JuJu Smith-Schuster signs rookie deal with Steelers

The Steelers have their fifth member of the 2017 draft class under contract.

The team announced on Wednesday that second-round pick JuJu Smith-Schuster has agreed to a four-year contract with the team. Smith-Schuster was a second-round selection last month.

Smith-Schuster won’t turn 21 until November, which makes him one of the younger members of this year’s rookie class and likely gives the Steelers hope that he has a good deal of room to grow as a player in the coming years. He caught 213 passes for 3,092 yards and 25 touchdowns during his time at USC, so that growth will come with a pretty solid floor underneath it.

If Smith-Schuster does make a strong early impression, Sammie Coates‘ time as part of a receiver group that also includes Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Eli Rogers could come to an end.

    Can’t wait to see what Juju can do. Keep LG on the field and the team could average 30+ a game.
