Saints News, 2/26/15: Reggie Bush Back On The Market

New, comments

From Mike Triplett: Former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush was released in a cost-cutting move by the Detroit Lions on Wednesday. Immediately, my Twitter feed filled up with questions about whether Bush might fit back in New Orleans since the Saints were missing that runner/receiver hybrid after trading Darren Sproles last year. It’s not entirely out of the question -- especially if the Saints lose top running back Mark Ingram in free agency and want to add a veteran to their committee approach. But I don’t know if Bush would provide a missing element to New Orleans’ offense that’s significantly greater than incumbent runner/receivers Pierre Thomas and Travaris Cadet. Bush turns 30 next month and has battled injuries over the past two years.
