Michael Bush to Giants: Why Ex-Raiders RB Makes Sense in New York

Michael Bush may be the most sought after backup running back this offseason after two impressive seasons for the Oakland Raiders in place of oft-injured starter Darren McFadden.

With an uncertain future facing running back Brandon Jacobs as a member of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants, one cannot ignore how good the former Louisville product would look in the colors of Big Blue.

Due a roster bonus on March 17, Jacobs and the Giants have yet to come to an agreement on a restructured contract which could signal the end of their seven-year relationship.

Jacobs’ potential release will open a hole at the running back position that will need to be filled. While guys like Da’Rel Scott and DJ Ware—both already on the roster—might be easy assumptions, Bush’s resume as a player in the Raiders’ rotation of backs should give the Giants plenty of reasons to consider him when overlooking their options.
