PHOTOS: Reggie Bush ends stint with New Orleans Saints, joins Miami Dolphins
The New Orleans Saints have traded running back Reggie Bush to the Miami Dolphins. Here is a look back on the USC product's NFL career so far.
The Saints traded Bush for safety Jonathon Amaya and undisclosed draft picks.
"I think the challenge for him with his arrival in New Orleans, and I think a lot of you (media) were here in 2006 when he was selected, it was going to be difficult for him ever to live up to some people’s expectations," Saints head coach Sean Payton said of Bush. "I do know this though, in the league and around the league, he is a player that is dangerous, feared, and respected."
The Saints didn't waste much time in signing another running back. The team agreed to a four-year deal with free agent Darren Sproles, a former member of the San Diego Chargers.
With the end of the lockout, the Saints' front office has seen a flurry of activity.
Payton said new contracts have been signed by unrestricted free agents Lance Moore, Jermon Bushrod, Scott Shanle, Leigh Torrence, Chris Reis and Jo-Lonn Dunbar.
Usama Young and Remi Ayodele both signed with other teams. Young, a safety, will compete for a starting position with the Cleveland Browns. Ayodele, a defensive tackle, will join the Minnesota Vikings.
Of the 2011 draft picks, three have signed: Johnny Patrick (CB), Greg Romeus (DE) and Nate Bussey (LB).
