- Vic Carucci reports that Bush receives a one-year contract worth up to $3 million.
- Ian Rapoport confirms the news and adds that Bush’s contract is incentive-laden. Beyond that, Bush’s physical was fine and he’ll likely practice tomorrow.
The Bills brought in Bush for a workout this morning and previously reports said that if he passed a physical, they would likely sign him to a contract.
Previous reports have said that the Bills view Bush as a potential option at punt returner and as a “replacement/clone” for LeSean McCoy, if he needs a break or is injured.
Bush, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2006. He spent five years in New Orleans before being traded to the Dolphins in 2011. After two years with the Lions, Bush signed a one-year contract with the 49ers before his 2015 season came to an early end.
Bush sustained a torn MCL that he suffered after slipping on the exposed concrete at the Rams’ stadium in St. Louis.
In 2015, Bush appeared in five games and ran for 28 yards on eight carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with four receptions for 19 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
