According to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland Raiders will likely not place the franchise tag on running back Michael Bush, since it would allocate about $7.7 million for next season to a guy that’s not even a starter.
Corkran also doesn’t believe Bush will want to sign a long term deal because he wants to go to a team where he has a chance at being a starter and that’s obviously not going to happen with the Raiders as long as Darren McFadden is around.
