Reggie Bush Update
***Posting from Hammond, LA***
It would appear that The Saints have reached an agreement with first round draft pick Reggie Bush. Word is that The Saints negotiating team came up with contract terms to Bush’s liking (more likely his agent’s liking) last night and he should be at camp in Jackson, MS to sign the contract sometime today.
For the most part I believed that Bush’s hold-out was nothing more than the inevitable posturing that goes on with top picks every year in the NFL these days. I felt fairly confident that Bush would sign within a week of the start of training camp, but I have to admit I was a little worried after last weeks rumors that he might sit out the entire season and re-enter the Draft next season.
Now that the whole affair has been settled, its time to look forward to one of my favorite distractions from daily life: being let down by one of the most tragic NFL teams to ever grace a metropolitan area. I don’t think anything gives me more reason to drown my sorrows in whiskey than watching The Saints screw up over and over again.
