Josh Bush has been playing on borrowed time. He played well in training camp and the preseason, but ultimately, the Denver Broncos didn't need a fifth safety, with T.J. Ward, Darian Stewart, David Bruton and Omar Bolden. However, Ward was suspended for the opening game and Bolden has been banged up.
Now, however, the Broncos have parted ways with the fourth-year pro.
The roster transaction comes in preparation of the arrival of offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus, whom the Broncos agreed to terms with today. Bush has played 25 snaps on defense this year, and has totaled one tackle, earning a -0.3 cumulative grade via Pro Football Focus.
Bush was originally a 2012 sixth round pick of Rex Ryan's New York Jets. He was signed to the Broncos practice squad last November and went on to intercept a pass late in the season—the only one of his career. He's a solid player and should find a home on a safety-needy team.
