More Reggie Bush talk
By Tim Kavanagh
Recently, a report indicated that Reggie Bush and his camp are by the Miami Dolphins' actions (or, inaction) regarding him thus far this offseason. Bush amassed over 2,000 yards rushing over the course of the past two seasons, and he's obviously of the belief that such a player would be of value to his incumbent team.
At this point, it appears far more likely that Bush will be plying his trade elsewhere in 2013, and already he's been linked speculatively to teams like the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions and New York Jets. As ESPN AFC East blogger James Walker writes, this is just a case of a player encountering the reality of the business of the NFL:

"Bush is finding out that the NFL is a tough business. Bush really wants to return to Miami. He’s done everything right the past two years, such as being as leader in the locker room and rushing for more than 2,000 yards in that span. But the Dolphins aren’t as fond to Bush returning. They have two running backs who are cheaper and younger in Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. The Dolphins feel they can handle the load. Miami may offer Bush a team-friendly contract. But unless Bush is willing to take something below market value, he may have to find a new team."
