According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush likely won’t be back in South Beach next season. “The Miami Dolphins face the daunting task of trying to secure a host of their core players for the long term, with running back Reggie Bush, left tackle Jake Long, top defensive lineman Randy Starks, top corner Sean Smith and top receiver Brian Hartline all in the final year of their deals. The Dolphins have had no substantial discussions with the group since before the season, sources said, and talks with most of those potential free agents did not expand beyond the preliminary stage. Considering many of those players are likely to be among the best available talent at their positions, agents and rival executives have been surprised by the lack of movement. League sources said the Dolphins plan to do the bulk of their contract work after the season — a strategy that could prove dangerous — as all of those players save for Long are having strong seasons. Miami has an abundance of cap space in 2013 but will continue trying to seek the proper value for players. Internally, the Dolphins know it will be impossible to retain them all, but the fact that none have been signed yet, with the team surging in the standings after years of suffering, is somewhat alarming and means general manager Jeff Ireland will be very busy in January trying to construct long-term deals,” wrote La Canfora. Bush has proven over the past couple of years that he can be an every down back in the NFL, but the Dolphins likely won’t be willing to pay him the money he deserves as an elite running back. Bush shouldn’t have a problem finding a new home next season.     var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Reggie Bush tweets apology to Dolphins fans

Reggie Bush had perhaps his worst outing in recent memory during Sunday's 37-3 trouncing by the visiting Titans. The seventh-year running back totaled just 21 yards on four carries and one catch for 8 yards against a bad Tennessee defense. Most notably, Bush lost a fumble in the first quarter, his second muff of the year. The mistake prompted coach Joe Philbin to bench his...

Bush out of the doghouse as Dolphins regroup

Reggie Bush is out of coach Joe Philbin's doghouse, which might not be large enough to house all of the deserving Miami Dolphins. Bush and teammate Richie Incognito were benched for part of Sunday's 37-3 loss to Tennessee, but they were hardly the only culprits in the Dolphins' most lopsided home defeat since 1968. The loss was Miami's second in a row, a deflating...

Bush benched, Tannehill erratic, Defense lifeless in loss to Titans

The Miami Dolphins did not show up on Sunday against the Titans. Quite simply, the Dolphins came out flat and stayed that way throughout the game. Where was the Dolphins dominant rushing defense? Where was the efficient quarterback play? Where was the turnover free football that has helped the Dolphins of late? None of it was present on Sunday. I’ll apologize now, as I...

Bush, Incognito sit for miscues

Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin has made it clear there's nobody bigger than the team, and in Sunday's 37-3 loss to the Titans he backed up his philosophy with action. Philbin benched two starters -- tailback Reggie Bush and left guard Richie Incognito -- for their mindless plays during Miami's embarrassing loss. Bush, who ended with 21 yards on four carries, was...
