Reggie Bush back to the Big Easy? Who Dat Nation weighs in


Stop me if you haven’t heard this in the past few hours, but what if former Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush would return to the New Orleans Saints? Moments after the announcement, Facebook and Twitter exploded with sentiments of reuniting the former 1st Round (2nd overall) 2006 draft choice back with the black and gold.

The overall consensus of bringing back Bush to New Orleans is very mixed. However, it’s interesting to see fan reactions to the notion of this even being a remote possibility. While this may seem like a good idea on the surface, the team has more pressing issues, like resigning Mark Ingram. The Saints backfield arguably is missing a Darren Sproles-type presence, and Bush doesn’t necessarily fit the bill as a replacement.

Bringing Bush back wouldn’t be the first time (or would be the last time) the Saints brought back a player who previously played on the team. However, the answer to finding a player with the skill sets of a Reggie Bush is not easy, but the draft does have several options available that could assist the New Orleans Saints in 2015.
