JuJu Smith-Schuster proclaims he is ready to be the Steelers’ No. 1 receiver moving forward

JuJu Smith-Schuster is ready to make people say, “Antonio who?” in 2019.

The loss of Antonio Brown is far from an ‘easy fix’ for the Pittsburgh Steelers moving forward. The loss of Brown immediately makes the wide receiver position sky rocket up the team needs list.

But don’t tell JuJu Smith-Schuster he can’t be the Pittsburgh Steelers’ No. 1 receiver moving forward. In fact, Smith-Schuster sent this message out on all of his social media platforms. The message is simple, yet powerful:

“I’m ready...”

If that weren’t enough, Smith-Schuster sent out a video to remind fans everywhere he is more than capable of picking up the slack left behind by Brown.

Just as Brown timed his social media posts with things like Mike Tomlin’s end of the year press conference, don’t think Smith-Schuster isn’t doing the same exact thing with the news of Brown being traded to the Raiders.

Brown wants to tout being a member of the silver-and-black? Smith-Schuster is here to remind fans of the black-and-gold he is here, and he is ready to do work.

Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest news and notes as this story continues to unfold, as well as other news and notes surrounding the Steelers throughout what is shaping up to be a busy offseason.
