The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft took place tonight and the New Orleans Saints had the 24th overall pick with which they were expected to take a defensive lineman. They did just that by drafting defensive end Cameron Jordan out of the University of California.

To the surprise of many though, the Saints then got back into the first round by trading with the New England Patriots for the 28th pick overall. With that new pick, they selected running back Mark Ingram out of the University of Alabama. His addition to the backfield makes the Saints look awfully dangerous offensively with Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory, and Reggie Bush already on board.

But will they all stay in the Who Dat Nation?

Not long after the final pick of the first found was made by the Green Bay Packers, Reggie Bush went to his Twitter account and sent out a rather interesting message.

"It's been fun New Orleans."

It has been expected since the end of the 2010 season that Bush would need to take a major pay cut in order to stay with the Saints. The running back has gone on record as saying he wanted to stay in New Orleans and was willing to renegotiate his contract to do so. Maybe the drafting of Ingram has made him have a change of heart.

Saints' General Manager Mickey Loomis said before Bush's tweet that "Bush is still a guy they (the Saints) want to keep in the fold."

Now did Bush mean goodbye to the Saints?

Did he mean goodbye to the New Orleans Hornets since they were elimiinated from the NBA playoffs on Thursday night by the Los Angeles Lakers?

It's certainly going to be interesting to see exactly where things go from here.
