After an injury filled career, Devin Bush signs a one-year deal with the Seahawks
One of the most disappointing picks for the Pittsburgh Steelers is on his way out. Linebacker Devin Bush is signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks after Pittsburgh let him walk. They have not announced any further value of Bush’s contract. The report is coming from Ian Rapoport.
The Seahawks are sending a message to the NFC West with the signing of Bush. They’re bolstering up their defense in hopes of another charge at the playoffs. Earlier this morning, the Seahawks signed two potential key players to their already stout defense. Bush and safety Julian Love from the New York Giants.

People have doubted Bush since he entered the NFL. The young linebacker hasn’t lived up to his high expectations on the Pittsburgh Steelers, as they traded up to select him 10th overall in the 2019 NFL draft. The 24-year-old had 81 total tackles in 17 games last season, the second highest in his career. Bush had 44 solo tackles along with 37 assists. Other than the tackles, Bush didn’t add much value to the usually above average Steelers defense. He only had two passing deflections: no sacks, no forced fumbles, or anything else.
Outside of Bush’s poor play, the injury bug has caught him. Bush has had two major injuries in his career so far, including a groin injury and a gruesome ACL tear. He will join alongside fellow linebacker Jordyn Brooks, who has been an amazing pick for Seattle. But if the injury bug doesn’t continue to haunt the young Michigan Wolverine, he can become a pretty solid piece for the Seahawks in the midst of a rebuild.
