  1. There’s no reason for the Steelers to give him anything close market value, and there’s no reason for him to take less. It’s not a good fit for either party at this point.

  2. wow the guys been playing for three years and he talks about his “legacy” already? Go back to dancing on teams logos dude that’s your legacy……

  3. I’m a big Juju fan, but he can’t expect WR1 money when he is playing the slot. Unfortunately I think he is done in Pittsburgh unless he’s willing to accept a modest contract.

  4. I don’t see them keeping him, especially with Claypool emerging as a star. Sure, JuJu caught 97 passes but only averaged 8.6 yards per catch. Add to that his propensity to act like a clown tells me the only thing Pittsburgh may offer him is a bus ticket out of town.

  5. I don’t know what #1 money is. I would guess his lower end will be around $13 mil/ year. Indy or the Jets would shuck out that in a heartbeat. But it will probably be higher. T.Y. Hilton and Alshon Jeffrey both made over $14 mil last year. Elite receivers look for close to $20 mil now.

  6. There’s no fit here unless Juju is willing to take 60% of his market value which I see projected at $17M. He’s not worth that, and certainly not to the Steelers who have other good young options at WR.

  7. Remeber when this guy was pretty likeable? seems like 20 years ago, now total diva and very cutworthy. Sad really

  8. He is immature and attention-hungry. He wants too much money, is not a #1 WR but some clown-team w/ cap room will offer too much. Go form your “legacy” somewhere else, JuJu.
