With the loss of LeGarrette Blount to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New England Patriots have a huge void to fill in the backfield, and according to Ian Rapoport, they may be looking to fill that void with former Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush, who is set to visit with the team.

Back on March 10th, the Bears terminated Bush’s contract that was just two years into a four-year agreement. The move freed up nearly $2 million in cap space, and as we all know, the team recently signed free-agent defensive end Jared Allen, so it was apparently worth it.
Bush has been considered somewhat of a bust since entering the NFL, with only eight career touchdowns on his resume, but we all know that players somehow see themselves re-vitalized when they get with Bill Belichick and the Patriots organization, so this move does have the potential to pay dividends across the board.
