Fleur-de-Links - Jan. 11th: Bush Has No Problem With Renegotiating Contract

Props to Reggie Bush for saying today that he knows his contract will need to be renegotiated this offseason. Even he believes that the $11.8 million he's due next year wouldn't be appropriate. He also says that he wants to finish his career in New Orleans. In an age where many athletes in the same situation would be shouting "HELL NO!," it's refreshing to see our man Reggie has such a level-headed outlook on what his salary should be.

In other news, Gregg Williams declines to interview with the Broncos (HOORAY!), Pierre Thomas says everything is cool between him and the front office and expects to stay with the Saints, Drew Brees will NOT require knee surgery (sorry Kenny), and the Panthers hire former Chargers DC Ron Rivera as their new head coach.
