ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Bush’s time in New Orleans is expected to come to an end. Jon Gruden thought coach Sean Payton would want to pair Bush with Mark Ingram, but it just doesn’t make a lot of sense.
Bush knows he has to take a pay cut from his scheduled $11 million next season, but he may not realize how big a pay cut is coming. Florio and I talked about the issue on PFT Live’s draft extravaganza Friday, and Florio pointed out the Saints may still be willing to pay Bush more than any other team.
Based on his tweet, Bush’s pride may prevent him from returning to a team where he’s clearly no longer the cool, new running back on the squad.
In the clip below, we talk about Bush, the Mark Ingram trade, and the huge bounty the Falcons gave up for Julio Jones.
