JuJu Smith-Schuster jokes about players not going full speed in Pro Bowl
Players almost always take their foot off the gas and give less than 100 percent effort during the Pro Bowl, but Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster insists he would have been the exception if he was invited to the event.
While watching the Pro Bowl on Sunday, Smith-Schuster joked about players not running full speed. The rookie said they should have stayed home and let him take their spot.
If y’all didn’t actually wanna play in the pro bowl you could’ve let me know! I’d be in that full speed!

Smith-Schuster had a great first season in Pittsburgh, catching 58 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns. He should have plenty of Pro Bowls in his future if he continues to play like that, and he has already joked about bringing some of his trademark touchdown celebrations to the all-star game. If and when he is invited to a Pro Bowl, we’ll see if he changes his mind about going hard in an exhibition game.
