Reports that Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster wants out of Pittsburgh are false.

The source? Smith-Schuster himself.

In response to Pat McAfee saying on his radio show that the star was looking to move, Smith-Schuster said the report was "completely 100% false."

McAfee later added that he was referencing a report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Gerry Dulac, who wrote that "Smith-Schuster would like to play in a major market where he could expand his off-field brand and burgeoning social-media presence."
