2013 Outlook
Coming off a career year in 2011 with Oakland, Michael Bush was expected to be one of the more sought after free agents on the market. However, the market for his services was soft and he ended up signing with the Bears to a team friendly four-year, $14-million contract. With the Raiders, Bush emerged as a solid producer when Darren McFadden was lost to injury, finishing the season with career highs in rushing yards (977) and receiving yards (418). While those numbers were solid, he wilted down the stretch gaining just 378 yards over the Raiders final six games and averaging a measly 3.2 yards per carry. With the Bears, Bush will serve as Matt Forte’s backup and the expectation is that he will also assume short yardage duties. Bush rates as one of the better handcuff options in the league and could emerge as a decent flex option in leagues that employ that position given his role as a touchdown vulture, especially if you are of the opinion that the Bears offense is ready to take it up a notch in 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Bears release RB Michael Bush     -- Mon Mar 10 6:30 pm --

Cut after two years into four-year deal
The Bears on Monday released running back Michael Bush, a long-anticipated move that clears significant salary-cap space but leaves the team without a proven backup to starter Matt Forte. It saves the Bears $2.85 million for 2014 and clears $1.85 million in cap space. (Chicago Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Bush never carved out a significant role in the Bears offense behind Forte. Bush had 63 carries for 197 yards and 3 touchdowns last season. Expect Chicago to address the running back situation in free agency or the upcoming draft.
