The Chiefs have agreed to sign safety Deon Bush, according to agents Drew Rosenhaus and Robert Bailey (Twitter link via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com). Financial terms are not yet known, but it’ll be a one-year deal for the former Bear.
Bush, 29 in August, came into the league as a fourth-round pick of the Bears in 2016. Up until now, he spent all six years of his career in Chicago, serving mostly as a special teams specialist. Last year, however, Bush saw more defensive action, suiting up for 14 games (four starts) while notching two interceptions and five passes defensed. The Chiefs may use Bush for occasional support at free safety or slot coverage, but he’s likely to see more time on special teams.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball, the Chiefs have retooled their wide receiver group by signing one-time Steelers standout JuJu Smith-Schuster as well as former first-round pick Corey Coleman.
