LAKE FOREST, IL -- The Chicago Bears agreed to terms on a four-year contract with RB Michael Bush today. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Bush joins the Bears after playing four seasons for the Oakland Raiders (2008-11) where he rushed 632 times for 2,642 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and 21 touchdowns. The 6-1, 245-pounder out of Louisville had his most productive pro season in 2011, setting career highs in attempts (256), yards (977), touchdowns (7), receptions (37), receiving yards (418) and starts (9) while playing in all 16 games. The former fourth-round pick (100th overall) entered the NFL in 2007 and spent his entire rookie season rehabbing a leg injury which he suffered during his final collegiate season.
