He's not a power back, so would Mendenhall still be on the radar? Perhaps both of them replacing McGahee and Moreno?

I'm still sticking with Jackson or GTFO. We don't want to waste money on Reggie Bush. We are supposed to be getting BETTER, at RB...

Out of curiosity, what bronco running back has a similar skill set to Bush. And just because hillman is fast, it doesn't mean they are similar

But I'm told Reggie Bush is trying to get with a pass first team so that he can be utilized ideally, playing to his strengths.

This would be outstanding.

Bush replaces KM.

Draft a power back (Bell) to replace Willis.

Keep developing Hillman.

Winning.

Upgrade over KM, IMO. Is capable of scoring from anywhere, which is something we lack in the backfield. If the price is right, get 'er done.

Miami would beg to differ. He was extremely effective on the ground there. Would be a great addition.

Regarding the Broncos interest in Reggie Bush, aint happening. No interest. That's no on Revis and no on Bush.

Good to see Vic is on top of things, despite him saying Mike Shanahan was never going to get fired either. Hehe.

Both me and common sense agree with Vic. But then this stuff isn't always common sensical.

From what i saw this last season, Bush really rounded out his game. Ran well between tackles and he's always been a pass catching back. His Pass Protection seems solid as well.

Makes me wonder what the FA plan is for all the money they'd be clearing up if all the rumors are true of cuts and renegotiations of current expensive vet players.

I liked Bush after hard knocks last season which, admittedly, might be a silly reason to sign someone. But unlike the other guys on the show, he was all business, willing to lead, and worked hard.

The other shoe's gotta drop somewhere. Surprised about that the Bush rumors are being squelched so quickly. Seems like he would thrive in a 12 carry, 3-5 catch per game role here.

I compared Reggie Bush's stats to Willis McGahee's stats. They are virtually identical. Last year, McGahee averaged 4.4 ypc and 8.5 receiving yards. Bush averaged 4.3 ypc and 8.3 receiving yards. Now, Steven Jackson is a bigger back than both of them (6-2, 240) and has a distinct advantage in receiving yards. His worst year (2010) showed he had a 6.3 receiving yards average. Most of his receiving yards averaged in the 8 and 9 yard range. He would clearly make the ground game better...
