Think you may be right actually. That's a good catch.
With several hundred other guys...
He is a Restricted FA, but they might not tender him due to the 3 other RBs that they have on the roster.
Draft a kid in the 5th or so. Young and hungry. Cheap and will probably give us about as much production.
It would be an ok pick up for us if he comes at a cheap price. I wouldn't want to give much for the guy whose going to back Murray up.
Will Bush be looking for USC kind of money?
We definitely need another RB to split carries with DM, and considering our other needs, it would be great not to have to spend a 3rd or 4th rounder on one. I wouldn't mind Bush, but I think some team with a lot of cap space will pay him a lot more than we'd be willing to spend.
Bush won't be going anywhere as a backup....not yet.
Why not a third round guy that can fit in and accept his role ?
Bush seems like a silly choice to me.
The rookie can grow, learn, and possibly be better than what you have.
Let Tanner and Dumbar compete for the #2.
Draft the #3 in the 4th or 5th round, and let the rookie compete for the #2 with Tanner/Dumbar in case he's good enough to win it.
If that 3-way competition does not help produce 3 backs (I'm confident it will produce the top 2), then look to last minute cuts for veteran fill-ins. I don't see it going this far unless there are injuries early on.
Bring him in
Throw in a tricked out Impala and lowrider bicycle and he's yours...
Fresh legs at the running back position.
We need a nice, cheap mid round rookie to replace Felix.
Just highlighting this post, because it was funny.
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of having a stable of mediocre running backs. Our last 1000 yard rusher was Julius Jones and he barely made it over that mark. If Murray's health is going to be questionable, then we need someone who can come in without taking a huge step back.
Murray is by no means a superstar, but he and Bush would compliment each other nicely; they each bring different things to the table. With Bush's talent as a pass catcher, maybe we can actually convert our red-zone visits into touchdowns. If we have the same exact offense next year, then things are not going to get better, especially when I believe we only scored more than 10 points once before halftime all year.
I would love the idea of Reggie Bush as part of this team. I would just rather not throw all our eggs into Murray's basket.
Yes. I'm tired of all these backs we've had wasting yards on the field. Behind such quality run blocking.
Maybe we can bring back Olawale seeing as how so many were high on him after he put up some numbers in preseason against 3rd stringers.
I have always liked Reggie Bush. He is a very talented and versatile player. I would love to see him catching passes out of the backfield, lining up in the slot and returning. But I agree with the individuals saying we should get a RB late in this draft to save money.
Actually if they pair him with Leshoure, that could be a really good combination there.
