Saints running back Reggie Bush has accepted the fact that whether he stays in New Orleans or plays elsewhere in 2011, there’s no way he’s making the $11.8 million that his current contract calls for him to make.
“This is something that me, my agent and the Saints have to collectively come together to talk about and just come to a meeting point — a happy medium — because obviously there’s going to have to be some type of pay cut,” Bush said. “There’s going to have to be some type of renegotiation.”
It's going to be a crowded backfield in New Orleans if Bush returns, with the newly drafted Mark Ingram paired with the extended Pierre Thomas & Chris Ivory. We would stay away from all Saints RBs in early drafts until we clearer picture.
