Fans of the Kansas City Chiefs may need to brace themselves, as Jackson Mahomes and newly signed wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster may be joining forces this season to do a TikTok “collab.”

Smith-Schuster signed a $10.75 million one-year deal with the Chiefs last week to catch passes from Jackson’s older brother Patrick Mahomes.

Both Smith-Schuster and Jackson are arguably the NFL’s most famous TikTok stars, and the younger brother usually posts videos from the sidelines and in the stands during matches.

Jackson appeared to be on board with the signing, according to a recent Instagram story he posted.

“Now we have to work together…” Jackson wrote after the signing.

One of his brother’s biggest supporters, Jackson Mahomes is usually seen on the sidelines or in a suite with his brother’s now-wife Brittany Matthews, cheering on the Chiefs.

During a game against the Baltimore Ravens last September, Jackson was seen on video throwing a water bottle at a beaming Ravens fan who had yelled at him.

He responded to the incident on Twitter, saying “they were thirsty.”

Smith-Schuster has been criticized for posting TikTok videos of him doing viral dances on opponents’ fields during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, raising questions about where his focus was.
