JuJu Smith-Schuster arrives at Gillette Stadium in Patriots attire
The future has officially arrived in New England, and he’s wearing Patriots attire for the very first time.
Newly-signed receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was at Gillette Stadium on Friday after agreeing to a three-year deal worth upwards of $33 million with the Patriots on Wednesday.
Smith-Schuster was a prominent playmaker for the Pittsburgh Steelers before signing a one-year, prove-it deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2022. He proved himself by helping them win a Super Bowl after losing Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins.
Smith-Schuster stepped into the leading receiver role and caught 78 passes for 933 yards and three touchdowns. It was a career resurgence for the former second-round draft pick out of USC.

The Patriots desperately needed the help at receiver after Jakobi Meyers left for the Las Vegas Raiders. Some would argue they still need help, even with his arrival.
Regardless, Smith-Schuster hopes to be an upgrade in a New England offense that could look drastically different in 2023.
