After five seasons with the Steelers, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster signed with the Chiefs this offseason. But he’s not ready to say he’s done playing in Pittsburgh.

Smith-Schuster made an appearance in Pittsburgh and said that he loved his time there and might return before his career is over.

I could see myself back here. Even today, this shows a lot, that I still have fans out here coming out to support me,” Smith-Schuster said, via KTKA.

Smith-Schuster signed autographs and took pictures with fans at a charity fundraiser and said he wanted the fans to know how much he appreciated them.

“It was just very important. It was huge to come back,” Smith-Schuster said. “I spent five years here, to come back to the city where I started my career. When you sign and go to a new team, you move so fast, that I literally picked up all my stuff and moved. I didn’t have time to say bye to the fans. What we’re doing today is really cool.”

Smith-Schuster signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs, so he’ll be a free agent in nine months, free to sign anywhere. Perhaps in Pittsburgh.

  1. It’s called a road game. Maybe he’s waiting for the Pirates to be good again or maybe there is some unreported legal matter that will require his appearance in court.

  2. Unfortunately for him Ben was at the end of his career when he played there. Now he will have one of the beat QB’s in the league throwing to him. Let’s see how he makes out.

  3. I am sure Veech will happily send him back to Pittsburgh in exchange for a low round draft pick…..

  4. Nice of him to say all the right things while visiting Pittsburgh. He better ball out in KC if he wants a good contract from anyone next year.

  5. I don’t think so. You already said that what Pittsburgh was offering is not what you were wanting.

  6. Could happen. Steeler fans like JuJu. He just needed to see the world before he realized how good he had it.

  7. Makes me wonder if he’s already stuck behind Hardman, a couple rookies, Gordon and MVS…. There’s a reason he signed a 1 year prove it deal…. Maybe he already see the writing on the wall in KC.

  8. The only place I see him back, is on Tic Tok. He needs to prioritize. There are plenty of Steelers fans that were not too disappointed he was gone.
