I'm glad Bush is back. I think he's got potential. Looking at the rest of that list I believe that we can do without almost everyone of them.

I too am glad that we have him on the team another year... Kid just needs some more on-field time.

It sounds like New Orleans Saints safety Rafael Bush has re-signed with the Saints as Bush was one of the team's three exclusive rights free agents. Bush said via Twitter on Monday morning, "Resigning with the saints for another year #whodat."

Bush quickly became one of the Saints' special teams standouts after being acquired off waivers from Denver in early September. Bush picked up 18 total tackles, one interception and one forced fumble.

He did really well. I hope we keep Bushrod and Robinson...not a Strief fan. Mack and McBride would be nice to keep as well.

We may have locked him up due to Harpers contract. Bush is probably a decent option if we lose Harper.

I really like Harper, but not at 7 million in this scheme, and not when we're 30 million over the cap. We have to downgrade somewhere and this is a 3 million dollar downgrade that doesn't hurt us that much.

I agree. Feels like they might be flirting with the thought of letting Harper go or having him restructure which I thought he should have done last season anyway.

and Roby, he is special teams captain for obvious reasons.

I would add Roby, since he is one hell of a ST player, and maybe subtract Bushrod because of the salary he's undoubtedly looking for. And I'm on the fence with Galette, but if Ryan thinks he will fit his system and price (tender) won't be too much over the minimum - then I'd like to see him get re-signed also, and it's kind of the same deal with Casillas.
