La Canfora - Bush done with Saints

NFL Network analyst Jason La Canfora believes the Saints will part ways with running back Reggie Bush at some this off-season once the league resumes operation.
No other running back — especially a situational one — is making this kind of salary right now. New Orleans is deep in the backfield and moved up to draft Mark Ingram. There will be significant interest in Bush, and I can’t see him back with the Saints, getting six to eight touches at best per game, when he can have 12 to 15 elsewhere.

Projected result: Look for the St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and possibly the New England Patriots all to be interested in Bush’s services once he hits the street.
Bush will never see his 11.8 million dollars with the Saints in 2011. Ultimately it’s likely New Orleans will attempt to re-sign him to a more team friendly deal as they value his versatility inside the offense and his contributions as a punt returner on special teams.

However no ones knows for sure how willing Bush really is to take a pay cut, and perhaps more importantly see his role in the offense diminish even more with the addition of Mark Ingram in compliment to Pierre Thomas.

Bush created a media frenzy with the comments made on his twitter account throughout the off-season. Even though he apologized and maintained his desire to stay with the Saints, his actions seems to indicate otherwise and a move may be imminent.

Just weeks ago Jason Cole broke a story that the Saints allowed Bush to speak to other teams before the lockout, the point being so Bush could gauge other teams interest as well as determining what sort of money he may command on the open market.

The Saints have never been afraid to allow a player to walk and in most cases use this type of procedure to prove the deals they offer are fair to market standard. Bottom line is if Bush does not re-sign with the Saints, he will be cut in respect to his monstrous cost against the salary cap.

I think Payton wants him back, but does Reggie want to play elswhere for more money and more touches?

I doubt that Reggie will sign elsewhere, mainly because no team will be willing to pay him more than Loomis would.

So don't look for Reggie on the waiver wire anytime soon. As far as LaConfora is concerned, he is just going out on a limb in the hope that he is right eventually. Then he can say "See, I told you so."

I agree with ya Commish and my only wish in life is to have Charlie Brown sign with the Falclowns.

I bet somebody will splurge on Reggie... all it takes is one. Obviously I'd like to see Reggie stick around because of the matchup nightmares he can create, but honestly, I think the bigger reason I want him to stay is that I'm scared that if he leaves he'll magically "put it all together" and haunt us down the road. Probably unrealistic to expect that given we have a pretty big sample size on him, just a fear.

Actually I think LaCanfora is pretty well respected if memory serves. I'll just say I give him a good deal more credibility than I do most others.

At any rate, I can see Reggie leaving or staying. I'm pretty sure Loomis already knows to tell the truth. Neither he nor Payton are going to get caught off guard one way or the other.

As for me, I hope he stays, but I'm sure I've said that in at least 10 other threads since the offseason/lockout started. The truth is he's a luxury we can't afford at 11 million, but then again, neither can anyone else...

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I'm not so sure about that...I'm actually not sure of anything...because I don't know what is going-on inside of RB's head. With that said, my belief is that Loomis will not offer as much as someone else will...not after drafting Ingram. They will have to pay him (Ingram), too, you know.

If he stays in NO it will be because he doesn't care about the money and just wants to stay a Saint...and I can't recall anyone in history doing that. This isn't the biggest media market in the world and someone like Reggie can make megabucks outside of the field in a larger market...even if he isn't racking up the stats like other players. He has already created his "persona", IMO.

Whether you think you can or think you can't...you're right!
