Despite Rumours, saints don't plan to release Bush
 
Despite speculation to the contrary, Saints plan to retain Bush

Running back Reggie Bush remains very much in the Saints' plans, despite an $8 million salary in 2010, and the team has made no attempts to ask him to restructure, according to league sources.
The Saints have had several conversations with agent Joel Segal, who also represents star New Orleans safety Darren Sharper, a potential free agent, and have not broached the subject of altering Bush's salary.



Bush, who was a key contributor for New Orleans in the playoffs, remains in the Saints' budget following their post-Super Bowl organizational meetings. Many league executives believed the Saints might ask Bush to restructure his deal or ultimately release him in an uncapped year, getting out from a high first-round contract with largely a situational player to this point in his career. But that does not appear to be the case, with the start of free agency now essentially a week away.
New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said Thursday that the club has tendered qualifying offers to 13 players slated to become restricted free agents next week. While there is still time to do so, one of Bush's backfield mates, Mike Bell wasn't among them.
The players offered tenders were offensive tackles Jammal Brown, Jermon Bushrod and Zach Strief; safeties Roman Harper, Chris Reis and Usama Young; defensive linemen Remi Ayodele and Anthony Hargrove; wide receivers Lance Moore and Courtney Roby; linebacker Marvin Mitchell; tight end David Thomas; and running back Pierre Thomas.
The Saints declined to disclose the terms of the offers.
Players may wait to see if they receive better offers from other teams before agreeing to contracts with the Saints. If another team offers more money, the Saints have the right to match it.


We all know how valuable bush is, especially if he continues playing like he did at the end of last year

Sweet. The ball is rolling on free agency. I think I like what the Saints are doing here. I see many of those tendered qualifying offers returning to New Orleans next year. Even if they don't, there will be draft picks out the wazoo.

I agree with that, but still would like to see him back. He's a good roll player.

Yeah and not wearing the right cleats might have been the problem.

I have given this a fair amount of thought and I have to agree.

Thought he knew better than the coaches in Denver and that got him run out of town. Talked a lot about that this season and sounded like that was a thing of the past.

I find it hard to believe that proper footwear for field conditions was'nt discussed ad nauseum so he may have outsmarted himself again.

There is also that whole LT thing too......

Keep the team together. They did it once they can do it at least 2 or 3 more years. If we keep the same guys together they will only get better. Reggie, Reggie, Reggie.

When it comes to Bell it is mainly a thing of disipline. You have to be a complete idiot going out on the field without cleats.
