Reggie Bush Bound for 49ers

Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- According to ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, San Diego native, and former USC star Reggie Bush is set to return to California.  Bush has agreed to sign with the San Francisco 49ers.

Bush played in 11 games last season, with only 76 carries for 297 yards and two touchdowns. He also had 40 receptions for 253 yards. Bush kept trying to come back throughout the season but kept getting reinjured.

Bush was drafted by the New Orleans Saints with the No. 2 pick in the 2006 draft. Bush was a productive player when healthy and won the 2010 Super Bowl with the Saints, however, he never fully lived up to expectations in New Orleans after a successful college career with the Trojans. He won the 2005 Heisman Trophy, but later returned it after USC was sanctioned for NCAA violations during his time in college.

Lions Cut RB Bush, Packers Cut LB Hawk

Leon Halip/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The top two teams in the NFC North have released two of their most prominent players.

The Detroit Lions will part ways with running back Reggie Bush and the Green Bay Packers have released inside linebacker A.J. Hawk.

Hawk was the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft by the Packers. He spent the last nine seasons with the team and is the franchise’s all-time leading tackler with 1,118.

"A.J. is a consummate Packer and we are grateful for all that he has given and how he represented the organization over the past nine seasons," Packers general manager Ted Thompson said in a statement.

The move frees up $3.5 million in cap space for Green Bay.

Bush, who signed a four-year deal with the Lions in 2013, could not stay healthy. He played in 25 games in two seasons with Detroit, missing five this past season as he dealt with a nagging ankle injury. The move frees up $1.7 million in cap space.

The Packers (12-4) won the NFC North last season when they defeated the Lions (11-5) 30-20 in Week 17.

(NEW ORLEANS, La.) -- Amid Darren Sharper's legal proceedings for rape accusations a former teammate has been accused of spiking drinks.

Sharper's former New Orleans teammate Reggie Bush has been implicated by a co-defendant for dropping ecstasy in women's drinks in a Las Vegas nightclub several years ago.

Brandon Liccardi, who is also being charged with multiple counts of rape, says he witnessed Bush, now a member of the Detroit Lions, drug multiple women, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate.

According to the indictment Liccardi stated:

“OK, um, I was in Vegas about three years ago and um, Reggie Bush put Molly in Champagne. He was handing out 'Molly' on the dance floor to girls. Handing it out. Like giving it to them,” Licciardi said.

“And how do you know that?” asked James O’Hern, an investigator for the DA’s Office.

“[Because] I saw it with my own eyes,” Licciardi responded.

Sharper and his co-defendants face charges across multiple states, including Arizona and California.

Bush denies the allegations.

Cutler completed 27 of 47 passes for 317 yards, two touchdowns, three interceptions and a fumble in the loss.
"We were feeding off of each other," Lions safety Louis Delmas said. "And although they got a couple of touchdowns at the end there, we felt that we beat them. I give credit to my coaching staff and to my conditioning. They gave us the right calls to make plays."

Reggie Bush Expected to Miss A Few Weeks

National Football League(NEW YORK) -- Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was already off to one of his best seasons in the NFL, but his career-setting season will have to take a pause. Bush is expected to miss a few weeks with a knee injury.

According to the Palm Beach Post, Bush took a helmet to the left knee that could cause him to miss at least a few weeks. Despite the injury and location, Bush's injury is not considered to be season-ending. He is expected to make a near full recovery.

This will be a tough blow to the Dolphins offense. This will put more pressure on rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill to perform at a higher level. The team ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing yards per game, but just 25th in passing yards per game.

For Bush personally, this injury will likely keeping him from reaching his personal goal he set for himself heading into the 2012 season. Bush made it known multiple times that his goal was to lead the NFL in rushing.

In his first season with the Dolphins, Bush ran for 1,086 yards after never rushing for more than 581 yards in a single season during his five years with the New Orlenas Saints.

Alex Smith Meeting With Dolphins

Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(MIAMI) -- Free agent quarterback Alex Smith is meeting with the Miami Dolphins today.

Smith, who led the 49ers back into the playoffs in 2011, is now looking out for himself since the club worked out free agent quarterback Peyton Manning last week.

Both Smith and Manning are represented by agent Tom Condon and CAA Sports.

"This is the NFL. I guess nothing surprises me anymore," Smith told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Sunday.  "I never thought a year ago (Peyton) Manning would be a free agent either.  I'm never surprised by anything."

San Francisco was 13-3 with Smith last year who earned $4.9 million in base salary in 2011 and earned a $1 million bonus for reaching the playoffs.

Smith was on the same high school football team with current Dolphins running back Reggie Bush.
