While waiting on the possible addition of Josh Sitton, the Bears added former LA Ram and noted tank top enthusiast Eric Kush.
Gotta thank the @RamsNFL for the opportunity. Had a blast in LA. Heading to Chicago Bears! The journey continues!— Eric Kush (@EricKush64) September 4, 2016
Kush was a 6th round pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2013 draft. Bears beat guy Dan Durkin had this to tweet out this afternoon about Kush:
Kush has only logged one start and 10 total games in his NFL career, having bounced around after his stint in Kansas City. Here's a breakdown of his career:
- Drafted by Chiefs in 2013
- Waived by Chiefs in 2015
- Claimed by Buccaneers in September 2015
- Waived eight days later in September 2015
- Signed by Panthers to Practice squad in September 2015
- Released by Panthers in October 2015
- Signed by Texans in November 2015
- Released ten days later in November 2015
- Claimed from waivers by Rams in November 2015
- Waived September 2016 by Rams
That's a lot of moves. Kush projects to provide depth at center/guard, especially if a deal for Sitton comes through. Also, as mentioned before, he's really into tank tops:
What do you have to say about this signing, Bears fans? Do you think the depth is improve from a day ago?
