Running back Michael Bush will back up Matt Forte instead of Darren McFadden _ and get a lot more money in the process.
Bush signed a four-year contract worth $14 million, with nearly $7.8 million guaranteed, according to the Chicago Tribune. That represents the figure Bush would have been paid by the Raiders had they decided to franchise him instead of safety Tyvon Branch.
Forte has been franchised by the Bears but wants a long-term deal.
Bush’s departure leaves Taiwan Jones as the backup for McFadden. Both players had injury issues last season.
