this offense. Patrick Mahomes will have quite a bit of work ahead considering how the rest of the AFC West has dominated the offseason, but this signing has stayed a bit under the radar but can certainly be explosive.
