Reggie Bush was considered all but certain to be a salary cap casualty for the New Orleans Saints thanks to his $11.8 million salary for 2011 ... until they managed to trade him to the Miami Dolphins on Thursday morning.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports inititally reported the news (very) early on Thursday morning and the Miami Herald's Jeff Darlington confirmed the news, reporting that 'Fins GM Jeff Ireland wanted to "sleep on it."

Well, it looks like Ireland's awake now, and Bush is Miami-bound, as reports now indicate that Bush signed off on a two-year deal with the Dolphins.

Bush could be motivated to prove that he can indeed succeed as the featured back on a roster, which a move to Miami would likely let him do -- he and Daniel Thomas would theoretically provide a one-two punch in South Beach.

Plus he now get a fresh start -- things got ugly after the Saints decided to draft another former Heisman winner in Mark Ingram and Bush awkwardly tweeted "it's been fun" afterwards.

The running back market now changes dramatically, as the Dolphins were expected to compete for Ahmad Bradshaw and Ronnie Brown. Their decision to trade for Bush should allow inflation on running backs to sink a bit.

LOL is all I have to say about you ppl that call Reggie Talentless, did you forget that without him your superbowl year you would NOT have even won or even gone to the superbowl?  He was a beast that year and no one else could've filled that void.  I have always liked Reggie, but I also like Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown, however I think Ricky is better off staying in Miami and if we have to get rid of one of them it should be Ronnie Brown.

Micheal Bush would be AWESOME.  Reggie Bush is a joke.  Why would a team give up ANYTIHNG for this bum?

"Big Play" Reggie Bush has averaged 3.9 yards/carry, 7.3 yards/reception, and scored 33 total TD's (rush, rec, return) in 5 seasons

"Slow and Steady" Ronnie Brown has averaged 4.3 yards/carry, 8.1 yards/reception, has scored 40 TD's (rush, rec, pass) in 6 seasons

Brown has been a good citizen while Bush cheated his way through USC, got his school on probation and disgraced the Heisman club.  Who do you really want on your team?

Bush has some talent, but he is not a featured back and has never been, not even is college.  I am glad he is no longer a Saint and happy that New Orleans got something for him, especially considering he was third string.  Not sure what Miami was doing, but if they needed a third down back and kick returner, then Bush may fit in there.  If they are expecting anything more, they will be disappointed.
