    Miami Dolphins' Ireland: Reggie Bush still has Value

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...till-has-value

    INDIANAPOLIS -- Miami Dolphins fans assume by now that Reggie Bush will be playing elsewhere. Publicly, general manager Jeff Ireland doesn't see it that way.
    "I certainly would" see a role for Bush on the team, Ireland told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine on Thursday. "You would love to have his skill set on the football team."

    I see a role for Bush as well, but cannot for the life of me, understand why he isn't being used for many screen plays per game. Remember? Like the ones the Bills used to ram down our throats in the 80's. Very effective when used with someone like Bush's skillset. Never envisioned Bush as a between the tackles runner, he just dances way too much for my liking.

    I see a role for Bush IF used correctly AND if he is willing to play for 2.5m per year. Otherwise, I would let him go and give the young ones a chance to develop.

    Other tibbits from the article:

    1. Ireland indicated the Dolphins already have decided to use the franchise tag. He said there was a "likelihood" of it at one point. At another point, he said he had a "pretty good idea" of where he was going for it.
    2. Ireland sounded less optimistic about re-signing tackle Jake Long. He said it was a "complicated" negotiation that has elements other contracts would not have.
    3. My guess for that tag: Defensive tackle Randy Starks. Ireland said that keeping the defensive line strong is a priority. Defensive tackle Randy Starks is another option. Ireland said it was "very important" to get Starks back.
    The other option for a tag: Cornerback Sean Smith. Ireland spoke very positively about Smith's experience and play. The Miami Herald has reported that Smith won't get the tag. Ireland said there was a "long way to go" in contract talks with Smith, but he felt optimistic about them.

    Reggie excels when he gets lined up in single coverage. I was disappointed that they did not exploit defenses more by putting him in the slot or wide. I would definitely like to see him back but only if they use him in a role like that.

    No problem there. But only if:

    a) He is used properly. Not to attempt to "pound"
    b) Situational
    c) For the proper salary (approx. $2.5m/yr.)

    Yes....he DOES care.

    But....... sometimes........ caring is just not enough.

    If it were, then I would be an undrafted free-agent pickup for the Fins.
