JuJu Smith-Schuster seemed to say a farewell to Pittsburgh yesterday when he made a social media post saying no matter what happens this week, he'll never see Pittsburgh as just four years of his life, but a part of who he is.

The Steelers currently have around just $5 million in salary-cap space and Smith-Schuster should command $16 million per year annually on the open market. The finances just don't match up for the Steelers to pay Smith-Schuster that kind of money. He surely will get offered that type of money by other teams when he officially becomes an unrestricted free agent on March 17 at 4 p.m. EST.


According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, Smith-Schuster has told teammates he is likely to sign elsewhere in free agency.

The fact that Smith-Schuster has already told teammates that he's on his way out is not surprising at all, as I'm sure the Steelers offered something way below $16 million per year or just straight up told him we don't have the money to pay you. It's the tough part of the business.
