The Pittsburgh Steelers appear to be moving on from linebacker Devin Bush. On Monday, the AFC North franchise decided it will not be picking up his fifth-year option. That means 2022 will probably be his final season in Pittsburgh.

Bush started 34 and appeared in 35 games for the Steelers over the last three seasons. He had 205 total tackles, four sacks and five fumble recoveries during that span.

The former Michigan star will become a free agent next offseason.

"#Steelers not showing faith in Devin Bush. This might be a mistake. If Bush balls out with Myles Jack beside him & a fully reinforced DL...he might price himself right out of Pittsburgh."

"Is trading into the top 10 to take Devin Bush the worst decision Kevin Colbert has ever made? Not many big misses on his resume so this trade up sticks out big time"

"Wasted pick! I thought he was gonna be a beast!"

"Not shocking. He’s been beyond underwhelming. Earn your keep in a prove it year."

"Pretty shocked Devin hasn’t been a good pro. Hopefully he thrives on his next team."

Bush, of course, could have a breakout year this upcoming season. But it's unlikely he'd re-sign with the Steelers considering they declined his fifth-year option.
