So, all in all, I think it was a good deal for MIA as well as for the Saints. And I think that if there's someone who lost in that deal it would be Bush himself, but that is hard to estimate because he never entered the FA market and so we can never know what his market value would've been.

If you look at it from that standpoint - the Saints franchise owe gratitude toward Bush for handling the situation as he did, nevermind what he has said since in the media.
Thats my point. Bush had all the leverage to get the most money he could, and he still could have chosen the Dolphins if he wanted to.
Again, we stole that pick, with a Bush assist. We were lucky to get anything at all for him.

Yes, you are correct, but that doesn't change the fact that MIA couldn't know that for sure, and we can't know for sure if MIA was really where Bush wanted to go above any other potential suitors.

They wanted Bush, probably more for his star power than actual ability, and giving up a ST player and a possible draft pick in order to secure the rights to negotiate with Bush without any outside interference was in all likelihood a good decision on their part, which may have actually saved them money or other commodities.

Therefore, I wouldn't say that the Saints "stole" the pick - if there will be any in the end - because it was payment for a service rendered as I described above.

It could be worse for him.... he could have gone to Philly .... LOL

Maybe there is some obscure clause upping the ante to a first round pick ....

I actually expected him to have a good season because of him playing with a "chip on his shoulder." Reggie Bust has been handed everything on a platter his whole life.

According to the AP at the time of the trade;

"The Dolphins completed a trade for Bush on Thursday by negotiating a new contract with him. Saints coach Sean Payton confirmed the deal, which sends reserve safety Jonathon Amaya(notes) to New Orleans and also involves an exchange of undisclosed draft picks."

Dolphins trade for Reggie Bush - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

So it appears the Saints and Miami will exchange draft picks most likely (late round picks) based on Bush's production in Miami.

WHo cares - Anyting we get (with the additon of Sproles) is better than Reggie ever was.

I dont think he handled it well - I think he acted like a spoiled child (which he basically is)

Somewhat depends on how crappy the Dolphins finish the season. The crappier, the better for us as they will be in the higher picks. Right?

Reggie gets touchdowns but he can't alone product wins.
