The final hurdle to a trade between the Saints and Dolphins was cleared when running back Reggie Bush reached agreement with Miami on a new two-year contract, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter Thursday.
New Orleans and Miami had agreed to a trade if and when Bush agreed to a new deal. The Dolphins and Joel Segal, Bush's agent, worked into the early-morning hours to produce the needed agreement. Bush will fly to Miami at some point and sign his new contract to make the trade official.
The Dolphins have been seeking a running back to pair with second-round draft choice Daniel Thomas.
This trade is good news for Daniel Thomas owners. We knew the Dolphins would add a runner, but adding Reggie Bush doesn't threaten early down work nearly the way a guy like Ahmad Bradshaw would have. Other big winners are Pierre Thomas & Lance Moore in New Orleans as well as Bush himself, who should see an increase in touches in the Miami offense.
