NFL Free Agency: Miami Dolphins "Highly Unlikely" to Bring Back Reggie Bush


The Super Bowl is less than a week away but for the 30 teams not involved in the big game, their eyes are set on getting to there next season. For some teams, the rebuilding process is going to be long and hard but for others, the quest to the Super Bowl is just a few free agents away from being achievable. One of those guys hitting the market will reportedly be Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush.

Reggie Bush’s ability to make explosive plays and contribute on special teams will lead to a nice market forming for him, I’m sure, and it’s highly unlikely he stays with Miami, sources said

The Dolphins are ironically looking for playmakers this offseason, but they feel they have enough depth behind Bush that they can let him walk and pick up a third string back in either free agency or the draft. Both Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller sat behind Bush on the Dolphins depth chart last season and both filled in nicely when Bush missed time.

Bush will likely land on a “contender” next season, as he’s still too much explosive upside to pass up. The Green Bay Packers struggled to get a running back that fit this season and if Bush were to be added to Aaron Rodgers arsenal, Green Bay becomes even more dangerous. Another landing spot for Bush could be with the St. Louis Rams, who are in need of a flashy playmaker at running back who can complement and even take over for Steven Jackson.

Pittsburgh is another option for Bush when he hits the market this offseason with Detroit, Jacksonville and Arizona all likely giving him a jingle as well. While Bush hasn’t taken his game to a consistent level of elite-ness yet, he’s still a solid starter which means New England, New York, Chicago and Philadelphia are less likely destinations for the running back.

Bush will no doubt command serious attention when he hits the open market, but wherever he goes, the expectations will be the highest they’ve ever been in his career.

    Now that Dallas has USC coaches they should recommend and try to sign free agent Reggie Bush. Dallas drafted Felix Jones and he has done NOTHING, he is the WORST. Could of drafted Jamaal Charles in the same draft but 3rd round and he continues to play in Pro Bowls, average over 5 yards a carry with several 1,000 yard seasons, he even won a National Championship with Vince Young in 2005. Other players the scouting team did not recognize Chris Johnson and Rashard Mendenhall. Reggie Bush would be a GREAT compliment with De Marcco Murray they would have their version of Thunder and Lightning!!! Oh I forgot Jason Garrett the Head Coach they wont make any good footbal decisions. He will LOSE AGAIN he can’t draft, develop or even Lead al he is a Puppet on Strings, BORN LOSER. He cut Super Bowl Lineman Leonard Davis and did not consider any of the 4 Texas Longhorns who will be playing in this years Super Bowl. Also how many more Texas Longhorns played in the Pro Bowl the Dallas Cowboysseemed to only have Jason Witten. Dallas Cowboys just don’t like Texas players that is too bad because they are losing alot of supportive fans and revenue from the loyal Tx fans!!!
