He just had his press conference and said he was forgoing his senior year and will be eligable for this years draft.

 
Reggie Bush decides to turn proKEN PETERS Associated PressLOS ANGELES - Reggie Bush is skipping his senior season at Southern California to enter the NFL draft.The Heisman Trophy winner made the expected announcement Thursday, a day after running mate LenDale White made his decision to leave early and turn pro.Bush is expected to be one of the first players taken in the draft - with many projecting him going to the Houston Texans with the No. 1 pick.The electrifying running back had 1,740 yards rushing and 2,890 all-purpose yards this season for the Trojans, who fell short of an unprecedented third national title when they lost 41-38 to Texas in the Rose Bowl last week.

shouldn't this be in the 2006 RB draft thread?????

:lol:
Ummm, you must not have seen. This is a thread about Reggie Bush. From the University of Southern California.Hellooooooo?

Include this in another thread? Pshaw.

 
I predict that he'll play in the slot a lot here for Chow -- even moreso than playing RB.
:confused: Bush is going to Tennessee?
I wouldn't be surprised to see the Titans trade up to get him. Depends on what the Texans are asking for him, although it could work out great for both teams with the Texans getting Young for the fans and some extra picks.
 
Was there any indication prior to the Rose Bowl that Reggie wouldn't go pro ? I can't help but think this was a publicity stunt to get him back in the news after Vince Young stole the spotlight.

They might not need to "trade up" to get him if he is there at #3 like I expect him to be after Houston takes VY first.The absolute NIGHTMARE scenario for the Titans would be for NO to take Young or Bush and that leaves Chow and company with Leinart.... :o :loco:

I'm sure Tenn would rather have Leinart over VY, but NO will take him. Also, the Texans won't let the fan base there dictate who they select. Houston drafts Reggie Bush or trades the pick.1) Hou - Bush or trades the pick

2) NO - Leinart

3) TEN - DeAngelo Williams or VY

4) NYJ - Best available punter to go along with Nugent in forming a great kicking game

I've mentioned this before but her'e a nice scenario for Houston:1. TEN - Trades up toget VY and gives HOU an extra pick or two2. NO - Leinart3. HOU - Reggie BushThey get the guy they always wated AND a few picks to bolster their OL.

I doubt NO would pass on Bush if he's there. Deuce is coming off an ACL injury and didn't play well before that.
 
1. Saying that the Titans would prefer Leinart to Young is silly. The people I know in the Titans organization said that part of Young's decision to come out was when a little birdie (Steve McNair) put in Vince's ear that he would not slip past 3. I think the Titans will be happy to get whichever of the 3 slips.2. WoMI is right on - I'm beginning to think that Bush is going to slip to the Titans at #3. THe groundswell in Houston to take Young is HUGE. The Saints don't need Bush, they need a QB. So, that could leave Bush at 3 for the Titans to take. As much as I don't like Adam Jones, a kick return duo of Jones and Bush would be awesome.Colin

You clearly have no idea how much money the Saints have invested in Deuce, nor do you realize that they do not have a quarterback.Colin

The Titans are in a great place to be this year as any of the top 3 would be a great fit for them. Unless they don't like Lienert or are dying for Vince, I don't see how they can lose in this situation. :thumbup:

While I prefer they take Vince because of my personal man-crush, I am going to be happy to have any of the 3. Truthfully, even Ferguson would excite me. Considering how painful it was to watch some of their games this year, having a strong pool up top in draft should make it worthwhile. Taking one of the "big 3" in round 1 and either a OT (Whitworth, Scott if he slips) or a LB (Ernie Sims) in round 2 would be a great start.

Sheldon Mickles, of the Advocate, reports New Orleans Saints RB Deuce McAllister's $50.1 million contract included $12.5 million in bonuses, with a $7 million signing bonus, a $4 million option bonus in 2006 and a $1.5 million roster bonus due next March. Base salaries for the first five years of the deal are $600,000 (2005), $1.45 million (2006), $2.6 million (2007), $3.6 million (2008) and $5.2 million (2009). Roster bonuses of $1 million each are due in 2007 and 2008.
From the way the contract looks to me, the Saints could cut Deuce now and only take a $6 million cap hit on the remaining part of the signing bonus. Compare that to the $5.5 million in bonuses and $1.45 million in salary (almost $7 million total) and you have what is going to be a tough decision on a guy who may not play at his usual level in 2006. As far as Brooks, there are quite a few young QB's who will be available, such Ramsey, McCown, Rosenfels and Wallace. I think one of those guys (I like Wallace a lot) would be a better move than drafting QB and hoping that Deuce comes back healthy this year. The Saints could do well next year with Bush and one of those QB's.

It wouold take a lot of shots to convince me that Ramsey, Rosefels, McCown, Collins, and the like are better options than Brooks.

I can give you 6.5 million reasons why they are better options than Brooks.

Are those the same $6 million reasons you are going to lose by putting Deuce on the street?

The net effect of cutting Deuce is a $1 million in savings ($7 million due this year - $6 cap hit if cut). His 3.6 YPC before the injury doesn't exactly inspire enough confidence to lay out $7 million this year on a guy who likely won't be 100%. I'd rather move on and get a guy with little wear and tear who to most observers looks to have all the ability needed to be the next Marshall Faulk.I don't agree with the reasoning of letting Brooks go, even with his $6.5 million salary next year, but that's what the Saints seem intent on doing. I believe what is left on his bonus is less than a $2 million hit so if they can get a cheap QB then they will come out ahead cap-wise.
