Reggie Bush Rumored To Be Shopping Himself To Interested Teams

Here's an interesting way to combine the St. Louis Rams' perceived need for a veteran receiver with their perceived need for a change-of-pace back to keep Steven Jackson from wearing down entirely: The latest NFL rumors have estranged New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush shopping himself around the league, looking for a team that would be more interested in paying him than the Saints appear to be after selecting Mark Ingram and keeping Chris Ivory and Pierre Thomas around. 

Reggie Bush never turned into the superstar he looked like in college, but he's got a peculiar skill-set, one that would help the Rams fix two peculiar problems. With Austin Pettis and Greg Salas on the roster the Rams have no more room for questionably gifted wide receivers like Plaxico Burress or Randy Moss, and Steven Jackson continues to protest any plan that calls for him splitting time with another running back, despite the down-year he suffered in 2010 after years of single-back abuse. 

Bush would give Sam Bradford an interesting and potentially dangerous option as a receiver, and he'd give Steven Jackson an interesting but not threatening wingman at running back. Voila!
