What would a contract extension for JuJu Smith-Schuster look like?

Just check his social media, he keeps alluding to that. However, that could just be a game with him trying to leverage some sort of reaction from the fans to hopefully get a contract offer to stay. I like JuJu. I disagree with some of the things he’s been doing to incite reactions out of other players.


However, I would really like to see him staying in Pittsburgh. I think to that, JuJu will be offered a 4 year $48,000,000 contract from the Steelers. With about $30,000,000 at signing. Which would be a really fair contract for JuJu in my opinion. However, other teams would definitely pay more. This would be a contract which would give JuJu a really good bonus for his services thus far.



JuJu has a chance to be a Steelers Legend. So far, the players who have left the Steelers as of late haven’t performed too well. See Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. However, both are on the road for a Super Bowl with other teams.


However, anyway, statistically they have both gone down hill. So, I think JuJu would be making the best decision for his career to stay here and potentially get better and better. The Steelers would put him on track to reach the Hall of Fame.


The Steelers are great at drafting receivers. However, JuJu still has been one of my favorites and I would love him to stay. From the early beginnings as his time as a Steeler and from the big hit to Vontaze Burfict which was a game I personally attended. I have always liked JuJu and I will be upset to see him go to a different team. However, I would know he secured the bag and I can make peace with that.


However, I think JuJu might decide to opt to be a Steeler for a couple more years. I just have a feeling. He seems to really love the city. Other than that Primanti Bros. However, there are plenty of other establishments for him to go and enjoy.
