The book is officially closed on the 2009-10 season, so it’s time to look ahead.
And what better way to start than with Reggie Bush.
The question is, will the Saints running back, who added a Super Bowl ring to his resume, be back with the champions, considering he will make $8 million next season and his salary cap number will be $13.5 million?
Bush is owed nearly $20 million for the final two years of the six-year, $52.5 million deal he signed with the Saints as the No. 2 pick in 2006.
But consider this: His highest rushing total in four seasons is 565 yards, hardly the production you’d expect from the highest paid running back in the NFL next season.
According to Sports Illustrated, Saints officials could ask Bush to restructure his contract. If he refuses and is released, there are a number of teams that make sense for Bush.
