According to a source, free-agent RB Michael Bush (Bears) visited with the New England Patriots on Tuesday, April 1.
Huddle Up: With LeGarrette Blount signing with the Steelers, the Pats need a bigger back, and the 6-foot-2, 243-pound Bush -- who rushed for 608 yards and 8 TDs with the Bears the past 2 seasons -- would fill the bill. Plus, the Patriots need another RB to fill out their usual multi-headed RBBC.

Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush said he played most of 2012 with a fractured bone in his right shoulder, but he says he is fully healed from both rib and shoulder injuries he dealt with last season. His role in the team's offense is undefined this offseason under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman.
Huddle Up: Bush appears to be ready to go; as for his undefined role with the team, Matt Forte's dismal history at the stripe and Trestman's penchant for handing goal-line carries to someone other than his feature back suggest Bush is slated for plenty of short-yardage and goal line work this season.
