Juju Smith-Schuster can save some of his NFL money, after agreeing to a huge deal to become a brand ambassador for an Esports company.

Smith-Schuster has agreed to a six-figure endorsement deal with HyperX, “the gaming division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc, which focuses on developing headsets, keyboards, mice and USB flash drives,” for gamers, according to Darren Heitner of Forbes.com.

Besides the nice check, the 21-year-old wide receiver will “exclusively use HyperX headsets during his gaming sessions” and will include “HyperX branding on his live streams, participation in HyperX marketing campaigns and appearances at HyperX fan events.”
“I think eSports are becoming a bigger game just because it’s worldwide,” he told Jason Nawara of Uproxx.com in February. “You have a lot of these teams where people are involved from all different countries, whereas the NFL is pretty much just the United States. I think that it will get there but I don’t think it will get to the point of the NFL level.”
JuJu is coming off a rookie season in which he caught 58 passes for 917 yards and seven touchdowns.
