There continues to be rumblings that the Cincinnati Bengals are targeting soon-to-be free agent running back Michael Bush this offseason, replacing Cedric Benson who isn't expected to return for 2012. Last week a source told NFL Insider Cecil Lammey, for ESPN Radio in Denver, that he believes Cincinnati will make a run for Bush this offseason. ESPN AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley believes the same. Now we can add ESPN NFL Insider John Clayton to the mix.

Bush is largely favored to fill that "big" short-yardage back that Marvin Lewis coverts and there's a sense of home for the former Louisville Cardinal.

Free agency kicks off on March 13.
