Reggie Bush has a new home. The Miami Dolphins have acquired Bush from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for safety Jonathan Amaya and an undisclosed amount of draft picks.
The Dolphins immediately signed Bush to a two-year, $10 million contract. He was due to make $11.8 million with the Saints this coming season.
Bush battled through injuries last season, rushing for just 150 yards and scoring only one touchdown the entire season. When healthy, he can be a dynamic presence as a rusher, receiver out of the backfield and even a kick and punter returner.
Bush has already traveled to Miami, but because of the NFL's new post-lockout rules, he won't practice with the team for the first time until August 4th. The Dolphins will have a completely new backfield this coming season, with Bush joining second round draft pick Daniel Thomas from Kansas State.
The team's top two rushers from last season, Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams, are both free agents.
Bush's departure from New Orleans could mean an increased role for Saints top draft pick Mark Ingram, the former Alabama back and 2009 Heisman Trophy winner.
