NFL Trade Rumors: Reggie Bush More Interesting When You Don't Think About The Cost

I've mentioned Reggie Bush a few times on SB Nation St. Louis as a possible trade option because as a possibility for removing some anvils from Steven Jackson's back he is almost ideal: He's a name-brand, so Jackson would respect him more than the non-entities with which he doesn't want to share, but he's neither durable nor a conventional running back, so Jackson wouldn't have to fear being overtaken. At 26 he's still at his physical peak and with his incredibly varied skill-set he could be just as valuable for Sam Bradford under the St. Louis Rams' new Josh McDaniels-fied offense.

Sounds great! Then you think about how he might cost a third-round pick, like Turf Show Times did Sunday, and it becomes less interesting.

I like Bush, and if he's available resources-cheap he might have a comeback season of sorts in St. Louis, divorced from the draft-bust label he implicitly wears in New Orleans. But the price would have to be right, and the Rams have, for the most part, priced their own draft picks pretty highly.
