Reggie Bush speaks...

wwltvsports
When asked if he felt he earned the $8 million this year, Bush intimated that he wasn't sure, citing injuries & amount of touches...

wwltvsports
Said Bush: "Obviously I donít think I was able to live up to those expectations from a money standpoint. It sucks and itís disappointing."

wwltvsports
But Bush said he knows he can be a back that is a $100 million running back. "I can give you $100 million worth if given the opportunity."

wwltvsports
When asked if Bush would be back in N.O. playing for $11.8 million next year, he said, "Common sense would tell you probably not"

wwltvsports
But Bush said over and over and over again that he wants to do whatever is necessary to stay in New Orleans w/ the #Saints, including...

wwltvsports
(more Bush) renegotiating his contract whatever way works best 4 both parties. "You have to be fair to whatever the market sets," Bush said.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Love reggie, but he will have to rework the deal below 2-3 million. I dont see it as productive, if his money cost us losing PT or Moore, by not getting them into a contract. PT and Moore have constantly produced.

The question isn't whether he's willing to take a pay cut... but how much of it is he willing to take? Is he really willing to take at least half a pay cut from what he made last season to stay?

"I can give you $100 million worth if given the opportunity."

I'm glad he's confident but I don't think so. He was coming off one of his most promising performances the past couple of season coming into last week's game only to fail to live up to expectations.

I'd almost garrote the HO is more worried about losing Moore, or PT. IF he doesn't fit with their #'s he has to go. I cant remeber when PT didnt show, and even so PT is a brilliant 2nd RB or could be a stat RB, Moore is always a show also. We really need bush, but hes one we can survive without, he needs to understand that. You cant just show sometimes and expect that kind of money, as strato said 2-3 mill hes in, otherwise welcome to buffalo

I believe this will turn out to be a good thing all the way around.He'll be payed a reasonable amount of pay with potential bonuses attached for achievements.Reggie understanding he needs to live up to his pay rate says he isn't swole headed (how can he be). Mickey finalizes a fair deal once again!I'm glad Reggie didn't take the low road;Although the deal is not done, I'm feeling good about his comments and still believe he still has a chit load of upside!!Bobby Hebert pretty much said he needs more leg strength to break more tackles.
