08:00 AM ET 02.11 | Among the more worth-watching offseason storylines in Miami is what will happen to Reggie Bush. A source close to [Bush] said this week that Bush still badly wants to return to Miami, and his camp is confused as to why the Dolphins haven't even made an offer yet. The Dolphins expect big things out of Lamar Miller in his second year next season. ... [But Bush] has been essentially campaigning to return on his Twitter feed, particularly given a recent report that he is unlikely to be brought back. An example of the types of messages he has retweeted to his 2.75 million followers: "RT @chefdruker: @MiamiDolphins we need @reggie_bush in Miami. Do what's right! He's a leader & that is worth the money!"

It is weird... He produces, and puts up crazy fantasy numbers... Weird.

Wait until he goes to a team with a real QB say the Packers and his stats will be insane.

Go to the Rams, Bro.

Actually he produced fewer yards than Ahmad Bradshaw with a lower average per carry. Perhaps they know they can sign Bradshaw cheaper and get a better pass blocker out of it too.

Possibly...

Personally, I prefer a north and south runner, but On "Hard Knocks" it seemed he was more of a locker-room leader than they give him credit for...

He will be in some uniform next year. You know his agent has a number in mind for his next contract, it is about money in the end.

Reggie likes that South Beach lifestyle.

Maybe USC will make him an even better offer? Again.

I agree!!!. Reggie would be a good back, catching the ball out of the backfield. Check his receiving stats the first three years with the Saints!!!

Come on dude, you are better than that!!! Come up with something new, you are becoming and sounding like a real idiot!!! The Bush and USC case is done and that ship has sailed!!!

OD, I was thinking the same thing!!! Reggie would be a good fit and they could use him as a slot receiver!!!

February 11, 2013  10:39 AM ET

Put him in a Cowboy Uniform and watch him go, he would be perfect as a third down back!

And it's a tax free state, enjoy.

Odd... I don't find the silent treatment at all confusing.

Can't afford him... Not with the other needs.


I'd love to have him here, though.

LMAO. Once a liar............... Nothing ever changes. BTW, Lance Armstrong told a fib or two, and A-Rod took (takes) PEDS. Lots of others too. All those ships are still running. Some of 'em aground. But, thanks for the advice. Always welcome.

February 11, 2013  03:54 PM ET

he was not that good this year.....possibly the most overrated RB, next to McFadden

Reggie had 986 yards rushing, with a 4.3 yards per carry and 35 receptions for 292 yards, for a 8.3 yards per catch in 2012!!! It might not be great, but Reggie had a decent season!!!

I've never heard (or seen) any you've told. OT. If I have I've forgotten 'cause I'm too old to remember everything I've said! Anyway, have a good one.

:-)
