Saints RB Reggie Bush Notably Absent From Teams Organized Workout

2 of 2

But in the mean time it’s wait and seen as Bush and the Saints still need to restructure his existing contract that will pay him more than eleven million in 2011. He can’t make that much in consideration to his production and the teams need to sign other potential free agents.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees has taken it upon himself to organize team workouts at Tulane University in spite of the ongoing lockout.

Bush was not in attendance but it’s notable that Brees reached out to his team mate in an effort to get him involved.

One can only speculate as to why he did not attend — unavailable, working out on his own — but it’s possible he still thinks his days as a Saints are numbered.

He wasn’t the only player not to attend, out of the 82 total players on the roster, only 37 made it to the first day of workouts, excerpt taken from nola.com article.

"Among the others in attendance were linebacker Jonathan Vilma, safety Malcolm Jenkins, cornerback Randall Gay, cornerback Johnny Patrick, defensive end Junior Galette, offensive tackle Jon Stinchcomb, receivers Marques Colston, Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson and Adrian Arrington, tight ends Jimmy Graham and Tyler Lorenzen, tailbacks Lynell Hamilton and Chris Taylor, fullback Jed Collins, center Matt Tennant, long snapper Justin Drescher, quarterback Sean Canfield and kicker Garrett Hartley. Among the notables who weren’t in attendance were tailbacks Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory, guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks, receiver Lance Moore, defensive linemen Will Smith, Sedrick Ellis, Shaun Rogers, Remi Ayodele and Alex Brown, cornerbacks Tracy Porter and Patrick Robinson, linebacker Scott Shanle and punter Thomas Morstead — though any or all of them could show up soon. Evans, for one, is expected to arrive today."
