Reggie Bush Visits San Francisco


SANTA CLARA—Former Heisman Trophy winner and number-two overall pick Reggie Bush is paying a visit to Santa Clara to visit with San Francisco 49ers brass.

Both sides have expressed mutual interest and San Francisco has been bantered about as a potential landing spot for the California native ever since his February release from Detroit.

Reggie Bush may still have something left in the tank, even at 30.

Bush, who is coming off of an injury-plagued season with the Detroit Lions, could add a pass-catching, home-run threat to the San Francisco offense, a dimension that is. To present in the team’s current stable of tailbacks.

If signed, Bush will not be expected to be a workhorse runner, but rather, a change-of-pace to the hard-nosed style of emerging second-year tailback Carlos Hyde.

If Bush stays healthy, the move may prove one of the shrewder signings of the 2015 off-season. If not, the former USC star could find himself yet another forgotten runner on the wrong side of 30.
