Rafael Bush is looking forward to having fun again now that he's back with the New Orleans Saints.

The veteran safety experienced a run to the postseason with the Detroit Lions in 2016, but being with a new team led to some stressful situations as he made the adjustment following four years in New Orleans.

"Everything was so serious for me in Detroit," he said last week. "Coming into a new team, trying to earn everybody's trust and just trying to figure things out and not really knowing anybody and just trying to find your way, I was kind of uncomfortable at times. It was just my personal experience; nothing somebody had done to me.

"It took me some time to settle in. Being here, being somewhere you're comfortable where you've been before, they know you upstairs, players know you in here, it's kind of easier to get acclimated."

I think they signed him to a offer but we matched the offer or something like that. I could be wrong though.

Yes. That's true. They were bragging on a Falcons site I belong to that they were taking Bush from us and then we matched. I enjoyed that.

Will never understand why we Raphael Bush get out the door and chose to bring in Byrd...

...that move will hang like an albatross about Loomis' and Payton's collective neck no matter how they close the book on their tenures with the Saints...
