FanIQ | Sports Rumors, Gossip, Blogs, News & Discussion ForumsAfter proving himself an all-rounded running back over the past two years, the price tag on running back Reggie Bush was expected to hike up with the official start of the NFL's three-day negotiating period for free agents. With that it seems ever more likely that Reggie Bush may not return with the Miami Dolphins for the 2013 season.
At least a couple of teams, having serious interest in the running back, have been in contact with Reggie Bush’s representation, according to sources close to the player. The salaries which have reportedly come across discussions are significant.
The Arizona Cardinals are said to be one of those teams, who are looking to add some firepower on their offense, and Reggie Bush has that talent. The Detroit Lions are also reportedly having their players recruit Reggie Bush, with running back Jahvid Best likely to never play football again while dealing with post-concussive symptoms.
However, Reggie Bush may find the Arizona Cardinals more suited to his talents given he’d make an immediate trip up the depth charts there, compared to anything of the sorts happening with the Detroit Lions.
After spending five-years with the New Orleans Saints, who selected him 2nd overall in the 2006 draft, Reggie Bush arrived in Miami via a trade prior to the 2011 season. He immediately launched to success, posting a career-high 1,086 rushing yards that season. Last year, ran for 986 yards while being limited with a knee injury he sustained against the New York Jets, Though Reggie Bush didn’t miss a game due to the injury he struggled with its lingering effects through a few weeks, otherwise his production would have been even higher last season.
However, Reggie Bush came back from the knee injury to close the season strong, finishing with eight touchdowns for only the third season in his seven-year NFL career.
 The Miami Dolphins haven’t given up all interest in Reggie Bush as yet and still considering retaining him, according to sources. But the Miami Dolphins’ growing confidence in running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas goes to show the team could be putting its money to use elsewhere.
The Miami Dolphins have been linked to wide receiver Mike Wallace, one of the top free agents at the position in the market. They are also believed to have some interest in New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett.
