Come next season, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is all set to return to the AFC North. In his free agency, several teams wanted to try and snatch him away, including defending AFC champions the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to Smith-Schuster, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was going above and beyond to try and get him to sign with the AFC West organization.

Per Smith-Schuster, Reid called him multiple times and would even send him photos of the Lombardi Trophy to remind him of Kansas City winning it all back in 2019. The team nearly repeated as champs this campaign, but Tampa Bay and Tom Brady spoiled that party.

Come next season, the Chiefs will be in prime position to once again compete for a Super Bowl triumph. The same can be said for the Steelers, who will welcome back Smith-Schuster. The wideout could have landed with Kansas City, but he ultimately decided he wants to keep playing at Heinz Field.
