Pittsburgh Steelers pending free agent star WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been the hot topic of discussion for Steeler fans with the NFL free agency period looming. After not receiving the franchise tag (as expected), and Pittsburgh’s tough cap situation, Smith-Schuster is set to become a free agent that can sign anywhere he chooses once the new league year begins on March 17th. It was known that a deal that would lock up one of Pittsburgh’s most beloved players was going to be complicated despite JuJu claiming he’d love to remain a Steeler on the Yinzhers Podcast last month.
However, earlier today, JuJu might’ve given Steeler Nation some insight on what he’s expecting in free agency this coming week. Across social media, he penned the following message attached with a few photos during his time here:
“No matter what happens this week in free agency, if I’m back or if I’m somewhere else, just know that I will never see Pittsburgh as just 4 years of my life, but a part of who I am. I’ll always carry that tough, blue collar spirit for the rest of my life. I LOVE YOU PITTSBURGH #412 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️”
Now of course he did mention “if I’m back”, but it’s certainly fair to speculate if this was Smith-Schuster prepping his fans here in Pittsburgh for a farewell.
We will continue to update fans on the situation as it unfolds. But regardless of what happens, we wish JuJu Smith-Schuster the best of luck with a long, happy, healthy, and successful career.
