Bills sign ex-49ers RB Reggie Bush to one-year deal

Aug 1, 2016 at 12:55 PM--


Along with now-Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin, another free agent that the San Francisco 49ers apparently made no effort to re-sign was RB Reggie Bush. The Buffalo Bills have reportedly signed the disappointing running back, who had some early success with the New Orleans Saints after being a highly touted running back out of USC.


The 49ers had signed Bush in March of 2015, hoping to use him as a dynamic dual threat in the backfield. He appeared in only five games for the 49ers before suffering a torn MCL during a November 1 matchup with the Rams in St. Louis. The injury occurred after he slipped on the sideline concrete at the Edward Jones Dome while running out of bounds on a punt return.

Bush had 28 yards rushing on eight carries and 19 yards receiving on four catches for the 49ers last season.

A fully healthy Carlos Hyde is expected to carry most of the workload for San Francisco in 2016. This past season, Hyde suffered a stress fracture in his left foot, causing him to miss nine games. He finished 2015 with just 470 yards on 115 carries and three touchdowns. The injury was discovered by the media just prior to the team's Week 7 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, a game that Hyde would end up playing in.

The 49ers reported to training camp on Saturday.

PFF names 49ers' running back battle as one to watch after Raheem Mostert requests trade

It's entirely likely that the San Francisco 49ers don't grant Raheem Mostert's trade request, and the running back ends up leading the team's ferocious rushing attack this season. He was a breakout surprise last year — and really, in the playoffs — and has earned an increased workload going forward. Mostert's $2.575 million base salary for 2020 is second to Tevin Coleman's $4.55 million among the Niners' backs, if you don't count fullback Kyle Juszczyk, of course. The team also has Jerick McKinnon, who head coach Kyle Shanahan was high on after signing him in 2018. Injury has knocked him out of each of the last two seasons, though, so no one really knows yet what the 49ers have there. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus

Newton hasn't been guaranteed the Patriots' starting job, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic. Newton is coming off a Lisfranc fracture, and NFL teams haven't been able to perform a physical on the quarterback due to the offseason restrictions because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With
