Miami Dolphins runningback Reggie Bush will be one of the most sought-after free agents this offseason, and it just so happens he plays a position the Bengals are in desperate need of. While BenJarvus Green-Ellis did rush for over 1,000 yards in 2012, the Bengals could never find an adequate backup for Ellis, who is a one-dimensional power back, and doesn’t provide Andy Dalton with a legitimate pass-catching threat out of the backfield.

Bush would fit that role perfectly, and he’ll likely be available this offseason according to Jason LaCanfora:

"Reggie Bush’s ability to make explosive plays and contribute on special teams will lead to a nice market forming for him, I’m sure, and it’s highly unlikely he stays with Miami, sources said."
