The Facts: Smith-Schuster has only been in the league for two years, but he's seen a lot, thanks to the good and bad of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The wide receiver has had the privilege of playing alongside Le'Veon Bell, Ben Roethlisberger and especially Antonio Brown. That's brought a lot of drama into his life, perhaps too much, even for the ham that Smith-Schuster is. The same drama might tear apart his beloved team. "Obviously it's tough, situations like that, where you can't control," Smith-Schuster said. "For me, it's more so. Let's keep the guys on the team and let's win the Super Bowl. Let's stop all the bull----."
Diehards Line:Smith-Schuster added: "I really don't have control of that. In my dream world, what would I have? I would have Le'Veon Bell at running back with James Conner. I'd have A.B. stay on the other side. And win the Super Bowl with the guys that we have, the guys that we keep. ..." The Steelers missed the playoffs despite owning a 7-2-1 record after 10 games, falling apart late in the season, save for a then-crucial win over the New England Patriots in December. Losses in winnable games ultimately sunk them, though, in a campaign that didn't include Bell due to a contract dispute. That campaign also didn't include Brown in Week 17 due to the since-publicized drama in the lead-up to Pittsburgh's eventual win over Cincinnati. Now it appears as though two of the Steelers' most important players could be headed elsewhere. And Smith-Schuster might be in for an even more prominent role.
