The best is yet to come #49ers

The tweet, which was sent out to his more than 3 million followers, received over 4,000 retweets and 5K favorites on the popular social media service.
The 30-year-old played for the New Orleans Saints from 2006 to 2010, the Miami Dolphins from 2011 to 2012, and the Detroit Lions from 2013 until 2014.
Born Reginald Alfred Bush, Jr. on March 2, 1985, the American running back played college ball at the University of Southern California where he was awarded the sport’s most prestigious individual honor, the Heisman Trophy.
He’s also been the recipient of the All-American honors award, not once, but twice. And let’s not forget about his 2010 Super Bowl title, which he picked up while enlisted as a running back for the Saints.
Bush was released by the Lions back on February 25, which means he won’t count against the NFL’s formula for compensatory draft picks.
Last year, he only played in 11 games throughout the season due to a lingering ankle issue.
The nine-year NFL veteran entered the league as the No. 2 overall pick when the Saints drafted him back in 2006.
CSN Bay Area quoted the 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke as having said that “it’s time to sit down and go through the pros and cons and try to make the best decision we can and we’ll have to make the best decision for him.”
Now, it’s time to sit down and go through the pros and cons and try to make the best decision we can and he’ll have to make the best decision for him. He’s going to have options. We’re not the only team interested in Reggie Bush. I promise you that.
