Reggie Bush and the Saints to Part Ways … Or Not

Posted: April 28, 2011 in Basketball, Football, Uncategorized

With the Drafting of Heisman Trophy Running Back Mark Ingram in the 1st Round of the 2011 NFL Draft, 28th Overall; the New Orleans Saints have all but confirmed what many suspected … Reggie Bush will be a former Saint when the 2011 Season starts.  It has long been known that the only way for Bush to return would be to negotiate a new contract for a much lower $$$ figure, something he has been unwilling to do, and rightfully so. Bush has given everything of his being to the Saints organization, he embraced the community when nobody else did (even before Drew Brees adopted the city), and he gave his body to the team every chance he got, even if it often meant endangering his career to pick up an extra acrobatic yard. Yet this is a business, and it is thus that Who Dat Nation THANKS Bush for his years of service, and wishes him well wherever he goes (Seattle with his former USC Head Coach Pete Carroll???).

Bush posted the following to his Twitter account as the 1st Round of the Draft ended, surely a foreshadowing of what is about to become official:

Unless of course he was talking about the Hornets losing to his hometown Lakers to tonight, and being eliminated in 6 games in the 1st Round of the NBA Playoffs?!?!?! Time will certainly tell!!!

That was Thursday, this is Saturday: 

Expect Pierre Thomas to be Traded or Cut despite having signed a new contract after the season. That new 4 yr deal only means that anyone trading for him doesn’t need to worry about re-signing or extending him, he’s locked in at what was a hometown discount to stay a Saint. Bush, Ivory, and Ingram are the trio that will make-up the Saints Backfield in 2011!!!
