Pittsburgh's first top-10 draft pick in 19 years is officially under contract.


The Steelers signed linebacker Devin Bush to his four-year rookie deal on Sunday, a source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. Bush's fully guaranteed deal is worth $18,871,768, Rapoport added.

As with all first-round contracts, Bush's deal includes a fifth-year team option.

4th of the top 10 draft picks to sign.  Said he's "eager to learn the playbook and get to work".

After wincing at his selection of draft-day outfits, the kid has been saying and doing the right things.  That's no guarantee of on-field performance, but it allows a little optimism to creep in.

I think all the picks are signed with the possible exception of Justin Layne. It's a new beginning in the 'Burgh.

I wholeheartedly agree. Other than playing for the TUN, I love the pick. The articles I've been reading are very, very high on him. 

Can't wait to see him in action.

Just for the love of all that is holy - let him get through the preseason uninjured.
