Washington Redskins Curiously Elect To Host Reggie Bush


But, there was the, and the, with the and the no money with the league-imposed penalties and the cutting good players and letting Pro Bowlers walk and the court cases and… What?!

It appears the Redskins will be hosting former Heisman Trophy winner (well, sorta) Reggie Bush in the event that he make it out of his first stop in Detroit without a contract (via Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports).

Can someone remind me why?

Ok, I get why; I’ve written multiple times in the past month, most recently yesterday morning, that the Redskins could use a change-of-pace back to complement Alfred Morris and lessen his workload. I suggested Felix Jones, because with Detroit and Arizona reportedly offering starting jobs to Bush and the Redskins lacking significant funds, it just doesn’t seem plausible that Bush would elect to take less money and playing time just to play on a better team. He’s already won a Super Bowl in New Orleans, and with this being his final pre-30 contract, he’ll be looking to cash in on playing time and money.

Though there’s no denying that Bush is a quality running back, again, I don’t understand why the Redskins are wasting their time. While the Redskins should do their due diligence on all players, one would think they’d spend all their time, energy and resources on fixing the offensive line and defensive backfield. Free agent negotiations can turn in a split second, and I want Bruce Allen by his phone or with the agent of a needed player 24 hours a day, not driving Reggie Bush down by the Jefferson Memorial selling him on the beautiful cherry blossoms.
