2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
After five mostly injury-plagued and somewhat disappointing seasons in New Orleans, Bush was traded to the Dolphins prior to training camp last season. Most pundits expected that Bush would continue to tease with his potential and fall short of the lofty expectations that accompanied him based on his outstanding college career, culminating in the Saints drafting him with the 2nd overall pick in the 2006 draft. Although Miamiís oft-stated objective was to make Bush a workhorse back, that was met with much skepticism given that the team had traded up in the 2nd round to acquire Kansas State product Daniel Thomas. Bush started the season slowly, gaining just 243 rushing yards, 97 receiving yards and scoring once in the teamís first six games. After that, he came on strong, rushing for 854 yards and six touchdowns while chipping in 199 receiving yards over last nine games. During that stretch, he topped 100 rushing yards five times, including his final four games, and hit double-digit fantasy points eight times. In 15 games (he sat out Week 17 with a knee injury), Bush set career-highs in rushing attempts with 217 (60 more than his previous high set in 2007), rushing yards with 1,097 and rushing touchdowns with six. The Dolphins scaled back his involvement in the passing game and he averaged fewer than three receptions per game for the first time in his career. For 2012, Bush rates as a risky high-end RB2 and it will be a surprise if he matches the 11th place running back ranking he had in 2011 given the new west coast offense being installed by head coach Joe Philbin. Expect Bush to be more of a hybrid back with less running up the middle or more time spent slit out wide as a receiver.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bills release RB Karlos Williams     -- Sat Aug 20 2:30 pm --

Four-game suspension
The team cut the second-year pro prior to its second preseason game against the New York Giants at New Era Field. Without Williams, the Bills will rely on Reggie Bush, Mike Gillislee, rookie Jonathan Williams and James Wilder Jr. to provide depth behind starter LeSean McCoy. (Buffalo News)

FF Today's Take: A four-game suspension and showing up to off-season workouts out of shape isn't going to make a good impression. Williams was very productive last season (9 TDs in eleven games) but the Bills have decided to cut ties leaving an unsettled RB group behind LeSean McCoy. Gillislee should get first crack at meaningful snaps.
Bills finalizing contract for Reggie Bush     -- Mon Aug 1 4:10 pm --

One-year deal
Reggie Bush appears to be headed to a new home in Buffalo on a one-year, according to multiple reports. This will be Bushís fifth team heading into the 11th year of his career since being drafted No. 2 overall by the New Orleans Saints out of USC. With backup Karlos Williams being suspended for the first four weeks of the season, Bush will have a shot at earning some reps behind starter LeSean McCoy in a crowded backfield. At least for those first few games, Bush will be battling backups Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams. (USA Today)

FF Today's Take: Bush was limited to five games in his only year with San Francisco before he tore his meniscus on some exposed concrete along the Rams' sideline. The 31-year-old is likely being added as veteran insurance while Karlos Williams serves his four-game suspension. Once that is over, Bush may transition into a full-time punt returner.
Bills still talking with Reggie Bush     -- Tue Jul 26 11:15 am --

Source claims deal could still happen sending veteran RB to WNY
From Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk: "After reports emerged linking running back Reggie Bush to the Bills, Bush tapped the brakes. At some point, however, it looks like heíll be dialing up Western New York on the GPS." Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks between Bush and the Bills continue. The Bills view Bush as a potential option at punt returner and as a replacement/clone of LeSean McCoy, if he needs a break or is injured." (PFT)

FF Today's Take: the Bills really do need to be ready for the four-game suspension imposed recently on running back Karlos Williams, and whether Bush fits after Williams returns from his looming exile is a secondary issue.
