Reports say that the Saints have traded the former first round pick to the Miami Dolphins, and that the Fins will ink Bush to a two-year contract.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer first reported the trade early Thursday morning. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed that Bush agreed to a two-year contract to finish the deal.
The Saints selected RB Mark Ingram in the first round of April’s draft, and Bush was due to be paid $11.8 million in 2011. Rookie Daniel Thomas appears to still be the Dolphins starter at running back, but there’s also chatter the Fins are talking to Ronnie Brown about bringing him back as well.
Update: Bush agreed to a two-year contract for nearly $10 million with the Dolphins, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
