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.

  • @RonCurtis1 @__jdot__ Not unlikely. Likely. They could sign up to 3 years apart.

  • Carr and Gabe after 2017 season. Probably Carr then Gabe. Mack has fifth option year. No reason for any struggle. https://t.co/wAcD4beHFt

  • With Mack's deal the following year, it's a good idea. https://t.co/DipOg6hsZ9

  • It pushes the big deal up a year, but franchise quarterbacks never play on the tag and Carr will sign before the other guys push market up.
