The San Francisco 49ers met with unrestricted free-agent RB Reggie Bush at Levi’s stadium on Wednesday but no contract offer was given. We had a great conversation,” 49ers GM Trent Baalke told CSN Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco. “He’s looking for a home. We obviously have interest. That’s why we brought him in here.”
The nine-year veteran had one of his worst seasons statistically in 2014 as he rushed for a lowly 297 yards and two touchdowns. Anyone miss Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore? In addition, Bush who is considered an exceptional receiver out of the backfield struggled in that department as well as he finished the 2014 season with 40 catches for 253 yards.
Baalke touched on Bush’s visit. “(We) got out of the visit what we needed. Now, it’s time to sit down and go through the pros and cons and try to make the best decision we can and he’ll have to make the best decision for him. He’s going to have options. We’re not the only team interested in Reggie Bush. I promise you that,” Baalke told Maiocco.
Who are those other teams you ask? They are none other than the New England Patriots and his original team the New Orleans Saints.
With Bush likely to take his visits there it will be interesting to see if Bush would come to San Francisco as he will likely fight with RB Kendall Hunter for the backup role.
