The Cincinnati Bengals were reportedly interested with a possible visit if Bush left Detroit this week. He didn't.
Various reports suggested on Tuesday that the Detroit Lions weren't going to allow running back Reggie Bush to leave Detroit without a contract. However if Bush happened to depart without a deal, reports suggested that Bush was going to tour the country visiting various teams, including the Cincinnati Bengals, along with the Arizona Cardinals and Washington Redskins.
Now we can put a close to this file.
According to Pro Football Talk, the Detroit Lions and Bush have agreed to terms, citing an NFL source.

It was a long shot for the Bengals at best. Along with Bush believing that he's still the centerpiece of a rushing offense, he would have been designated the second-part of a two-back system. And it was always suspected Bush's salary demand was somewhat significant, which the Bengals wouldn't pay for a part-time running back in said two-back system.
