LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have released seven-year veteran running back Michael Bush.
Chicago will save $2.85 million with the move, clearing $1.85 million in 2014 salary cap space. Mostly a backup in his career, Bush started 20 of 89 games in seven seasons with Oakland (2007-11) and Chicago (2012-13), rushing for 3,250 yards with 29 touchdowns. He added 1,010 yards receiving and two touchdowns on 104 receptions.
As a second-stringer behind Matt Forte with the Bears, Bush had 177 rushing attempts for 608 yards and eight touchdowns. He added 13 receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown in 28 games, one of them a start.
A fourth-round selection (100th overall) by the Raiders in the 2007 draft out of Louisville, Bush sat out the 2007 season due to a leg injury.
