Bush's visit is the next step after the Bills first contacted the player's representatives about two weeks ago.

Bush is a 10-year NFL veteran who played five games with San Francisco last year before suffering a season-ending left knee injury when he slipped on the bare concrete bordering the Edward Jones Dome field in St. Louis.

Injuries have been a career-long issue for the second pick in the 2006 draft. Bush has played 16 games in a season just twice, and has been limited to playing 29 games over the past three years.

When adding in his production as a receiver, Bush has surpassed 1,000 yards from scrimmage five times in a career that began with New Orleans and included a two-year stint in Miami.
