Michael Bush heading to New England Patriots after losing out on Blount

Published Add your comment

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.
