    The only reason I'd re-sign him is to use him more in the passing game, which this staff seems averse to doing for some reason. Not a fan of him as an all-around RB.

    But the real issue is this: With the new CBA there's very little reason to sign and pay a decent veteran RB. Rookie contracts are a fraction of what they used to be. And this is compounded by the fact that rookies cannot re-negotiate within their rookie contract (see: Russell Wilson. Seattle has their franchise QB for $600,000 a year for 4 years and Wilson can't do anything about it. It's madness). The labor is just so cheap now, and we're talking about a position that's the most 'interchangeable' between players. Draft a RB.

    Funnily enough, Reggie Bush not returning to the Dolphins is trending on Yahoo right now, for some reason.

    If Miller is going to do anything much, it will be sooner rather that later. RBs don't take long to develop, they have it or they don't, usually.

    Right, and since thomas "DON'T" have it and miller MAY not have it, we can't let Bush walk. Cut thomas and go after an Eddie Lacy type. Keep Bush as an all-purpose guy and QUIT TRYING TO MAKE HIM AN EVERY-DOWN BACK that he is NOT.
    Ryan Tannehill. Ah, what a relief. Life is good.

    He had an awful year and isn't getting any younger. Why keep him? Even for free.

    Worst rated o-line, and Reggie almost gets 1000 yards. Improve the o-line, Reggie will be a top 3 rb. We need to resign him.

    Shaven is the latest trend, C'mon Wild Bill get with the times. LOL.

    After being married for close to 13 years I'll take it anyway I can get it.

    Are we trying to improve the team or stubbornly make a point? After attending the Buffalo game it's inconceivable to me that the most dangerous player on that field is the one we're content to let get away.

    Tannehill actually contributed to the false sense of security in letting Reggie walk. A week later Reggie was 4 yards clear for a long touchdown reception against New England yet Tannehill missed him badly. All the Reggie knockers would have to gulp at the image of that burst touchdown, one of the signature plays of the season. Instead, they can spotlight the botched exchange at the goal line.

    This type of move is classic Jeff Ireland. He wants to make a point that he doesn't overpay, and he found a reasonable alternative cheaply in the 4th round. Well isn't that swell. So the conclusion is to make an assumption that Bush isn't needed, that one is better than two, that all your plans will unfold exactly as diagrammed. After all, that's certainly been the case during all the 7-9 seasons. The points and problematic matchups will stem elsewhere on our roster.

    Ireland's thesis is very similar mentality to all the posters who knocked Reggie as a Saint and didn't want him here. They are determined to let him go, as if somehow that makes their old opinion of him less inaccurate than it was.

    Why swing and miss once, when I can do it twice?

    Shaven is ridiculous, BTW. For all the talk about bad fashion and hairstyles and clothing in the '70s and '80s, this era will eventually, and appropriately, be mocked for -- among other things -- tramp stamps, no hair where it's supposed to be, and pants drooping below the butt crack. It's always hilarious when people want to believe their era has no flaws. My generation tried to pretend the same thing.
