NFL Draft

Steelers Sign First-Round Pick Devin Bush



The Steelers signed first-round draft pick Devin Bush on Sunday at the close of the team’s three-day rookie minicamp.

Bush, who the Steelers traded up to the No. 10 spot in the draft to select, signed a four-year contract worth a fully guaranteed $18.9 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The Steelers will hold a fifth-year option for Bush, which the team must choose to exercise after his third season.

The former Michigan linebacker was rated as the consensus No. 2 inside linebacker in the class coming into the 2019 NFL Draft. After LSU’s Devin White went to Tampa Bay with the No. 5 pick, the Steelers pulled the trigger on a trade with Denver that sent the No. 20 overall pick in the first round along with the Steelers’ second-round pick and 2020 third-round pick to the Broncos.

At Michigan, Bush played 39 games and made 194 tackles, 20 for a loss, 10 sacks, defended 17 passes and had one interception.

Bush and the rest of the team’s rookies just finished participating in the Steelers three-day rookie minicamp at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side, and said on Friday that he’s fit right in to his new team.

“I’m a part of the Steelers organization,” Bush said. “I’m a Steeler. I’m very grateful to be in this position right now.”

The Steelers have now signed eight of their nine picks from last month’s draft, with just third-round cornerback Justin Layne from Michigan State yet to sign.
