The signing comes a day after the Las Vegas Raiders pulled off a stunning trade with the Green Bay Packers for wideout Davante Adams, as the AFC West continues to stockpile talent.
Speaking with NFL media, Smith-Schuster said, “I am going to play with a future Hall of Fame quarterback. My goal as a player is to win, so I’m going to Kansas City with the hopes of winning a Super Bowl.â
The 25-year-old was limited to five games in 2021 due to a dislocated shoulder, ending the regular season with 15 catches for 129 scoreless yards.
Spending his first five years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Smith-Schuster’s best season came in 2018 when he tallied 111 catches for 1,426 yards and seven touchdowns. However, he has failed to reach the 1,000-yard mark since.
Smith-Schuster should settle in as the number-three option in KC’s passing game behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, rendering him a WR3/4 for upcoming fantasy drafts.
FanDuel Sportsbook has the Chiefs holding the third-best Super Bowl odds at +850.
