Devin Bush says being in Seattle is loads completely different than his time in Pittsburgh. And he is not simply speaking about being on the other coast. In a radio interview with Seattle’s KJR: host Ian Furness, Bush stated the tradition in Seattle may be very completely different.
“One eighty, completely,” he stated when requested concerning the distinction in tradition. “One thing I stay up for. I can not wait to get in, then exit towards my first opponent and shoot the lights out. That is what I am wanting ahead to. I’m excited. I can not wait to get on the market and simply begin yelling with my teammates and coaches and simply get this factor going.”
Bush did not specify what makes the Seahawks tradition completely different. After all, he is new to Seattle and hasn’t been round his new workforce practically as a lot, signing a one-year deal on March seventeenth than a month in the past on March seventeenth. Like Pittsburgh, the Seahawks are led by an incumbent and veteran head coach in Pete Carroll. Bush stated the teaching workers was the principle cause he signed with the workforce.
A top-10 choose, Bush’s time in Pittsburgh was at all times going to be bumpy. With the burden of excessive expectations to switch Ryan Shazier. After a serviceable however unremarkable rookie season, Bush improved in 2020 earlier than tearing his ACL. He missed the remainder of the yr, and though he labored arduous to get cleared to start out in 2021, he seemed as shaken as a participant might be with a critical knee damage. As a substitute of hesitating, he hesitated and swallowed the blocks. Whereas he nonetheless confirmed quickness, he hardly ever used it to play with a splash.
Pittsburgh apparently declined his fifth-year choice, and he completed the 2022 season totally on the sidelines, hardly ever used within the Steelers’ last video games towards the Baltimore Ravens and the Cleveland Browns. There was zero curiosity from both aspect in understanding a deal earlier than free company, and Bush confirmed the Steelers advised him they weren’t making an attempt to convey him again. He’ll now search a one-year deal in Seattle.
Maybe the tradition is completely different. He’ll profit from enjoying alongside future Corridor of Fame quarterback Bobby Wagner, who returned to Seattle after spending a yr with the Los Angeles Rams. A change of surroundings may do Bush some good. However what is going to make him higher is enhancing his recreation. If this doesn’t occur, tradition is not going to matter.
