Steelers Sign Second-Round WR JuJu Smith-Schuster

The Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 rookie minicamp took place this past weekend with four of the team’s eight draft picks under contract. On Wednesday, the team announced that their second-round selection, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, has now signed his four-year rookie deal.

Smith-Schuster, who played his college football at USC, was the 62nd overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft. His four-year contract is expected to total out at around $4,195,778 and include a signing bonus of around $1,191,476, according to projections by Over the Cap.

During his three seasons at USC, Smith-Schuster recorded 213 receptions for 3,092 yards and 25 touchdowns. Only 20 years of age, he was the youngest player selected in this year’s draft.

With Smith-Schuster now under contract the Steelers will now focus on inking their other unsigned draft picks, outside linebacker T.J. Watt, cornerback Cameron Sutton and quarterback Joshua Dobbs.

    I see JuJu being a key cog in this offense sooner rather than later. Especially on tough third downs.

    At the latest in 2019, when both Coates and Bryant are likely to be gone and AB will be 31

    I see juju having a good season for a rookie.. 55 rec. 750yrds. 7tds. IMO.
    .he will be a nice 3rd WR.

    Coates will be lucky to make the final 53 this offseason.

    That’d be pretty amazing, all would be Steelers records. Let’s hope so, because if he’s putting up those kind of numbers, this offense is best in the league with what AB, Bryant, Bell, Green, Rogers et al will be doing too.

    I highly disagree but to each their own. Is there a Chance he doesn’t make it? Sure. Lucky to make the 53? Far from it. He would have to fall flat on his face plus still have his fingers mangled

  • Bobby hains

    I hear ya… But Steelers just released green bummer! He didn’t workout
