“For me, it’s more so like, let’s keep the guys on the team and win the Super Bowl.”
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster just wants everyone to get along.
During a discussion with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on the “RapSheet and Friends” podcast, Smith-Schuster spoke about his dream scenario for the Steelers offense, which includes both Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown remaining in the black and gold.
“In my dream world … I would have Le’Veon Bell as the running back with James Conner. I’d have AB stay on the other side. We’d win the Super Bowl with the guys that we have, the guys that we keep. Obviously it’s tough, situations like where you can’t control—Art Rooney and Mike Tomlin with that situation. For me, it’s more so like, let’s keep the guys on the team and win the Super Bowl. Let’s stop all the bullshit.”
Of course, it’s a near lock that Le’Veon Bell won’t be with the Steelers next season, and it appears that Antonio Brown is hoping he’ll be following Bell out the door.
Brown was inactive for the Steelers’ final game of the season against the Cincinnati Bengals, as Pittsburgh picked up a 16-13 victory but missed out on the playoffs with a 9-6-1 record. Since then, AB has openly expressed a desire to play for the San Francisco 49ers despite the fact he is under contract with the Steelers through 2021.
