The market for Reggie Bush is a good one, with multiple teams showing significant interest in the prospective free agent running back.
A source very close to Bush tells me three teams have been talking to Bush agent Joel Segal and that money involved in those talks is significant. The source would provide no details of the money or name the teams but it is clear the interest in Bush isn't just of the making-a-call variety.
The source is, however, telling me the Dolphins are not one of those teams.
Indeed, the source is saying Reggie Bush categorically will not be back in Miami.
Segal has not been available for comment. (Neither have most agents, by the way).
The idea that the Dolphins aren't working to bring Bush back is not unexpected. The club showed zero interest in doing a contract with him during the 2012 season and had only lukewarm interest recently.
The Dolphins expect to address their soon-to-be vacant running back position by giving Lamar Miller (first) and Daniel Thomas (second) the opportunity to win the job. The club might also add a running back either in free agency or the draft.
Bush gained 986 yards on 227 carries (4.3 yards per carry) last season. He scored six touchdowns on the ground and was also the team's fourth-leading pass catcher with 35 receptions for 292 yards and 2 TDs.
It was Bush's second season with Miami. It was also Bush's final season with Miami.
