2021 NFL Draft

Steelers Sign Hawaii WR Rico Bussey Jr. as UDFA



The Steelers added undrafted free agent Rico Bussey Jr. to their wide receiver room, the team announced Saturday night.

The 6-foot, 186-pound Hawaii product started his college career at North Texas, where he was eighth in the country in touchdown catches (12) in 2018. However, he suffered a torn ACL in 2019 and joined Hawaii in 2020.

He started all eight games for the Rainbow Warriors and caught 31 passes for 274 yards and a touchdown.

Bussey has potential as a deep threat and is a talented player after the catch but has inconsistent hands and shows a downgrade in speed following the ACL injury.
