NFL's Ian Rapoport is reporting that former Chicago Bears RB, Michael Bush, is set to join the New England Patriots.
Bush has been a free agent after having two years at the Bears. Before that, the 29-year old was playing with the Oakland Raiders.
He appears to be a perfect fit for the Patriots who lost out last week on their attempt to keep LeGarrette Blount.
Blount went to the Pittsburgh Steelers after a franchise record for all purpose yards for the 2013 Patriots.
Bush now seems to be on Bill Belichick's radar as a fitting replacement for Blount, due to his superior size and that he has a 900 yard running season under his belt. Something that a lot of running backs can't claim at the moment.
There are no confirmations yet on the length of the contract or the money involved, but it's likely it will be a one year contract, much like Blount's was before.
