The 26-year-old Sloter, who played for Southern Mississippi and Northern Colorado, has never played in a regular-season NFL game. He’s mainly been a practice squad guy and has played in some preseason games.
Rush is only 24-years-old and has played in two NFL seasons. He played 9 games in 2019 for the Philadelphia Eagles where he had nine tackles including three tackles-for-loss. In 2020, he played four games with the Seattle Seahawks before being released. He had five tackles and .5 sacks with the Seahawks.
It’s largely expected that Rush will slot in as a backup to Mario Edwards, Jr., covering for the recently injured Roy Robertson-Harris, who is set to have season-ending shoulder surgery.
