So much for the Bush will def. holdout

Saints' top pick Bush wants to avoid holdout
ESPN.com news services

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints rookie running back Reggie Bush says he wants to avoid a contract holdout at all costs.

"I told my agent I want to be in here in camp on time ... whatever it takes, I want to be in camp on time," the No. 2 overall draft pick out of Southern California told USA Today at the team's mini-camp on Saturday. "I think it is important to start off on a good foot and a good note, not only with the team but the city."

Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said negotiations are in the early stages with Bush, the newspaper reported in Monday's editions.

"We're encouraged he feels that way, but we haven't really started talking," Loomis said.

Bush's strained left hamstring limited his involvement in the team's rookie mini-camp for the second consecutive day Sunday.

Bush stood on the side and watched as others went through two practices, referring to a list of plays he carried in his hand and riding a stationary bike at times.

The Heisman Trophy winner and second pick in last month's NFL draft felt tightness in the hamstring as he stretched prior to the team's first workout Saturday and worked in just a few drills in the first practice. He said after Saturday's late workout that he hoped to practice Sunday, pending approval of the coaching and medical staffs, which never came.

"I think not just me but collectively the coaches and training staff thought, just give it a rest, get it to 100 percent before you come out here," Bush said. "Obviously I'd love to be on the practice field and practicing, so it's frustrating right now. But it's still early, too."

Bush stayed involved mentally by following the play sheet.

"I was still able to follow along and learn the plays," he said. "It didn't feel worse, but it's just not 100 percent. There's no reason to push it and risk any further injury if it's not 100 percent."

Coach Sean Payton said it was important that Bush learn as much as he can even when he's not participating in drills.

"He needs to get up to speed with what we're doing," Payton said.



So much for all the ideas he will holdout no matter what and is just all about the money.

Well, it says that he wants to get in on-time at all costs, etc, etc, but then the GM says they haven't really even talked yet . We'll just have to wait and see what happens. I think the NFL is going to be really exciting to watch next year with all these awesome NCAA athletes going pro. VY, Huff, Griffin, Bush, Leinart, White, McNeal, Moss, Dumerville, that tight end that went in the top 10, etc.

There isn't anything wrong with wanting a good contract, but when he says his objective is to make it to camp w/a contract signed, it seems to me as if he needs to take what he can get right now. Plus, he's still got the benefits scandal over his head and a lame hamstring.

the "scandal" doesn't affect his contract in the nfl, they don't care. his hamstring isn't an issure either because it heals, it isn't like he tore his acl, it is something minor that they can't use to bargin against him.

They do care about character issues, despite what they might say in the media. The hamstring might not be that big of a deal, but it sure did affect LenDale White's draft stock.

Either way, Bush is headed for a HOLDOUT just like I said he would.

Wasn't there a Texas-Ex Runningback who was a holdout as a Rookie last year? And how much did he produce for the bears?


Honestly, the league needs to make a rule that a Rookie has no right to ask for more money before he ever plays one single snap. It's pretty petty IMO.

Cedric Benson never said he wouldn't holdout either, genius. Plus, Benson ran for more yards in his career and in his last season than Bush did in his career and last season. Benson is an every down back and Bush is a 'Scat' back. Benson also had to run behind a veteran in Thomas Jones, who may be gone to another team by the start of the regular season. (Colts)

I dare you to google "scat back" at work and see how long it takes for HR to give you a ring!

Seriously, why would the Colts go after Thomas Jones this late in the offseason? With Domanic Rhodes and Joseph Addai, they should'nt do too bad. Don't get me wrong, Edge will be missed but Tony Dungy will work with what he has.

Bush isn't an in-between the tackles RB. He's an outside runner. He shouldn't expect to get paid like a normal RB when he isn't one in the first place. His value expectations are over-inflated.

There have been indications that the Colts have wanted Jones for a while now, but really haven't gotten hot and heavy into it for him yet. Dominic Rhodes is merely a backup RB/KR and Joseph Addai is an inexperienced rookie. The biggest thing that Indy will miss from Edgerrin James is his pass blocking. There isn't a better pass blocking RB in the league. It also doesn't hurt that they guy can run and catch too

They should've nabbed Najeh Davenport from the Packers this offseason.

They were hoping that Laurence Maroney from Minnesota would fall to them because his style of running is very similar to James'. However, NE snagged him up before he fell down to the Colts' pick. Damn NE.

So what does it say about yourself when your put down is calling someone else genius, and you can't spell genius. I guess it takes the same type of person who thinks Numbers in COLLEGE equate to production as a Professional.

Hey, even I mis-spell words sometimes and I have some of the best grammar and spelling on here.

I agree that #'s in college do not always translate to success in the NFL, but most of the time they are a good indication of what a player can/will do. There are always exceptions to the rule.

they care when you are the one doing the bad stuff, not when your folks are. he didn't do shit wrong. lendale fell because he has weight issues and from what I read he didn't come across as a person that puts team first always during the interviews at the combines.

bush won't hold out as much as the saints might not pay him his worth.

White was 5 lbs over his playing weight at the USC Pro Day. A person can loose 5 lbs in a day so that shouldn't have been an issue. I highly doubt the team issue as well seeing has how he had to split carries with Bush and you never heard a peep out of him.

What exactly is Bush's worth? Its not #1 overall money because he wasn't that. It also isn't what VY will get either.

I'm not saying the guy isn't a good player, but he and the media have over-inflated his worth. He isn't going to get what he wants and that reality check is about to happen.

bush is the best player in the draft period. he is worth #1 money because everybody knows he should have been the number 1 pick. even the texans, explaining why they are now in search of a new GM. bush should get his money if the saints want to be cheap and not pay, that isn't a deal of him holding out but more of the saints being cheap.

So he's not going to hold out, eh?

This fuckstick is thinking about going back into the draft in 2007 if he doesn't get the contract he wants.

you can call it a holdout, I call it not wanting to work less then what is owed. would you take a job at 2.00 and hour or wait till you got your 25.00 an hour knowing that you will get it from somewhere else?

I don't blame him. this is tom benson way of getting his team out of NO in 2 years, so be it that he loses one of those rare players that comes along maybe 1 out of every 10-15 yrs.

bush will hold out through training camp at least, he has good character but has been hyped up so much that even he thinks he's the best thing to ever come into the nfl. i see him getting hurt early on in his nfl career.

Normally I hate seeing a player hold out, but I know how much of an ass Benson is. He wants that team out of NO and he is probably low balling the hell out of Bush. If not, then shame on Bush, but I get the feeling that he was seriously low balled.

How was I wrong? He went against his word and did hold out. Did he make it to camp on time? Nope. Thats a holdout. It doesn't matter if its for a day or 100 days, its still a holdout.

He still hasn't signed anything yet as nobody has reported on it.

I clearly understand that they have AGREED to a contract, but what the exact terms are of that are still unknown. For now, its pure speculation on what he exactly got.

Plus, he's still not going to get what he wanted in the first place and that was more money than Mario Williams.

Guaranteed money? Yes, but less than a million dollars. Oooohhh.

He isn't making as much as VY with bonuses/incentives though.
