Who is Eric Kush?
Eric Kush, who plays for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL), is an American footballer born in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, the USA on September 9th, 1989. Like most sports stars, Kush began to show his love and passion for American football while still at school. He attended Chartiers Valley High School in Collier Township, Pennsylvania, and after graduation, he went to the California University of Pennsylvania where he played college football.
Following his exceptional abilities in the sport and his determination to make a successful career, Kush made the leap to the national level after being knocked out by a professional team, the Kansas City Chiefs, in the sixth round of the 170th, which took place on 5 September 2015. The following day, 6 September, he was approached by the Tamper-based football franchise, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, for waivers.
On the 16th day of the same September, Kush was inducted into the Carolina Panthers training squad but was released on 27 October 2015. His brief transition from one professional soccer team to another lasted throughout 2015. On November 5, 2015, Kush moved to Houston Texans after signing a two-year contract with the professional team. The Texans released him on November 15, 2015, and the Los Angeles Rams took him on, only to release him again after ten months as part of their final cuts to the roster.
Kush eventually teamed up with the Chicago Bears. He was dropped from the team on September 4, 2016, and in the same year, he made four starts and eight appearances. On February 15, 2017, the Chicago Beers decided to renew their contract with Kush, but the year could not end well for the young player as he was ruled out for the game of the season after suffering a hamstring fracture while training at the camp.
