Seahawks sign center Evan Brown

Brown has bounced around the league a bit since 2019 – four teams in four years. He did end up being the Lions’ starter at center for the majority of the 2021 and 2022 seasons, however. Brown was good at blocking for the run game last year but not good when pass-protecting.

Grade: C

For 12s, the hope should be that maybe Brown, who is 6’3″ and 320 pounds so big enough to play in the NFL, is a stop-gap player for whoever Seattle drafts in 2023. Brown isn’t bad, but he hasn’t shown the ability to be a long-term starter. Yet.

Seahawks sign linebacker Devin Bush

Bush is an interesting player. He is almost hurt by not meeting the expectations that the Steelers had for him when he was drafted 10th overall in the 2019 draft. That is a pretty high pick to not have panned out as well as Pittsburgh hoped. Bush is a solid tackler and big hitter but he does have his limitations.

Grade: C

Bush isn’t overly tall – he is 5’11” – so maybe that hurts him when he goes one-on-one in coverage with a tight end, but whatever the reason, Bush is not good at covering receivers. He also won’t add much in terms of pressuring quarterbacks as he has just 10 QB hits in four seasons. By far Bush’s best year in the NFL was his rookie season of 2019. In 2020m he tore his ACL and hasn’t seemed the same since. But maybe a change of scenery will help him rebuild his career.
