Patriots Land A Top Receiver With Juju Smith-Schuster Signing In Free Agency

The New England Patriots wasted no time replacing Jacoby Meyers. They signed WR JuJu Smith-Schuster, formerly of the Chiefs, to a three-year, $33 million contract.

The Pats lost Jakobi Meyers to a nearly identical contract from the Raiders. Smith-Schuster will be a natural replacement for Meyers, who soaked up targets over the middle of the field and played both slot and outside receiver. Coming off a 933-yard season with the Chiefs, JuJu was bound to get some suitors on the open market. Like New England before them, Kansas City is now in need of a replacement for its outgoing receiving class.
