The Pittsburgh Steelers traded up to acquire linebacker Devin Bush in the 2019 NFL Draft for his playmaking abilities. He took those abilities to an absurd level on Sunday with a wild interception.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson thought he hit tight end Nick Boyle on a dime. Somehow, Bush found a way to snatch the football out of Boyle’s arms and hang onto it as they both fell to the ground.
Bush showed some incredible skills during his collegiate career, but this is something different. While he couldn’t stop a great throw, he found a way to steal a catch right from the tight end’s grasp.
Pittsburgh’s front office has committed extensive resources to improve its defense. It’s clear that things are going to get better with Bush at linebacker for years to come.
