Woke up to this little nugget this morning from ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Quote: "After adding QB Matt Flynn the Seahawks have scheduled a visit Tuesday for Raiders RB Michael Bush TE Jacob Tamme also to visit Seattle." Michael comes in at #22 on the Pro Football Talk Free Agent Top 100
Bush is born June 16th 1984. He's 27 years old and was drafted in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders.
After a two year injury spell, Bush finally returned to the football field in 2008.
He was the Raiders third string running back but saw some action because of injuries to Darren McFadden and Justin Fargas.
He also filled in as a blocking fullback.
In 2010 he rushed for 655 yards in 14 games, including eight touchdowns.
Highlight game was a 30 carry 157 yds 1 TD game vs. the Chargers. He also added 8 catches for 85 yards in that one.
Bush would be brought in to compliment the newly re-signed Marshawn Lynch, and would most likely replace free agent running back Justin Forsett.
We'll keep you posted on the lastest developments out of Seattle.
Do you live under a rock? Matt Flynn signed yesteday, and Jason Jones the day before that.
BEST OF MAXIM
Free-agent running back Michael Bush is scheduled to meet with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday.Bush, who had a breakout season with the Oakland Raiders thanks to injuries to fellow running back Darren McFadden, is among a number of players on the Bengals’ list, including running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.Bush rushed for 977 yards, caught 37 passes for 418 receiving yards and scored...
2012 free agency is now approaching a week old and Michael Bush's interest on the market has been tepid, at best. It was stated that he was going to visit the Bears and the Bengals but neither has signed him at this time.
One theory, per PFT, is that the new rookie wage scale makes veterans RBs less valuable but I'm not sure that I agree with that logic. While the new...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Chris Mortensen has reported that Peyton Manning hasn’t informed any of the Titans, 49ers or Broncos of when he’ll make his final decision on which team he plans on playing for.
There was a report just a couple of days ago that Manning would make his decision by Monday or Tuesday, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at this point.
Per Adam Schefter and Brian Mac at Mac's Football Blog today.
Another free agent scheduled to visit the Seahawks is tight end Jacob Tamme, a 2008 fourth-round pick out of Kentucky who caught 67 passes for 631 yards and four touchdowns in place of an injured Dallas Clark during the 2010 season. Tamme had 19 receptions for 177 yards last season.
Any lasting dreams of having Matt Flynn come to the Browns should have been dashed days ago. But just in case you had a little bit of hope left, today you can let it go completely.
Adam Schefter reports that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year deal for $26 million with $10 million guaranteed.
So stop wondering if Matt Flynn is “the answer” for the Browns. If he is a good quarterback...
Running back Michael Bush is slated to visit Seattle on Tuesday, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Bushs stock on the free agent market has not been very good so far, which is why he will consider taking a backup role behind stud Marshawn Lynch in Seattle. Bush is meeting the Bengals today, who would give him a better opportunity for playing time with Cedric Benson...
Yea...as if the New England offense needed anymore fire power. The Patriots signed the 30 year old Brandon Lloyd to a 3 year deal worth $12 million dollars reports Adam Schefter. Lloyd spent the latter part of last season in St Louis after Denver traded him away when they made the switch to Tim Tebow
Quarterback Matt Flynn agreed to a three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks worth $26M, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
So Seattle plucked Flynn away from Miami - who is now likely to focus on signing Alex Smith after also falling out of the running for Peyton Manning. Flynn should beat out Tarvaris Jackson for the starting gig in Seattle, and looks to rank as...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have re-sign safety Reggie Nelson. Terms of the deal haven’t been disclosed yet.
Re-signing Nelson was a priority for the Bengals after the great season he had in helping the Bengals get back to the playffos. He racked up 85 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and 4 interceptions.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Denver Broncos have tentatively scheduled a 3pm EST press conference to announce the signing of quarterback Peyton Manning.
Today will mark the beginning of an era in Broncos history with Manning as their quarterback and the end of the Tim Tebow era.
The Broncos will look to trade Tebow as soon as possible once Manning’s deal is finalized.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, quarterback Peyton Manning has agreed to a five-year $96 million deal with the Denver Broncos.
What’s interesting is that we don’t know how much of the $96 million that Manning is scheduled to receive is guaranteed. That’ll be interesting to find out.
Manning will be officially introduced a member of the Broncos at 3pm EST.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Peyton Manning is officially a member of the Denver Broncos. The terms are reportedly five years, $96 million. The Broncos have scheduled a press conference at noon to presumably announce the deal.
As first tweeted out by Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen from ESPN:
As many of my followers on Twitter replied, thank God it’s over.
Where does this leave the teams that were interested? Let’s take a quick look:
Obviously they are the big winners in this entire scenario, winning the rights to the biggest named free agent in NFL history, but what about his fit...
