Former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who is now a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, took to social media on Friday to comment on the new contract that Diontae Johnson received this week.

Johnson signed a new three-year deal worth $39.5 million with the Steelers on Thursday. He’s the latest wide receiver to earn a lucrative extension this offseason (I’m pretty sure 2022 will always be known as the summer of the wide receiver).

At one time, Smith-Schuster looked like he was destined for a big contract with Pittsburgh. But he couldn’t replicate the success he had during the 2018 season. As a result, his time with the Steelers ended after the 2021 season. Smith-Schuster signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs this offseason.

It would be easy to understand if Smith-Schuster was bitter about Johnson’s deal with the Steelers. But that’s not the case at all. Smith-Schuster actually sent a congrats message to Johnson via Instagram this week, writing “Get paid brother” over a photo of his former teammate.

It looks like Smith-Schuster is beyond happy for Johnson. Wide receivers in the NFL clearly stick together. They’re a competitive bunch, but they also root for each other.

Good on JuJu for showing some love for his former teammate, even though Johnson got the deal that Smith-Schuster probably would’ve loved to have had.
