Reggie Bush is easily one of the most coveted free agent running backs on the free agent market. The Arizona Cardinals just released Beanie Wells and were said to be one of the NLF teams that were going to pursue the former USC star.
XTRA Phoenix’s Mike Jurecki ended all that speculation with a short tweet: “Bush isn’t coming to AZ.”
I can’t imagine a top flight free agent being interested in the mess that is the Arizona Cardinals. They started 4 different quarterbacks last season, including one they didn’t sign until December. But rumors are coming out that Reggie Bush will sign a deal today, and the favorite to land bush is the Detroit Lions.
Maybe all that campaigning from Nate Burleson got the job done. He adds a different dimension to their offense that should make them a more well rounded offense. This would certainly free up Calvin Johnson, aka Megatron. Though he still ran over defenses despite being the focal point of their offense.
Bush supposedly is set to sign shortly after the free agency period opens at 4PM.
The Cardinals are supposedly instead turning their attention towards former Pittsburgh Steelers Rashard Mendenhall. That seems more like fitting, a scrap part being picked up by a team who is collecting scraps and duck taping a team together.
