Reggie Bush plans to lead the league in rushing. Before he can do that, he needs to persuade the Dolphins to give him the kind of work that would allow him to gain more yards than the rest of the league’s running backs.
Showing up for offseason workouts likely would help him achieve that goal.
Jeff Darlington of NFL Network reported earlier the Bush was a no-show for Tuesday’s Organized Team Activity session. Coach Joe Philbin declined to provide a reason for Bush’s absence when meeting with the media.
“I don’t want to comment, I will talk about anyone who was here and what they did, but I am not going to talk about guys who were not here,” Philbin said.
It’s a smart approach, if the goal is to avoid being accused by the NFLPA of saying anything to suggest that the workouts aren’t voluntary. Still, it’s unknown why Bush wasn’t present.
Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post reports that Bush indicated on his Twitter page that he was in Las Vegas during the Memorial Day weekend. On Monday night, Bush went Helen Boucher, declaring that “Vegas is the devil!“
Joe Philbin apparently would agree.
