The Bills are in need of depth behind starter LeSean McCoy after Karlos Williams was hit with a four-game suspension for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Fifth-round pick Jonathan Williams is also likely to be hit with a suspension after a DUI arrest. Bills coaches view Bush as an experienced vet with a similar running style to McCoy, which should allow him to hit the ground running in Buffalo.

Bush announced in February that he was intent on playing in 2016, though it was unclear at the time whether that feeling was being reciprocated back from any of the league’s 32 teams. Now, he has found his new NFL home.

Last year, Bush signed with the 49ers, but he played just five games before tearing his left ACL on the concrete at the Edwards Jones Dome in St. Louis. After finishing the year with a grand total of 28 yards, Bush says he has recovered from his injury and is ready for action.

  1. I hope they don’t give him more than the minimum.

    Does Reggie Bush qualify as one of the biggest draft busts in recent memory? This was a guy who was supposed to transform the RB position. A can’t miss sure #1 overall choice. Well, Houston chose correctly in passing on him. He’s bounced from team to team and has never been consistent. Overall, he’s definitely a below average RB. But maybe at age 32, as a 3rd stringer, he will finally become the next Barry Sanders?

    You can take this to the bank. This year Bush will turn into the Bill’s #1 RB and break every record held by previous Bill’s RB.
