So last year everyone on this board obsessed about Carl NIcks for 4 straight months. This year it seems to be Bush. As we all hopped on every sports website to see who was signing who, Mike Brown slept in until about noon, had some coffee, watched Matlock, then fell back asleep.

Don't get your hopes up people. We may have a lot of money now, but most of it is going towards extensions.

I'm good on Bush, unless we sign him and draft an early round RB and then bid adieu to Scott and Peerman and/or Leonard.

We have the money to spend. He's one of the better talents out there in free agency, and we need a running back. It makes too much sense, but I highly doubt it based on this teams history of making deals that make sense.

I dont think bush would change the draft at all. Sign bush and still ad a back like Stacy, Dyer, late in the draft

I certainly hope our strategy doesn't involve not drafting a RB until late in the draft. I want one with one of our first two picks whether we sign Bush or not.

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

I am pretty sure Danny Woodhead is a free agent. We could go after him as a cheaper alternative to Bush less carrier touches, but still catches the ball as good or better than Bush. Also Woodhead and BJGE were a pretty good force in New England together. We could then draft a running back with 2b or 3rd round. This is a possible and cheaper resolution to a back that catches the ball and adds an option.

Sign Reggie Bush & sign an OLB...Sign Mj to a one year deal & draft Margus Hunt with our 2nd second round pick.

So did MJ do something to you personally?

Exactly this.

During those 8 seasons, we've had several starting RBs, different starters on the o-line, different TEs and FBs and 2 different RB coaches. Only our o-line coach remained the same.

We won't sign him or any notable free agent. Chances are we will draft a back in the 2nd to mid rounds(im guessing mid), and keep leonard around.

I would love to see Reggie in stripes. It's likely he will get a contract that is more than the Bengals are willing to pay. If that's the case I wouldn't be disappointed with a Felix Jones signing, and still have them get a back in the draft.

We would have to offer him a good amount of money. He played well for Miami the last two seasons he is turning into a nice player.

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.
Chris Ivory makes alot of sense rather than Bush.Chris is younger, less wear, has more years left and will be less money, leaving more dollars for other issues.I believe Chris would fit in better for us. I am all in on chris ivory.

Reggie's a good player and he would help our offense a lot. He can do things no back has been able to here in a long time. Don't understand what the objection would be.

Also, I don't think signing him would necessarily take drafting a RB off the table.

The objection would be signing a near 30-year old RB with injury concerns to a multiyear, multi-million dollar contract when you can draft a comparable version of Bush and use the extra cash to sign players who are more valuable like MJ, Smith, etc. Maybe take the $5-7 million it would take to get Bush and sign a LB or S....or both.

They could do all of above if they wanted to. Signing Bush would have no impact on their ability to resign/extend anybody. If you wanna draft "comparable" talent that's fine, but just know that that's going to take your first pick to accomplish.

1) Money--- Bengals have the cap room
2.) Best Team available that actually would take a look at him --- Playoffs last two years
3.) Probably the opportunity to have more carries then any other team willing to sign him

Disagree. This draft is RB heavy and a good player could be had at 37, IMO. Especially when there are bigger needs than another RB. Despite his limitations, BJGE had a good year. If I'm going to go on a spending spree, linebacker and safety is where I look on the outside while locking up my key guys (MJ, Smith, etc.)
