    Today is THE day...Bush's 5th year option decision. Why are they waiting until the very last minute? Every other player has already been decided!

    Maybe they are working on a long term agreement

    Unfortunately

    Steelers declined to pick up the fifth-year option for Linebacker Devin Bush, per source. He now will be playing on an expiring contract.

    If this doesn't put a fire under his ass to perform, Steelers will gladly watch him go to another team.

    As to not getting a top talent to replace him in this year's draft, the good news is that good inside backers can usually be more easily found in each class than top talents at other positions. So while I would have loved to see them get Lloyd this year, if they still need to replace him next year, they should have options available to do so.

    The NFL is the law of the Serengeti. Any animal half a step slower either doesn’t eat or is eaten. Bush is now that animal. Nothing he did in 2021 led me to think they should pick up that 5th year option. If he shows that he can be the Bush of his rookie year, he will make a ton of lettuce. If not, he will be selling insurance.
    I would have loved Lloyd or Chenal, but this team has holes that could not be filled in one draft.

    They knew they weren’t picking up his option and still didn’t draft Beavers. *sigh*

    Hopefully Bush has a great season, only problem with that is they will probably lose him to free agency then.

    Agreed, that if he has a great season, he isn't re-signing with Steelers. If Edmunds is any indication, the only way Bush re-signs is if no one else wants him. Pretty sure that's not a good thing. Penny wise, pound foolish IMO.

    uh...guess I should have used green font.:smiley1:

    And then watch him come begging back for a 1 year $2.5 million contract.

    A shame....


    Really wanted him to pan out. Sad to see that he did not. Hopefully he can do so in 2022 but I seriously doubt he stays with the team long term.


    As for my early 2023 ILB options.... Trenton Simpson from Clemson, Jeremy Banks from Tenneseee and possibly Jack Campbell from Iowa (seriously doubt any Iowa player will be a Steeler at this point)..... this is more or less... what the team is looking at. Some possible FA pickups like RaShaan Evans as well but, rather have the team just restart and draft one.... again...
