New Orleans Saints drop the ball by handling Reggie Bush with kid gloves

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I have issue with Reggie not being there. If Reggie was commited to the team and was willing to take the paycut and do what is in the best interest of the team, he would have been there right beside ...

I have issue with Reggie not being there.

If Reggie was commited to the team and was willing to take the paycut and do what is in the best interest of the team, he would have been there right beside Drew. Oh yeah, and helping foot the bill with the millions of dollars he got (Note, I didn't say earned) from the past 5 years.

If Reggie really beleives he is one of the elite RB's in the NFL, he should have been there trying to make himself better.

Hell, if you think your job might be at stake, would you be doing everything in your power to show your boss-bosses, that; "Hey, I'm still useful. I am the guy you need to keep!"?

Some of these guys need moral assistants more than Agents.

The leverage to negotiate a deal now with Reggie is on the side of the Saints, maybe Reggie knows he will not take as big of pay cut as they are going to ask him to take, thereby validating his "goodbye" tweet. Reggie can have a breakout year, if we have football, by not having to play out of the backfield. He is not a RB, never has been. If he takes the cut, plays in the screen game or as 3-4th option, his speed can earn him the dollars he thinks he deserves. Reggie, take the cut, show what you're worth, then negotiate.

I think it was more or less to say the Saints shouldn't waste their time with such a premadonna......... which I am inclined to agree with.

I don't think there's anything wrong with a coach calling Reggie and telling him that he's still important.

I totally agree that Reggie is acting like a little baby... but I don't see why it's a bad thing to reach out to a player on your team... especially one who helped you win a SB.
