Dolphins running back Reggie Bush isn’t going to meet his goal of leading the league in rushing this season and it doesn’t look like he’ll realize his goal of landing a new long-term deal with the Dolphins either.

There haven’t been any talks about a new deal so far this season, raising the likelihood that Bush is playing his final games with Miami. Bush admitted that his uncertain future has been on his mind of late.

“It’s getting pretty late. It’s getting pretty late,” Bush said, via Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald. “It’s a little uneasy and unsure, but at the same time, exciting, because you know there are opportunities out there. I’d love to stay here, but part of me says, ‘well, there’s nothing been on the table quite yet.’ I’m remaining optimistic.”

Bush has 791 rushing yards and 227 receiving yards this season, putting him on pace for similar numbers than he had in 2011 for the Dolphins. He wants to be the clear-cut feature back for a winning team and said that those things are more important to him than money, although that might not make it any easier for him to find the gig he desires in a league that has fewer teams running their offenses that way.
