Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had a good reason to buy a ton of Mega Millions tickets. Should he win, he could help the Steelers return Le Veve Bell with the massive contract he sought.
JuJu Smith-Schuster bought more than 100 Mega Millions tickets this week. When his interview ended, he said, "I tried to win it so we could get Le Veon back, it did not work."

As Smith-Schuster mentioned, his plan failed. Despite purchasing these tickets, Smith-Schuster did not win the Mega Millions jackpot.
Bell did not report as expected in the team's Bye week to the Steelers. He continues to hold a long-term contract. Bell has not yet signed his franchise tag tender from the club. The Steelers have gone 3-2-1 without him.
James Conner has produced some strong games as he fills in for Bell. Over six weeks Conner has scored seven touchdowns on 453 yard rushing.
Smith-Schuster has also taken some sleep with Bell. The college wideout has trailed in 42 catches for 561 yards and two touchdowns. He has gone over 100 yards and has played four of the team's six games this season.
