Jets Come to Terms with Sixth-Round Safety Josh Bush

The Jets have reached agreement on a four-year contract with sixth round safety Josh Bush.

Selected with the 17th pick in the sixth round, the No. 187 pick overall, Bush’s rookie contract has a maximum value of $2.204 million with a signing bonus of $104,220. Bush becomes the second Jets’ draftee to agree to a contract, joining second round wide receiver Stephen Hill, who signed a four-year contract late last week.

The 5-foot-11, 208-pound safety was a three-year starter at Wake Forest, totaling 134 tackles, including 14 for a loss, with seven interceptions and 16 passes defensed during his 46-game career. Bush earned first-team All-ACC honors after intercepting six passes last season.

Bush’s status on the 53-man roster and first-year contributions are likely to be determined on special teams, but given the recent injury history of free agent addition LaRon Landry, the rookie could see playing time at free safety right away.
