Bye Reggie Bush Of New Orleans Saints, Hello Bush The Miami Dolphin
Written by 

Reggie Bush Reggie Bush agreed to a new contract on Thursday morning that allowed the Saints to trade the running back to the Dolphins. 

The Dolphins and Bush's agent, Joel Segal, worked overnight and into the morning to hammer out a two-year deal. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the Saints and Dolphins agreed to the terms on Wednesday night. 

Bush flew to Miami on Thursday to sign his contract and officially become a Dolphin. It is unclear what the Saints are receiving in return, but it should be a fourth- or fifth-round draft choice and more money to re-sign free agents and draft choices. Before the trade, the Saints were $11.7 million under the salary cap. Bush would have counted $16 million against the cap. 

 The Saints had no intention of keeping Bush under the terms of his current contract -- an $11 .8 million base salary and a cap figure of $16 million. 

The Saints part ways with Coach Sean Payton's first draft pick, an injury-plagued college superstar who put up only 2,090 rushing yards since entering the league in 2006. He distinguished himself, however, as one of the NFL's best receiving threats at running back the past five seasons, catching 294 passes for 2,142 yards and 12 touchdowns. He scored 29 touchdowns in his career and lost 19 fumbles. 

On Wednesday the Saints signed Drew Brees and fans favorite wide receiver Lance Moore to a five year contract. Moore posted this tweet: "Welp, it'ws been real new orleans....But let's make the next five years even  more real. I'm coming back, baby!!! # Whodate!" 

Known is known as a possession receiver who doesn't don't mind going over the middle to make tough catches. 

In five seasons with the Saints, Bush struggled to stay healthy. Only once -- in his rookie season --was he able to complete a full 16-game schedule. Last season he played in only eight games because of broken fibula.

In Miami, there's a chance he could be the featured back though he may have to share touches. He could be listed at the top of their depth chart.   

Bush has the potential to be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses with a quarterback who can make adjustments at the line of scrimmage. However, that's not Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne. 

So, for Bush, it’s from Sunset Blvd.  to Bourbon Street to South Beach.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
