Reggie Bush reminds league he’s still out there and wants to play

In May, Reggie Bush let it be known that he hoped to continue his NFL career but didn’t find any takers as teams filled out their preseason rosters.

That’s remained the case over the first seven weeks of the regular season, but the lack of interest in his services hasn’t dimmed Bush’s interest in continuing to play.

“I want to play this year,” Bush said, via Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com. “I still feel great. I still feel like I have enough left in the tank to play at a high level, but it’s also going to come down to if there’s a need for me on certain teams. And then also, if there is a need, it’s going to have to be a good fit as well. I don’t want to go back in a situation just to go back and play. Obviously want to be in a situation where I can obviously be used the right way, be effective, all those different things.”

Bush ran 12 times for negative-3 yards for the Bills last season and became the first NFL player to finish a year with at least 10 carries resulting in negative yardage. He played five games for the 49ers in 2015 before a torn meniscus ended his season.

If Bush does not get a call this year, he says he’ll stop waiting for one and retire from football.

  1. First player to finish a year with at least ten carries that resulted in negative yardage. Well, at least he’ll have something to tell his grandchildren about.

  2. “I still feel like I have enough left in the tank to play at a high level…”

    Play at a high level?! Why start now?

  3. Reggie played 10 years in the NFL and has a Super Bowl trophy as a major part of that Saints team(he torched Cardinals round 2). He can tell that to his grandchildren also Craniator

  4. Really don’t see the difference between Reggie Bush and Christian McCafferey. The browns, bucs, Colts, and giants could definitely use Reggie if he will take the vet minimum.

    He can also tell his grandchildren about that time Kim Kardashian laid on his back while he did push ups.

    That alone would keep them from ever wanting any ‘pony rides’ from Grampy.

  6. Last year the Bills led the league in rushing. The team averaged 5.8 ypc behind a very good Oline. Reggie Bush had 10+ carries behind the same line and he had negative yards. Reggie it’s time to hang ’em up, no one is going to call.

  7. I love how a bunch of people who never played in the NFL (or likely anywhere) have so much negativity towards someone who would still like to play. I’d rather have a hungry Reggie Bush than a not-so-hungry Duane Brown or Matavius Bryant any day.

  8. This is clearly collusion against Reggie. The NFL and the owners have no right to not have him on a team regardless of his talent level, as professional
    Football is his chosen profession. Roger should spend all of his free time trying to convince teams to sign Bush, even if he doesn’t fit or know their system. I’m completely outraged by this clear and obvious collusion!

  9. Sorry Reg, but it’s fairly obvious to EVERYONE that you are #blackballed, just like CK! Now, where’s Geragos when you need him?

    And gave him herpes.

  11. “First player to finish a year with at least ten carries that resulted in negative yardage. Well, at least he’ll have something to tell his grandchildren about.”

    Right after he shows them his Super Bowl ring!

  12. The Bills were the NFL’s best rushing team last year. Reggie set an NFL record by being the first RB with 10+ carriers to end the season with negative yards. That’s all you need to know.

    You don’t see the difference? Throw in 11 years age difference, now do you see the difference????

    Even with 11 years there is no difference. Go look at McCaffereys numbers…can’t run between the tackes and is used the exact same way the saints used Reggie. McCafferey is more of a threat on paper then in the actual game.

  15. If some team is dumb enough to sign Reggie, he will be awesome… at getting injured and cashing his paycheck. That’s the extent of his skill set now.
