New Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster showed off his new No. 9 jersey to all his new TikTok followers in Kansas City.
JuJu Smith-Schuster has officially made it to Kansas City, according to his TikTok account.
Almost a week after he agreed to join the Chiefs as a free agent, the wide receiver posted a TikTok featuring his new jersey.
And of course, because it’s TikTok, he threw in a little dance.
JuJu Smith-Schuster is all about the Chiefs on social media
Smith-Schuster has a tendency to split opinions. Some find his social media antics to be annoying or cringe (just ready those Twitter replies for a sample of that). Others embrace his fun-loving attitude.
Chiefs fans will have to figure out where they stand over the coming months as they get to know the receiver.
One thing is clear: Smith-Schuster is excited to get to work with his new team. His social media profile pictures have all been changed to feature KC’s logo and his Twitter banner now displays his new Chiefs jersey featuring his nameplate.
There will definitely be dancing, but there will also be unrelenting effort on the field. He’ll need it considering his role just got ramped up with the trade of Tyreek Hill.
Smith-Schuster burst onto the scene as a rookie with 917 yards and seven touchdowns. He was at his best in 2018, picking up a Pro Bowl nod with 1,426 yards and seven touchdowns.
However, over the last three years, he has struggled to stay healthy and his productivity has fallen.
Instead of leaving the Steelers in free agency after the 2020 season, he signed a one-year deal to stay in Pittsburgh and prove himself. Things didn’t go his way as he played just five games before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
Now he’s on another inventive-heavy prove-it deal with the Chiefs. He’s all-in. He’s dancing. The only thing left to do is to start catching passes and winning games.
