If New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush doesn’t rework his contract to remain with the Saints there is a good chance he’ll get a lot of attention on the open market as a potential slot receiver.
According to Len Pasquarelli of Fox Sports, one NFL executive had the following comments regarding Bush.
“The thing with (Bush) will be timing. You don’t want to run out when free agency eventually starts, and sign a (versatile) back, and then have Bush pop free, because the Saints can’t afford him. You might be kicking yourself for not waiting on Bush, and seeing what his market is out there. So it’s probably going to take some legwork, you know?”
Bush also has more value then many people may think as a change of pace back as well as a return specialist.
Bush may not have lived up to his high draft status but he is a weapon that can be used in many different ways to exploit match ups with opposing defense’s. Most NFL teams love players that can fit more then one role on the field because it enables coaches to be more flexible with play calling.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
