How much of a salary cut will Bush take to stay with the Saints?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The Saints offer will be 3-4 for 3-4 years with a bonus. The muddy will come from the other suitors who may sweeten the deal a lot. This is Reggie's last BIG offer. He may have to take the money ...

This is Reggie's last BIG offer. He may have to take the money if someone offers 5 or 6, I would.

He's gone. He's a 4th string RB and situational player only for the Saints. He will get eqaul to more money and get a shot at being the #2 guy somewhere else. It is what it is. Thanks Reggie. Good luck!

He didn't collect much of his first (now second) contract. Why not sign him to another?



True. So who would offer him "guaranteed money"

trade'm player - who would u get? one cap hog for another? with is injury history? there has to be a fool out there some where to take the bait. hmmmm al davis and his love for speed . Too bad there cap is so screwed up. Bush would put a lot fans in the seats.

trade'm picks - what picks? talk of a third is not worth it. not with the new cba in place and it's cap friendly signing of draft picks. That increases his value. Second round pick is now the min. and a conditional performance pick. It better have a clause of how low that second round pick can be.

keep'em - i would rather see him resign and get his head and wallet out of the clouds. The saints would do reggie a big favor by getting a KR/PR to take that load off his shoulders.

I saw on rotoworld that Bush's agent said he wouldn't take a cut and that St. Louis or Philly were both looking.

You know what would be funny... if the Bucs took their 60 mil in cap and signed the majority of our free agents. If you can't beat 'em, sign 'em.

I could definitely see how Bush would fill a role and compliment Blount over there. Never thought about it before but it makes sense. I can also see them shelling out big dollars to get a veteran productive receiver like Moore.

Oh my I didn't think of that. They could over-pay a few of our guys and weaken us in the process. Thats brilliant. Bush, Harper, Moore, Bushrod, and Shanle all as Bucs?

That would suck
