Default Someone tell me why Reggie Bush would come here????

He wants to be an every down back. Here, he won't.

Does anyone really think Mike or Marvin would be willing to pay Bush the money he would want for the role he would have here, and at his age?


I get why you want him, but can someone tell me why they think it would actually happen?

It's a pipe dream.

A large portion of mock drafts posted lately that include free agent signings have us signing Bush.

Have more wins than the Dolphins?

I really don't know. I'd prefer drafting Giovani Bernard in the 2nd round

We would be on his list:
First, the only playoff team that would look at Reggie is us. Second, the Jets would be the only team he would start as a full time back, their team is filled with drama, here he would likely be the 3rd down back and split carries with Ben, our feature back. Third, he's a west coast offense back. Fourth, money, who would you rather have Jason Alllen or Reggie Bush, the money would be about the same.

Bringing in Bush would give us flexibility in the draft to sign a back we could mold for a year or two before they start (Lattimore).

Ding, Ding, Ding, Ding!

Why wouldn't Reggie Bush go to the Bengals?
  • Without much of a running game, the Bengals have made the playoffs the last 2 years, and 3 of the last 4.
  • Zeitler was a rookie this year, and he should be improved.
  • Boling had his first significant playing time (in his 2nd year), and he should be improved by next year.
  • Robinson should be able to know thoroughly all of the playbook next year, should be stronger, and should start in 2013.
  • If/when the Bengals are able to secure a WR2 in the off-season (free agency or draft), then this will create much better possibilities in the running game.
  • If Reggie Bush was signed as a Bengal, he would be our RB1 with BJGE then becoming a 3rd down specialist (replace B Leonard). Even if the Bengals were to draft Bernard in the draft, Reggie Bush would probably get the lion share of snaps and Bernard would spell Bush.

It's a pipe dream.

Someone who can create there own play & doesn't rely on holes like Green Ellis. Also Bush is a great receiving back..Our offense needs a fast back...Bush could definetly be an every down back here...I think if we had him we would be a force on offense and keep defenses on ther toes.

He'll also contribute in getting a ring with us.

The way I see it our top competition for him would be

Atlanta, Turner is done, Reggie would be a good fit for them.
Miami, Staying is Miami is a strong possibility but they have two young guys who could prevent that.
Colts, They don't really have a special HB. But their defense needs a lot of work.
Packers, Not much money to spend.
Cardinals, They will be nobody's first choice

He isn't going to be an every down back anywhere.

If anyone really thinks Reggie Bush would have to worry about splitting a good number of carries with ANY back we have barring injury is CRAZY.

I mean OK maybe BJGE would get SOME touches. For example lets say we run 35-40 run, screens or passes to backs. Tell me Reggie is not seeing 25 or more of those touches on a consistent basis.

Atlanta- Has Jacquizz Rodgers
Miami- Will likely go with Lamar Miller
Colts- Likely will build through the draft Kenjon Barner comes to mind
Packers- agreed limited cap space
Cardinals- I forgot about them, Whiz out, Beanie out, no QB, no direction

Default Reggie Bush's future with Miami Dolphins looks bleak

Just thought I'd share this.

Impending free agent Reggie Bush told reporters when the season ended that he hoped to re-sign with the Miami Dolphins in part because "there's unfinished business."

He shouldn't get those hopes up too high. According to CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, it's "highly unlikely" that Bush will stay with the Dolphins under a new contract.
General manager Jeff Ireland has invested early-round draft picks in Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller the past two years. With left tackle Jake Long, cornerback Sean Smith, and wide receiver Brian Hartline also due to hit free agency, it doesn't make sense to invest heavily in an aging running back.

While the Dolphins are expected to make Bush a cursory "team-friendly" offer, the smart money is on the versatile back signing a short-term deal with a contender. Turning 28 in March, Bush is a long shot for a final mega contract even after averaging more than 1,000 rushing yards in two seasons with the Dolphins.
Keep an eye out for the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions, two teams known to be seeking a more dynamic back with pass-catching ability and the outside speed to complement short-yardage pounders BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Mikel Leshoure. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...ns-looks-bleak

I wouldn't mind signing Bush and drafting a high round rookie. Not sure I'd spend alot on him though.

