1 - Juju Smith-Schuster
Like Meyers, Smith-Schuster may very well end up re-signing with his current team, the Kansas City Chiefs. But if he’s out there, Ossenfort needs to make a bid before anyone else.
Smith-Schuster has been a household name since he entered the NFL, and it doesn’t matter if he’s played in Pittsburgh or Kansas City, the former USC product can produce wherever he goes.
This past season, he hauled in 78 catches and 3 scores. In 2018, he hit triple-digits with 111 receptions, and followed that performance up after an injury-riddled 2019 season with 97 catches in 2020.
Overall, Smith-Schuster has had his fair share of injury concerns. But when healthy, he is one of the better receivers in the NFL. No, he’s not all-world, but Smith-Schuster has enough talent to be a long-term WR1 in this league.
If any name has the highest likelihood of securing a long-term deal on this list, it’s him. But as mentioned, the Chiefs may want to bring him back for yet another Super Bowl run.
