Jackson Mahomes wants to do TikTok ‘collaboration’ with new Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Kansas City Chiefs fans may need to brace themselves as Jackson Mahomes and newly signed wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster could join forces to do a TikTok “collaboration” this season.

Smith-Schuster signed a one-year, $10.75 million contract with the Chiefs last week to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes, Jackson’s older brother.

Smith-Schuster and Jackson are arguably the most famous TikTok stars in the NFL world, and the younger brother typically posts videos from the sidelines and in the stands during games.

Jackson appeared to be okay with the signing, according to a recent Instagram Story he posted.

“Now we have to collaborate…” Jackson wrote after the signing.

Jackson Mahomes – one of his brother’s biggest supporters – is usually seen on the sidelines or in a suite with Brittany Matthews, his brother’s now wife, as they cheer on the Chiefs.

During a game against the Baltimore Ravens last September, Jackson was seen on video throwing a water bottle at a jubilant Ravens fan who yelled at him.

He reacted to the incident on Twitter saying “they were thirsty”.

Smith-Schuster has come under fire for posting TikTok videos of himself doing viral dances on opponents’ courts during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, prompting questions about his focus.

Social media was quick to react to news of TikTok’s potential “collaboration”.

Smith-Schuster spent five years with the Steelers after the team selected him 62nd overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. He had a stellar season in 2018, catching 111 passes for 1,426 yards, but didn’t has failed to match that production since. Smith-Schuster underwent shoulder surgery last October.

“I think for me, I love Pittsburgh. The fanbase is amazing there. They’ve had me for about five years and obviously this year, even though I played my last game with Pittsburgh at Arrowhead and started my new season at Arrowhead, it’s going to be amazing,” he said, via a team transcript. “I hear the fan base is amazing so I can’t wait to embrace them.”
