Chiefs' JuJu Smith-Schuster has chance to hit $1 million incentive in Super Bowl

JuJu Smith-Schuster will hit a $1 million incentive if the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles and he plays in at least half of the Chiefs' offensive snaps, according to Pro Football Talk. In free agency, the Chiefs signed Smith-Schuster to a one-year deal.

Initially, it was believed that Smith-Schuster signed a one-year, $10.75 million deal. Later, it was reported that Smith-Schuster was guaranteed to earn $3.25 and the rest was in incentives. Since Smith-Schuster is enjoying a good season and a strong run with the Chiefs, he has almost hit on every incentive that was put in his contract.

This Sunday, he will be hoping to help the Chiefs win the Super Bowl and also earn himself an additional million.

This season, Smith-Schuster has had 78 catches on 101 targets. On the season, Smith-Schuster has 933 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

When the Chiefs lost Tyreek Hill in free agency, they needed their wide receiver group to step up their game. The Chiefs' wide receivers have answered the call and Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is happy for his team but also for Hill.

“Nobody’s happier for Tyreek than I am. He made a lot of money and he gained a lot of yards. He had a great year, Pro Bowl player, All-Pro player, but on the other hand I’m proud of our guys for the job they’ve done.

We had a lot of new faces in there. With the exception of Mecole [Hardman], most of the guys were new guys, and I thought they stepped up. I was really proud of the way Pat [Mahomes] and [Travis] Kelce brought the guys into the mix, welcomed them in, worked with them and helped teach them.

Pat Mahomes is a pretty good quarterback, so we didn’t lose Pat Mahomes, that was a good thing. He makes those guys look good in a lot of ways and they help make him look good, too, so it’s a good relationship," Reid said.
