Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has incredible reaction to $1 million Super Bowl win bonus: ‘Send the Cash App’

When JuJu Smith-Schuster joined the Chiefs in free agency last season, it was obviously with the assumption he had a chance to win a Super Bowl. But it doesn’t seem like he fully knew what winning a Super Bowl actually meant for him.

Smith-Schuster, who put up a quietly solid stat line in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl 57 win over the Eagles, was thrilled to learn he was due a payday for his role in a Super Bowl win.

Smith-Schuster needed to play half of the Chiefs’ offensive snaps and they had to win to lock in the payday. He himself seemed surprised to find out he was a million dollars richer.

In fact, the receiver didn’t even really have words. He just wanted to celebrate with the team at the desk.

No one seemed to be having a better time after the game than Smith-Schuster, who just wanted to celebrate with everyone around him after the win.

Smith-Schuster’s reaction to the bonus was incredible, as he told the team that told him the news to “send the Cash App, send the Cash App man.”

Smith-Schuster, in reality, almost certainly knew about this coming in — in fact it was a storyline heading into the game. He signed an incentive-heavy contract, which had a $3.25 million base with a lot of escalators. Those included $1.5 million for 65 receptions (check), $1.5 million for 900 receiving yards (check), $1.5 million for playing 65 percent of the Chiefs’ offensive snaps (check), and $1 million for winning the Super Bowl while playing 50 percent or more snaps.

The only two incentives Smith-Schuster missed out on, in fact, were making the Pro Bowl and playing 50 percent of snaps in the AFC Championship Game.

All of this to say, Smith-Schuster bet on himself, and he won big alongside the Chiefs.
