Reggie Bush is set to begin the next stage of his NFL career in the northeast.
On Monday, it was reported that the veteran running back was closing in on a contract with the Buffalo Bills. Hours later, the Bills confirmed the signing of Bush to a one-year deal.
Bush, who visited the team and underwent a physical on Monday, could possibly join the team for training camp as soon as Tuesday.
Buffalo marks the fifth different team Bush has joined throughout his professional career and the third different team in as many years. After spending 2006-2010 with the New Orleans Saints, Bush spent two years with the Miami Dolphins, two years with the Detroit Lions and a season with the San Francisco 49ers.
Bush’s single season with the 49ers was marred by a torn meniscus which prematurely ended his season.
If Bush is able to get back to 100 percent, he will be a part of the backfield in Buffalo led by star running back LeSean McCoy. With McCoy and Bush, the Bills have two of the most dynamic rushers in the league — assuming they can both remain healthy.
Since becoming the No. 2 overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft out of USC, Bush has totaled 5,493 rushing yards, 3,508 receiving yards and 53 total touchdowns in his career.
