Reggie Bush, Dolphins agree to two-year deal


Reggie Bush is set to join the Miami Dolphins, agreeing to a new contract with the team that allows them to complete a trade with the New Orleans Saints.

The Dolphins and Bush’s agent, Joel Segal, worked overnight and into the morning to hammer out a two-year deal, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the Saints and Dolphins agreed to the terms of a trade late last night.

Bush will now head to Miami, take his physical, sign his contract and officially become a Dolphin.

In five seasons since the Saints took him with the second overall pick in the 2006 NFL draft, Bush had 524 carries for 2,090 yards and 17 touchdowns, plus another 294 catches for 2,142 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.

  1. Any word on what “the terms” of the trade were? I’m just curious as to what Miami gave in return for his services.

  2. Think that could be a good fit for Reggie. A friend of his here in SD told me he also liked the St. Louis Rams – pairing up with a big back – Stephen Jackson – and a great QB – the old Oklahoma lad.

  3. Excellent!! Just make sure he is not overused and that he is used to his strengths. I think Thomas can learn a heck of a lot from Bush in the receiving game like S Jax did from Faulk. I would like to see the screen pass back in the Dolphins playbook with interior lineman who can now pull and an OC who is not set in his old ways, really really old ways.

  4. Production just wasn’t there. He had some great games but not consistently and too many injuries.

  5. Sorry to see him go. Made a bigger contribution than most realize.
    Thank you and good luck, Reggie.

  6. From the hype this guy got coming out of college as the second coming of the football gods, and who he was compared to…In my mind, he fits on one of the all time NFL’s bust teams.

  7. Not a fin fan but good for you guys. He’ll contribute in many different ways.

    On another note, the AFC East is dominating the offseason.

  8. Now go get Orton(lowest int % on deep balls), Vince(highest completion % on deep balls) to start or Bulger to help coach up Henne. If Bulger is the option and the then go get a RG too to help the run game. I personally would like Orton because he is smart and Henne could then be resigned for a relatively low price next season. Pennington taught Henne about the short game now bring in Orton to teach him about the deep ball. Henne will be a late bloomer in his career but can be very very good.

  9. So are they going to say what we got in return? Probably a 5th round draft pick, something completely meaningless but hey now we have plenty of cap room to go and sign special team Linebackers!!!! Watch how this comes back to bite us in the @$$ reggie bashers! If I were him I woulda left too with how you all treated him.

  10. I heard from a couple of reliable people on twitter that it was a 6th rounder.

  11. It’ll make for some interesting discussion in regards to Daniel Thomas and Mark Ingram’s fantasy value now. Ingram’s backfield gets slightly less crowded but we knew all know Bush isn’t an every down back. This could actually increase Thomas’ value because this tells us the Dolphins plan on using him as the work horse.

    What are those, exactly?

  13. Now that people have finally accepted that Bush is a scat-back and not going to change the face of the NFL…and his 9+ ypc were a mirage resulting from the combination of a pro caliber line and way more offensive weapons than most teams to match up…he’s a solid fit. 5-10 carries and 3-5 catches a game, and he will have impact, albeit limited.

    Miami needed speed, and he and Edmund Gates give them that. Now Marshall and Bess aren’t the only two jerseys defenses have to worry about.

    Injury is a major concern with Bush, obviously, and as a Dolfan I certainly hope they hold on to Sheets, who could learn a LOT from Bush and really contribute when Reggie misses time (which he will).

    Still, it looks like a solid move for Miami.

    Of course, they still need to either land Orton or hope Henne takes a big step up, but…a good move to add a necessary part.

  14. Wasn’t Reggie God’s gift to football, and everyone shocked when he was not the first pick in the draft?

  15. I kinda hope we gave up a 2nd round pick. That way we know we don’t have to embarrass ourselves with it in April. Let’s just hope that this highly drafted RB from the Saints turns out to be as productive as the last one we got from them. I would have rather had about a half dozen other FAs including one of our own two. Oh well, he’s a Dolphin now so I wish him all the best.

  16. Only 2 “talents to south beach” jokes? For shame! Here are two more:

    He’d be taking is talents to south beach… if he had any!


    He may be taking his talents to south beach… but not his Heisman!

  17. Hell ya we got reggae bush lol what QB wouldn’t wanna play here with the weapons we now have would be nice to get Todd heap too

  18. Reggie Bush in South Beach? I’ve got a bad feeling about this. I wonder if he’s still getting over Kim…

  19. I heard on the radio this morning the trade was “For a player to be named later”. Obviously not a block buster

  20. First I would like to point out, that I am not a Dolphins fan, but I beleive they will be a much improved team this year. If they get Orton, he would improve their offense, but as a Broncos fan I would tell you that Orton is a player that tries hard, & is pretty consistent, but I’ve always felt he misses something. I don’t know what it is, but when you are talking about QB’s, there is a very fine line that separates “good” from “great”. But all in all, Miami is clearly an improving team.

  21. Wouldn’t it be ironic if the Fins also took Vince Young instead of going after Orton? Playing together after clashing in the 05 championship game. The best game ever played”
