JuJu Smith-Schuster is a popular name in the free-agent market this year. He may have just given a hint about his favorite landing spot.
On Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver said that he is “most likely” to go into free agency. JuJu also spoke out about the possibility of playing with Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
He’s a great quarterback. It would be great to catch balls from him in such a facility. I would love to catch balls from him in a facility like this.
Smith-Schuster and Prescott, NFL ambassadors for 7-Eleven, were both present at today’s event.

JuJu was kind enough to praise Prescott, but it seems that the 25-year old wideout would prefer to remain in Pittsburgh if given the chance.
“Honestly, it would be a blessing,” Smith-Schuster said about re-signing with the Steelers just a few weeks back, per AllSteelers.com. “I love the city; I love the fans. I love Coach Tomlin. I love the coaches and my teammates, players, everyone from the media side to the training room. It’s been unbelievable. My career here has been amazing. It would be nice to stay here and play with these guys and the same coaches. It would be nice to stay for another four years.”
JuJu shared an Instagram story earlier this week with the caption “It’s been real, Pitt!” — which indicated that his time with Steelers is over.
Smith-Schuster had signed a $8 million, one-year contract with the Steelers prior to the 2021 season. But after suffering a regular-season-ending shoulder injury, he was only able to suit up for five games.
