Bush isn't necessarily done in New Orleans

Bush Posted by Josh Katzowitz

After the Saints drafted RB Mark Ingram in the first round, Reggie Bush almost immediately tapped out a farewell tweet that read, “It’s been fun New Orleans.” QB Drew Brees, though, is urging Bush to remember the situation five years ago when the Saints drafted Bush and how then-starter Deuce McAllister handled himself.

"Deuce handled that situation better than anybody ever could have and he had one of his best seasons in 2006," Brees told Towntalk.com (H/T Pro Football Talk). "He was a huge part of our success. I think Reggie has that same potential to be that big a part of our success this year despite the fact that we've got three other guys."

That also is a hindrance for Bush, because it’s not only Ingram he must worry about. There’s also Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas – who just landed a four-year contract before the lockout. So, after Bush tweeted his response to Ingram’s signing, Brees texted him some words of encouragement, basically writing not to take the draft as a sign that the Saints don’t want him.

But would the Saints actually want him back? Certainly not at the $11.8 million he’s supposed to make in 2011, so Bush would have to restructure his contract. But, after the draft, coach Sean Payton also said he would be surprised if Bush DIDN’T return to the team next season, so it’s hard to know what to think at this point.

"(Bush is) a young guy, he's very prideful and wants to be great. He wants as many opportunities as he can get," Brees said." I think you immediately see (the drafting of Ingram) as, 'Oh, well, that's taking opportunities away from me.’ But in reality, I think you've got to find the positive in it."
