Free Agent Michael Bush Drawing Interest From Bears, Bengals And Seahawks

The free agent running back market has been quiet thus far in the 2012 NFL free agency period, but things should soon be heating up with several good backs on the market, including RB Michael Bush, formerly of the Oakland Raiders. Bush already visited the Chicago Bears, and he'll be visiting the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seattle Seahawks are now on his visit list. The Seahawks' big move in free agency has been the addition of QB Matt Flynn, who agreed to a three-year deal over the weekend.

The Seattle visit is reportedly on Tuesday.

The Bengals are losing Cedric Benson in free agency, so he would be the main option in Cincinnati. In Chicago, he would be playing alongside Matt Forte, who received the franchise tag. In Seattle, he would be splitting time with Marshawn Lynch, who received a multi-year contract this year.

Among those teams, the Bengals are probably the best fit. It also doesn't hurt Bush that the Bengals have a boatload of salary cap space.
