While Not A Fan Of New Kickoff Rules, JuJu Expects To Retain Job In 2018

After returning nine kickoffs during his rookie season for a team-high 240 yards and a touchdown, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster revealed on Wednesday that he expects to retain that job in 2018.

“Yeah, for sure, well, I mean, I don’t know about the new rules,” Smith-Schuster said Wednesday afternoon after being asked if he’ll be the team’s kickoff returner in 2018. “It’s pretty scary but, yeah, something I’ll be doing.”

The second-year wide receiver out of USC was then asked to explain what it is about the new kickoff rules that makes the job that much more scarier now.
