Report: Dolphins “highly unlikely” to re-sign Reggie Bush

Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland is looking for playmakers this offseason, but that may not include impending free agent running back Reggie Bush.

Citing sources, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports Bush is “highly unlikely” to be re-signed by the Dolphins. La Canfora suspects Bush could land with a “contender” on a short-term deal, but he’s apparently not expected back in Miami.

Behind Bush on the depth chart this past season, the Dolphins had pedestrian, fumble-prone veteran Daniel Thomas and fourth-round pick Lamar Miller. Although Miller was incredibly raw as a rookie in terms of both playbook knowledge and blitz pickup, he may be the future at the position for the Dolphins. Miller averaged nearly five yards a carry in 2012.

Bush can contribute on special teams as a return specialist and is effective in limited doses as a ball carrier. His strength is still the passing game, but the Dolphins didn’t use him there with a high frequency. Despite playing in all 16 games this past season, Bush finished with 35 receptions — the second lowest total of his career.He is coming off back to back 1,000 yard seasons. Miami doesn't use him in the passing game right, he could be a lethal weapon in our passing attack along with being a pretty good RB.:thumbs:

would be perfect from a offensive weapon stand point. but he'll command too much money and isn't the between the tackles runner we need.

We have a scat back here already, don't really need two.

It's not wise to spend 5-6 mil on a RB that probably won't get most of the carries.

I dont think he'd be a "scat back," but he'd be a hell of a weapon in the pass game.

I doubt they make him an offer, Hillman/Moreno are their guys for that role. Both can go between the tackles sometimes also. They'll draft a stouter back that's more of a between the tackles guy with the 2nd/3rd rounder to compete with McGahee.

i always thought he was garbage, but he's changed my mind the last two seasons. he would certainly be a game changer that this offense needs. price might be too much.

We don't have someone with Bush's skill set. I like this guy. He's a vet, seems to have a good head on his shoulders, can do it all, and would be awesome in the pass game. Hillman may develop into something, but for a fast, quick guy, he sure doesnt make people miss.

He's the ideal system fit for the kind of offense we're trying to run here.

He and Moreno would be a very good 1/2 punch while Hillman develops.

Depends on price and whether we still try for a between the tackles runner. Basically Bush is a Moreno replacement. Still need the Willis replacement

The Joker
01-29-2013, 06:27 AM
Yeah, I'd be all for this.

Cut McGahee, sign Bush. It'll be a few more dollars but Bush gives you a lot more at RB, he can line up at WR too and considering our poor depth at that position it'd be killing two birds with one stone.

Draft a power back in the middle of the draft somewhere and you've got a nice quartet of options in Bush, Moreno, Hillman and a rookie.

Draft a back with power to complement Hillman. Ronnie will bulk up in the offseason which he needs to do.

He's been the lone playmaker on that offense for a couple years. If his contract requests are too high for the dolphins, and what makes you think we can afford him?

Because the Dolphins are trying to establish a foundation for the future whereas the Broncos are trying to dive through a closing window?

Bush is 27, and has had a part time role most of his career. I find it hard to believe the dolphins getting rid of him is an attempt to "get younger"

I would LOVE Bush her, but I would bet against it... Unless Elway plans on cutting Moreno or Willis or both and drafting another back. Hillman is the only one I see as FOR sure coming back though I'd keep Moreno for sure.

I'd take Shonn Green in a heartbeat over Bush. He's a better runner, blocks better, is bigger and more physical. Not quite as fast but we have Hillman for that role.

Bush has stated he would like to return to the Dolphins...the dolphins seem to not want him.. in that case the ball is in their court, and they are choosing not to resign him, given first opportunity.

Bush is saying the samething pretty much every FA says. Going a different direction does sound like the are getting rid of him to me. Even more so when they have invested a 4th and a 2nd round pick on RBs in back to back seasons. It's time to get those players on the field more.

Apparently you haven't watched Shonn Greene actually play the past 2 years. Dude is the very definition of average. He would be fourth string behind our guys.

I like the top 2 backs in the draft. Lacy from Ala has a lot of power and seems to be a good all around back. Probably not Trent Richardson good but I still think really good.

Bernard from N Carolina I like because he has sweet moves and with 4.5 speed can go all the way with his shiftiness. Also lattimore as a risky pick if he fell to us in the bottom of the 3rd would be hard to pass up. He's a first round talent but has the injury risk.

I would let Moreno walk and test the market, if he will sign super cheap then keep him. McGahee i think has hit the wall with the last injury and his best days are far enough gone to where we should let him go. keep Hillman, cut Ball, sign a vet RB and draft a young stud. IMO we should totally rebuild a very lackluster group of runners that lack big play ability.

01-29-2013, 06:30 PM
Also though i bet you could just sign Reggie Bush, keep Moreno and Hillman and have a decent rb corps next yr. Bush showed he will run hard and not bounce everything outside and he has good hands.

Still i would rather broncos just keep building through the draft. Can't at every spot every yr but RB seems like something that put us over the top in yrs past.

KM still has a year on his contract for about $1.5mil.

Willis has 2 years left, 2013 is $3mill and 2014 2.5mil.

I don't see them keeping both and adding a guy, I think one of them goes especially if they feel that Hillman will develop over the offseason.

KM is better in the passing game. Willis has more power and is better as a runner though KM closed that gap at the end of the year. Thing is neither guy has the threat of taking one to the house. We would probably be better off cutting Willis and eating his dead money and find someone who can give us at least 1200 yards on the ground, pick up short yardage, protect the ball better, and factor into the passing game as a receiver and in pass pro.

I don't think Bush is that guy, he is the same type of back that KM is with more speed and vision but less power and less ability to carry the ball 20+ times a game.

If they dumped KM I think he would be a good fit (as long as he was cap friendly as everyone else pointed out) but if they dumped Willis I would like to find a better back to replace him with.

I hope we draft a good power back that we can lean on, have either Bush or KM on the team to use in the passing game and hope Hillman develops into the 2nd change of pace back moving KM/Bush to a 3rd down back type roll.

Oh I thought Moreno was in his last yr. Yeah he is in same situation as last yr then. At his cheap price tag he might as well make the team. Even if he does get injured all the time they can squeeze 1.5 million out of him.

Willis I would still move on from and cut. I just think we saw what he is turning into last yr. No speed, getting injured more, getting older, getting slower and fumbling more and more.

Yep. The dolphins do not want him back. Has nothing to do with money. They have benched him the past year and are willing to move on without him.

Greene has been average to awful other than his rookie year playoff run. Bush went from bust to a guy who impressed me and showed ability to run hard and put up huge games. He is exactly what Denver offense is missing and can get the big plays out of run game. What scares me is I can already see New England letting woodhead walk and sign Bush. I say cut Moreno and Willis and give their money to Bush. Draft a big back and roll with Bush , Hillman, and 2 rookies.
