Rafael Bush making it cool to wear No. 25 Saints jersey again
 
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE, La. — Rafael Bush refuses to believe he’s anything more than a player trying to make an NFL roster with less than two weeks to go before final cuts hit the league.

There’s only one problem with that line of thinking – he has become, in one short year, an integral part of the Saints’ special teams.
In other words, he’s making it cool again to wear your No. 25 Bush Saints jersey.

“I just want to play, man,” Bush said this week. “Wherever they throw me out on the field, I’m comfortable with playing. I just want to go out there and make plays and if it’s special teams, I don’t have a problem with that. And if it’s a specific role on defense, I won’t have a problem with that either.”

He led New Orleans with 15 special teams tackles and had a fumble recovery in coverage in 2012. He finished the season with 13 stops on defense and had interception he returned for 40 yards as he saw more time on the field late in the season.

This preseason, meanwhile, he has spent time with the first-team defense in one of their secondary-heavy substitution packages, covering the deep part of the field while Malcolm Jenkins and Roman Harper move closer to the line of scrimmage.

If you’re just now noticing him, some of his teammates say it’s about time.

“Raf just has to continue to learn how to play and have confidence in himself and he’ll be just fine,” Harper said. “There’s no saying he can’t do it. He’s physical. He’s fast. He can do all the things. It’s not going to be his ability that holds him back.”

I meant that with Bush's special teams ability, Roby may be expendable.

That may mean Tanner makes the team.
