Michael Bush Likely to Remain a Raider

Per Adam Caplann, Michael Bush is almost certain to return to the Raiders in 2011.

Michael Bush spent his entire first season on the non-football injury list  and he wouldn’t have accrued the four seasons necessary to become a free agent.

This conflicts with Jerry McDonald’s report that his first season would count and he would become a free agent if the new rules allow players with four seasons to become free agents.

I trust Jerry McDonald, but I have heard if the rules remained the same under the new collective bargaining agreement he would not become a free agent. There is also the possiblity this provision could be changed in the new labor deal.

  • Preseason is for the young guys that we don't know much about. The vets are coasting. Doesn't tell you much about a team.

  • Preseason means nothing, but it's too hard for some analysts to resist altering regular season projections.
