While another former New Orleans Saints named Bush(Reggie) that wore #25 is currently a free agent, there will be another with that name and number coming back to the Black and Gold.

Safety Rafael Bush announced on Twitter yesterday that he will remain with the Saints:

"Resigning with the saints for another year #whodat"

Bush quickly became an impact player when he was signed by the Saints in September of 2012 after spending time with the Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos.

He registered 18 tackles and had an interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a forced fumble against the Atlanta Falcons.  Prior to his career with the Saints, Bush only had 4 tackles.

During his time with the Saints, Bush stood out as he went from a special teams player to becoming a fixture in the secondary due to injuries.
