Few players have had their activities more heavily scrutinized this offseason than Reggie Bush, who stepped into a social media firestorm when he tweeted that he was enjoying the rest and relaxation provided by the lockout.

But Bush is doing more than just relaxing: He’s also filming a reality show during the lockout. That reality show had him traveling to Danville, Illinois, where he participated in a weightlifting session with players at Schlarman High School. So at least he’s getting some workouts in.

Bush is in Danville because there’s another man named Reggie Bush who lives in Danville, and the Reggie Bush who plays for the New Orleans Saints is participating in an upcoming reality TV show called Same Name. The show has Bush trading places with a construction worker in Danville who’s named Reggie Bush.

Reggie Bush the construction worker has a son, Jacob Bush, who attends Schlarman High, so Jacob and members of the Schlarman football team got to see first hand that Bush is doing more during the lockout than just vacation, rest and relaxing.

    he’s got to do something to stay in the limelite since his on field accomplishments will never take him there.

    Reggie, u should be watching film and learning how to run in a straight line, btwn the tackles so that u stop stutter stepping and going backwards.

    I’m from Danville originally…so this is kind of cool.

    Besides Dick Van Dyke…Gene Hackman and Robin Yount are also from there.

    They should have called it “Same Name, Different Team” because no chance Bush is back in NO this season (assuming there is one).

    If he played football against highschoolers maybe he wouldn’t be so horrible

    “The show has Bush trading places with a construction worker in Danville who’s named Reggie Bush.”

    So Bush will finally have a job.

    Reggie Bush should’ve been a WR, now he’s just the most overrated player in the NFL. The fact that someone thinks we want to watch him on TV without a helmet and pads is sad.

    I bet the other reggie bush wished the overrated reggie bush was still with kim kardashian……

    That would have made great TV

    Good ol’ Reggie. Always finding new ways to stay in the spotlight (as opposed to being productive on a football field).

    Hmmm, practicing with high schoolers. Hopefully his pro teammates won’t have fly on the team jet to fetch him during training camp.
