NFL Free Agency: Michael Bush Visits With Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears

Michael Bush was a candidate for a possible spot in the Kansas City Chiefs’ backfield after being set free by the Oakland Raiders. While the Chiefs eventually landed with Peyton Hillis as their choice for a tandem back with Jamaal Charles, Bush has moved on to the AFC North to potentially replace Cedric Benson of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Jason La Canfora writes, “Michael Bush met with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis during Arizona State’s pro day, sources said, and they had lunch together. But his visit with the Bengals doesn’t begin until Monday, sources said. He visited the Bears last week and several teams looking at him as a 1A or 1B back. Several people around the league believe Bush would be a good fit for the Jets, who have Shonn Greene as their starter.”

Bush also leaves a hole with the Raiders as they watch their safety net for Darren McFadden leave. Given McFadden’s injury prone nature, it’s likely the Raiders bring Bush back later in free agency or find a replacement on the same level. The team cannot afford to not have a solid handcuff to McFadden despite his incredible talent.
