The move comes after a disappointing first taste of free agency for Smith-Schuster this past spring. Expecting to cash in big, he settled and re-signed with Pittsburgh on a one-year, $8 million deal after encountering a poor market for wide receivers.
Smith-Schuster is planning to re-enter free agency next offseason with a more robust salary cap at clubs’ disposal, and he will have new representatives negotiating on his behalf this time around.
Already one of the most recognizable brands in the NFL at the age of just 24, Smith-Schuster is a big addition for the agency. For the Steelers wideout, Wasserman provides him a better opportunity to further grow that brand and garner additional endorsement opportunities and avenues for content creation off the field.
Founded in 1998, Wasserman is one of the largest sports management agencies in the world.
The agency already boasts a roster full of NFL stars, including New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper and Steelers rookie running back Najee Harris.
Smith-Schuster was previously represented by Roc Nation Sports.
