The Kansas City Chiefs signed JuJu Smith Schuster, wide receiver, to a $10.75 million one-year contract earlier this offseason. According to reports, the team agreed to amend Smith-Schuster’s contract on Friday.
ESPN’s Field Yates reports that Smith-Schuster’s per-game roster bonuses have been increased by the Chiefs from $30,000 to $60,000.
Smith-Schuster could earn an additional $510,000 from game bonuses. This is a great incentive for Smith-Schuster, a former USC star.
Smith-Schuster was injured and missed several games last year. Although Smith-Schuster is currently recovering from a sore leg, the Chiefs anticipate that the veteran wideout will be available for Week 1.
The Chiefs agreed to an amended contract for WR JuJu Smith-Schuster that increases his per-game roster bonus from $30K to $60K, per source.
Smith-Schuster can now earn an extra $510K via per-game bonuses this year.
Nice touch by the Chiefs to give him a chance for more upside.

Smith-Schuster will have to do a lot this season for the Chiefs, especially considering that the offense is trying replace Tyreek Hill.
Smith-Schuster could be back to his 2018 form and have a great year for the Chiefs. Then, the bank will break in free agency next season.
Smith-Schuster caught just 15 passes for 129 yards in five games last season. Chiefs hope that Smith-Schuster, a former second-round selection, will see a significant change in scenery.
