RB Michael Bush Signs With Chicago Bears

Curious of Bush to go from one back up job to another.

Unless he knows something that we don’t know about Matt Forte’s future with the team.

Michael Bush is heading to Chicago.

Bush, a free agent running back who has played his entire career with the Raiders, has agreed to terms on a deal with the Bears. A league source tells PFT’s Mike Florio that the deal is a four-year, $14 million contract with $7 million guaranteed. At an average of $3.5 million a year, that’s the best deal a free-agent running back has received this year.

Not a horrible deal, but considering what former backup running backs like Michael Turner have gotten in the past it isn’t that great.

Even worse for Forte as now the Bears will not be in a hurry to give him a long term deal.
