Miami a Possible Landing Spot for Saints RB Bush?


It’s no secret that the Dolphins have an interest in finding help at the RB spot, more so with the futures of both Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams in question.

One name that popped up Friday of interest is Saints running back Reggie Bush, who has been rumored to be on the way out of New Orleans since the team picked up Mark Ingram in the draft.

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports wrote that back before the lockout, the Saints allowed Bush to try and explore a deal that would get him out of New Orleans and to a new team.

The Dolphins, along with the Steelers, Giants and Seahawks were names the piece brought up as teams that would have interest right away in Bush.

In 60 career games, Bush has rushed for just 2,090 yards and 17 touchdowns, and has just 106 carries in 22 games over the last two seasons.

Saints head coach Sean Payton uses the versatile Bush in a variety of ways, and the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner has caught 294 passes for 2,142 yards and 12 touchdowns, though his production has declined over the past four seasons as injuries have kept him from playing a full season.

So is Bush a fit with the Fins? While he might never be an every down back, he could fit nicely with another 1-2 back system for the Dolphins in 2011.
