The Buffalo Bills have offered running back Reggie Bush an opportunity to play in 2016, but the running back isn't ready to make a decision just yet. Bush spoke to For the Win about the 2016 season and mentioned that he hasn't made a decision on where he'll be playing this year.
“I know everybody’s been texting me and asking about Buffalo," Bush said, "but as of right now, I haven’t made a decision. But if the opportunity is there, obviously, Buffalo is the most known one right now. But we’ll see. I’m still trying to figure out what’s going to be the best opportunity for me and my family.”
Buffalo's offer to Bush is reportedly a one-year deal at the league minimum. The former USC star has the option to join the Bills, but he may be waiting for a better opportunity. Despite Karlos Williams' four-game suspension, Buffalo's backfield is still loaded with talent. LeSean McCoy is the clear-cut starter and Bush would be competing for snaps with Jonathan Williams, Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr., and Dan "Boom" Herron. There's no guarantee that Bush would win a roster spot on Buffalo's 53-man roster.
Furthermore, if Bush were to make the team he's probably aware that his playing time could drop significantly when Williams returns from suspension. It's hard to blame Bush for being undecided. With training camp and the preseason right around the corner, Bush may be wise to wait for an injury to occur to a running back needy team.null
