According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, running back Michael Bush will be visiting with the Patriots.

As Rapoport mentions, the Pats are still looking for another running back, as LeGarrette Blount left for Pittsburgh, and Knowshon Moreno signed with the Dolphins. Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen, New England’s starting duo, looks to be deadly, but the Patriots still need better depth behind them. Like Blount, Bush is a physical back, someone that could really flourish in Tom Brady‘s offense.

I don’t see running back as a top need for the Pats, but they certainly need to address it before the regular season begins. They have other priorities to attend to, but they can’t forget about the backfield.

In his six year career (played with the Bears, and the Raiders), Bush has racked up 809 carries, 3,250 yards, and 29 touchdowns.
