We last heard from Reggie Bush in June, when he was refuting a Yahoo report that the Saints had given him permission to seek a trade in February.
On Tuesday, Bush spoke to ESPN's Colleen Dominguez about his future with in New Orleans. "I want to be with the Saints. I know that the coaches, the owner, the GM, have all expressed how much they want me back," he said. "And hopefully we can all find a happy medium. My No. 1 priority is to remain a New Orleans Saint."
Dominguez asked Bush about his draft-night tweet ("It's been fun New Orleans") regarding the Saints trading up in the first round to take running back Mark Ingram.
"I wish I hadn't tweeted it," Bush said. "But for me, what I was thinking was that, I still have this big question mark over my head, I'm still due a lot of money, I'm not sure if I'm gonna be back or not. … To me, it looked as if the team was moving on without me."
When Bush was asked about struggling with injuries for most of his five-year NFL career, he said that "I would attribute a lot of it to turf. There's a difference between playing on grass and FieldTurf. … Another part of it is being unfortunate."
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune's Jeff Duncan (via PFT), of Bush's six injuries, three were on grass, and three were on turf (and one was at the Superdome).
Bush also said that he's a better person now for the things that happened in the past, specifically at USC. "You live and you learn and you try to move on. … All the stuff that happens with USC, it kills me."
