Reggie Bush has landed in San Francisco.

The 49ers have signed Bush today, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bush heads to San Francisco after a two-year stint in Detroit that started with a solid 2013 season but ended with a disappointing 2014 season. The Lions cut Bush after the season.

San Francisco will be Bush’s fourth NFL stop, after five years in New Orleans, two in Miami and two in Detroit. At age 30 he’s not quite the playmaker he once was, and he won’t make up for the loss of Frank Gore all by himself. But he can still be a solid contributor in a limited role.

Bush had also drawn interest from the Patriots, who may keep searching for a replacement for the departed Shane Vereen.
