Steelers All 91: ILB Devin Bush

Published

on

All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

55 • Devin Bush, rookie inside linebacker

Last year: Played in 12 games as a junior at Michigan before declaring early for the NFL Draft. The Steelers traded up to take him at No. 10 overall.

Stats: Finished his 2018 season with 66 tackles, 8 1/2 tackles for a loss, 4 1/2 sacks and four passes defended.

Accolades, Highlights:

Consensus All-American, Big Ten defensive player of the year and linebacker of the year, two-time All-Big Ten selection. Voted a team captain as a junior.

Camp outlook: The Steelers have experienced veterans at inside linebacker in Mark Barron and Vince Williams, so Bush won’t be guaranteed any playing time, but the Steelers have also seemingly given him every opportunity to make a very quick transition to NFL regular.

Projected role: Bush may not be a full-time starter at the beginning of the season, but he could be by the end of the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward has been named NFLPA Community MVP for Week 1.

Heyward was honored for installing his first Little Free Library, a book-sharing box placed in underserved communities around the Pittsburgh area.

Little Free Library is a non-profit organization that “inspires a love of reading, builds community, and sparks creativity by fostering neighborhood book exchanges around the world.”

The installation of the book-sharing boxes marks the launch of the Rufus and Judy Jordan Literacy Project, a new initiative of the Cameron Heyward Foundation that will work to promote children’s literacy and honor his late grandparents, both of whom were lifelong educators in Pittsburgh.

Drafted in first round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Heyward has spend his entire career in Pittsburgh. He is a three-time Pro Bowler, and has twice received First-Team All-Pro honors.

Heyward and the Steelers agreed to a four-year, $71.4 million contract extension on Sept. 6 that will allow him to retire in Pittsburgh and make him the highest-paid defense player over the age of 30 in NFL history.
