PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania -- LeBron James to Pittsburgh? No, the Steel City isn't getting an NBA expansion franchise.

John Sherman "JuJu" Smith-Schuster, a wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, wants James to play football for the "black and gold."

In a post on Twitter Tuesday, Smith-Schuster wrote, "Announcing my official campaign to recruit @KingJames to the Pittsburgh Steelers for the 2018 season."

"LeBron has done everyting in the NBA," Smith-Schuster wrote. "He can be the best athlete EVER if he makes the move to the NFL and wins a Super Bowl with Steeler Nation... #LeBronToPittsburgh"

Smith-Schuster followed up with two more tweets.

One simply said, "Let's make it happen."

The other showed James standing next to Smith-Schuster in a Steelers uniform -- with the number 23, of course.

"RT if you're with it!!" Smith-Schuster wrote.

As of early Wednesday, it had more than 5,000 retweets.

James has not responded to the invitation.
