SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Reggie Bush wants to return punts again, and he brought up the idea to the San Francisco 49ers when he joined the team as a free agent this spring.
So, there was Bush catching punts from the machine under a cloudy sky Thursday with his new team. He will begin his 10th NFL season with his fourth team having not been a regular punt returner since his final season for New Orleans in 2010.
"It's amazing how time flies," Bush said after a practice in which he was easy to spot given his bright orange shoes. "I thought I was going to be young forever when I first came into the league. Now, 10 years later it feels like it flew by. Looking back on it, sometimes it still feels surreal that I've been in the league that long and played that long. But I still feel like I have a lot left to give."
