We already know the drama that surrounded Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers during what was an all-around disappointing season for the team.
It led to the exodus of All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown after a late-season spat with Big Ben. Meanwhile, fellow star playmaker Le’Veon Bell departed in free agency.
Keeping rather quiet during this whole soap opera, stud young receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster just took to social media to throw supporting behind his quarterback.
“I was so blessed to enter the league and play with a Hall of Fame QB as a 20-year old. Ben has taught me so much, he’s a true Leader and I can’t wait to rock with my guy this season,” Smith-Schuster wrote.
There’s certainly been a debate about who was to blame for last season’s drama. Brown acted the part of a child by forcing a trade to the Oakland Raiders. On the other hand, Big Ben has kept quiet.
Even then, there’s suggestions that Roethlisberger doesn’t necessarily get along with his teammates. JuJu is out here to say otherwise.
A Pro Bowler this last season Smith-Schuster takes over as Pittsburgh’s No. 1 receiver. He tallied 111 receptions for 1,426 as a sophomore in 2018.
