Dolphins unlikely to re-sign Reggie Bush?

Will Reggie Bush still be in Miami when the Dolphins unveil their new logo sometime during the coming months? - Mike Ehrmann

Reggie Bush wants to remain a Miami Dolphin--that much is clear. But does the team's Front Office feel the same about the seven-year vet and author of impressive back-to-back rushing campaigns in Miami? According to reports, not so much.

The Reggie Bush show in Miami might soon draw to a close.

Despite Bush's comments that he'd like to return to the Dolphins in 2013 because the team has "unfinished business," reports indicate that Miami is ready to move on without No. 22 in its backfield. CBSSports' Jason La Canfora (who continues to look more and more like Chaz Bono, no?) last week wrote that it's "highly unlikely" Bush will remain in Miami, and that his "ability to make explosive plays and contribute on special teams will lead to a nice (free agent) market forming for him."

NFL.com's Chris Wesseling expanded on La Canfora's original statement.

"While the Dolphins are expected to make Bush a cursory 'team-friendly' offer, the smart money is on the versatile back signing a short-term deal with a contender," Wesseling wrote. "Turning 28 in March, Bush is a long shot for a final mega contract even after averaging more than 1,000 rushing yards in two seasons with the Dolphins."

The main suitors for Bush this offseason? Wesseling lists the Detroit Lions and Cincinnati Bengals as the two teams most interested in acquiring a back with Bush's skill set.

As it stands, the clock is about to strike midnight on Bush's time with the Dolphins--a relationship that began, fittingly, with a deal brokered after midnight 18 months ago.
