Former Heisman winner. National champion. Big name program with a big name coach. Sounds like the college credentials of somebody we all know very well by now, doesn't it? Now imagine two players with those credentials as members of the Denver Broncos. Maybe this will help...
Yep, I'm talking about Reggie Bush. Once a new CBA is in place, he could be available in a hurry. Next season he is due $11.8 million from the Saints, and he hasn't earned anywhere near this type of money yet, so they could very well cut ties with the former second overall pick. He realizes this, so there it is very likely that he will take a sizable pay-cut wherever he winds up.
He could be quite the addition to the Broncos, in two phases of the game. On offense, he would be a great receiver out of the backfield (or split out wide), and could take some pressure off of Knowshon in the running game. On special teams, he's been a great punt returner his entire career, and could offer stability and allow Eddie Royal to (finally) focus on receiver. Plus, he would have an idea of what it takes to win a Super Bowl after New Orleans's win last year.
What say MHR?
