Bush is a pro bowl WR waiting to happen
    Do you have a link to these people who gave Reggie a 1st round grade as a receiver?

    Reggie caught more passes as a rookie because he was Drew Brees check down receiver out of the backfield.

    Yes!! I would do that in a heartbeat.

    Sign him for #3 WR money and trade Bess to Oakland(where he is from) and draft Marquiess Goodwin to backup the oft injured Bush. Cap ramifications would be negligible.

    BUT, the other guy was right, don't see Reggie going for it. He could go to the playoffs with Green Bay next year as a RB, or join Cinci or the Browns for big bucks.

    no link, but Charley Casserly, the former HOU GM who passed on him for Mario said he had a 1st round grade on him as a receiver but passed on him because he didn't want to pay 9M for a PART TIME running back
    here's the only scouting report I could find on him at all http://www.draftclass.com/prospects/index.php?id=180 which says " At 6'0, he could line up at receiver in the NFL and look at-home." and....... "Bush could easily line up at receiver and thrive at that position"

    I want to see upgrades at WR too, but the way people are talking about Hartline and Bess? It's disgusting. Both players are have a lot to do with why we won any games the past two years. Both players are very dependable catching the ball and their work ethic sets the bar for younger players. I hate seeing talk like this.

    I hate seeing them put the ball in the endzone A COMBINED TWO TIMES out of 133 catches for the two of them

    Bush is one of the most explosive players in the NFL... why not put him at slot receiver and let him do what he does best, which is have the ball in open space and make people miss!
