Earlier this month, reports out of Miami indicated running back Reggie Bush was confused about the Dolphins’ lack of interest in re-signing him this offseason.
Bush can stop wondering. General Manager Jeff Ireland told Mike Florio on PFT Live Thursday that the two sides have spoken.
So there is interest, although Bush may now choose to be confused about the level of interest. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins don’t want to give Bush a raise from the $5 million he made in 2012 and that they probably aren’t willing to even match that salary since they’d like to see Lamar Miller carrying a bigger load in the backfield in 2013. If Bush’s price were to settle in a place where Miami’s comfortable, then he would have a chance to return.
Until there’s more of a sense of the overall market for Bush, it’s hard to make any prediction on where that price will settle. So, for now, Bush’s return to the Dolphins still feels like an unlikely outcome.