You are correct. They are about a mill over cap. http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2012...t-cap-strategy

If we sign Bush, I doubt we draft a running back, especially not high.

Who knows, though, because we have so few needs that, if the right guy's there, we'd snag him.

I thought about this and it's good that "experts" are thinking about it, too, because I think he could give us a new dimension to our offense in pass catching out of the backfield.

However, he's 27 and doesn't exactly have the homerun ability that I'm looking for.

dolphins Re: Reggie Bush's future with Miami Dolphins looks bleak

I'd sign Bush to a friendly (maybe more than what the Dolphins would offer) contract for two years. The guys a great pass catcher, return man, and playmaking speedster.

Still he has the nagging injury history and he's getting up there in age. He ended up being what I thought he'd be, a big playmaker that can't quite stay healthy enough to be an all time great Running Back.

bengals Re: Reggie Bush's future with Miami Dolphins looks bleak

I really hope they don't go for Bush.. the guy will be 28 when the season starts, and has had about 30 injuries in his career, and about 1,450 carries/catches/punt returns already in wear and tear.

I still hope they sign Chris Ivory, who is 3 years younger that bush, has about 1,200 less touches of wear and tear, and the same if not at this point in their respective careers better home run ability than Bush. He'll also be looking for a hell of a lot less money than Bush looking for his payday.

Then they can draft a RB high who can be your feature back, Ivory can come in to give that back breathers and you don't lose the explosive home run ability, and then BJGE can get goal line/3rd and 1 carries. Not to mention then you actually have some talented RB depth rather than 1 bell cow, and then a whole lot of trouble if that guy goes down.

I love the idea of Bush to team with Green Ellis in 2013. Then, I would:
1. Not resign Leonard and use Bush as the 3rd down back.
2. Not resign Scott
3. Draft a 3 down back in round 2a (Lacey or Bernard)
4. Draft Lattimore in round 3
5. Determine if Lattimore is healthy enough to contribute in 2013 early, if not PUP him for first 6 weeks of the regular season. If he is healthy, cut Peerman after training camp.

This would give us some youth to team with the vets at RB. It would give us a guy capable of big plays on 3rd down in Bush. It would make us a better offensive team short and long term as the young guys develop and learn their craft (like blocking and picking up NFL blitz's).

The beauty of the Bus pick up is I don't see a team giving him feature back money so we cshould be able to sign him for 2.5 to 3.5 million per year for a 2 or 3 year contract.

Who in there right mind would sign Bush, Draft Lacy/Gio and then after that go and waste a 3rd round pick on a guy that busted up both knees bad and might not even play this year? You dont waste a 3rd on a guy like that, honestly even if he could play this year it would be overkill at that point.

Nobody is going to give him the feature back job he supposedly wants. And free agent HBs haven't commanded massive contracts in recent years.

I think he would be well worth whatever it would cost to get him here.

I wouldn't be opposed to signing Reggie.He has played pretty well in the past 2-3 seasons,catches the ball well, and creates a mismatch on the outside.
That being said can probably fill that need much cheaper in the draft.

My guess is Lattimore may not even be available in the 3rd round if he progresses well by the draft. He will be 7 months post surgery at that point. He said in an interview he starts running this week. There is a very good chance he may be back to full speed by a pro day a week prior to the draft.

As fo injured college stud ruuning backs, McGahee had a terrible knee injury in January and was drafted 23rd in the April draft. This is why I think Lattimore could be a steal in round 3. Especially if we have the luxary of having him redshirt a year by possibly not forcing him back early. We have the picks and the depth to take a chance on him. Look at some of other 3rd round picks of late and you will find they have had little to no production so it is not like a 3rd round pick has starred for us at any point recently.
