Throughout his NFL career, JuJu Smith-Schuster has only ever played with Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, spending the first five years of his career with Ben Roethlisberger on the Pittsburgh Steelers before joining Patrick Mahomes on the Kansas City Chiefs last year. Now, he’ll have a different task of helping a young quarterback break into the league, but it sounds like he’s excited about it.
JuJu Smith-Schuster signed with the New England Patriots earlier this month, and during an interview with 98.5 The Sports Hub this week, he had some very kind things to say about his new quarterback, Mac Jones.
“I have not thrown with Mac yet. But just watching film and just watching him, that dude loves, breathes New England,” Smith-Schuster said on 98.5 The Sports Hub, via MassLive.com. “He’s the definition of a Patriot. Even in my short time, my 24 hours of being in New England, he was there, constantly working out with the guys, just getting after it, getting in the books. I mean, he’s a rookie Pro Bowler. So they do have a lot of potential and I can’t wait to get right with him.”
We’ll have to see how the two are able to perform together this upcoming season.
