Each week of the season, JETSerious will be providing a look at the star player on the opposing team. We’ll look at their career thus far, and their potential impact in the upcoming game.
Week 3 the Jets will travel to Miami, and we’ve chosen to spotlight the Dolphins’ running back Reggie Bush.
Reggie Bush was drafted 2nd Overall in the 2006 NFL Draft, out of the University of Southern California (like Sanchez). He won the Heisman Trophy after a spectacular season in 2005 with the Trojans. He was eventually stripped of the trophy after allegedly receiving benefits, which violated the NCAA rules. But that’s another story…
Since being drafted by the Saints in 2006, Bush has often been considered as a complimentary Running Back. He was able to do great things with the Saints– like his big run vs. Arizona in the 2010 NFC Divisional Playoffs. (see below)
He gave great hope to Who-Dat Nation, but apparently wasn’t good enough for the Saints’ front office. In the 2011 NFL offseason, the Saints let the former #2 Overall Pick walk in free agency. Eventually, the Miami Dolphins signed Bush to a 4-year $32 Million deal.
Last year, Reggie Bush showed great signs that he’s capable of being a feature RB in the NFL. He was able to jump-start a poor Miami offense, which still remains that way. But this year is different. Let me tell you why…
