Reggie Bush could be wearing a Philadelphia Eagles jersey in 2011, according to Eagles inside sources who told Yahoo! Sports that the team is showing interest in potentially signing the New Orleans Saints running back, orginally reported on sportingnews.com.
Reggie Bush has been the most talked-about player on the Saints roster this offseason, from his feelings on Saints 2011 draftee Mark Ingram, to USC losing their national championship after Bush’s departure. It doesn’t seem as though that is going to change as we approach the end of the lockout and the start of the 2011 NFL season.
The Eagles are also reportedly showing interest in WR Plaxico Burress, who was recently released from prison on gun possession charges, as well as DT Albert Haynesworth. Both of these players, given their track record during their career, are viewed as a bit rough around the edges.
Bush has shown emotional inconsistency during this offseason, including a physical estrangement from all organized team activities. He has been most notably absent at the Tulane workouts organized by team veterans Drew Brees and Jonathan Vilma.
The Saints have shown through these workouts that the early development of their team as a cohesive unit is essential for their chances to not only end the NFL lockout, but to succeed on the field as well.
In every training camp that Brees has been a part of, the Saints have supported a mantra or slogan for the coming season. This year they are sporting t-shirts which say — DWI (Deal With It).
