According to ProFootballTalk.com, former Cardinal running back and Louisville native Michael Bush has signed with the Chicago Bears. Bush spent his entire career with the Oakland Raiders and became a free agent at the end of last season. He has visited numerous teams over the past few weeks including the Bengals and Seahawks. Bush and the Bears agreed on a $14 million contract with $7 million of that guaranteed. At an average of $3.5 million a year, that’s the best deal a free-agent running back has received this year.
The Chicago Bears just became one of my favorite NFL teams.
