Pittsburgh Steelers’ wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster is no stranger to twitch streamers and being one of the best twitch channels from professional athletes on the platform, and he spends a big part of his free time playing video games, but he is also raking in some serious coin for being active on Amazon’s platform.
According to CBS Sports’ Chris Bengel, Smith-Schuster appeared on popular streamer THump’s channel during the Week 14 matchup between the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys, playing Fortnite, and admitted that he had received $100,000 for participating in the Thursday Night Football stream.
“I did a stream yesterday, with TimTheTatMan, or like two days ago, we watched the Cowboys game and I got paid $100K for that,” Smith-Schuster said.
“Oh, I don’t know if you’re supposed to say that but it’s all good, it’s all good,” THump said.
Smith-Schuster has missed the past 3 games as he has been dealing with a knee injury, and it will be interesting to see if any punishment and/or penalties will come down on him due to receiving money from Twitch.
