49ers sign RB Reggie Bush

Mar 14, 2015 at 11:10 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have signed running back Reggie Bush, who last played for the Detroit Lions. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported it first on Twitter.

Bush was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the second overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He has since played for the Saints, Dolphins, Lions and now will continue his career with the 49ers.

Bush visited with the 49ers on Wednesday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. General manager Trent Baalke spoke highly of the visit.

He will join running backs Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter in San Francisco as the trio will attempt to replace the departure of Frank Gore, who signed with the Indianapolis Colts.

Bush has rushed for 5,465 yards on 1,266 carries with 35 rushing touchdowns. He has also added 3,489 receiving yards and 18 receiving touchdowns over his career.

You might remember that the 49ers played the Houston Texans in the final game of the 2005 season. That game was labeled the Bush Bowl, with the loser having the chance to land Bush in the 2006 NFL Draft. The 49ers beat the Texans 20-17 in overtime. The Texans would go on to draft Mario Williams instead.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

'Dominant in every facet': 49ers' Trent Williams tops ESPN's ranking of offensive tackles

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler continues to look at position groups across the NFL and rank the best players within each. His latest effort was ranking the league's top offensive tackles. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." Last year, the San Francisco 49ers acquired Trent Williams from the Washington Football Team to



'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during
