Reggie Bush will not return to Miami

It appears as though Reggie Bush has suited up for the Miami Dolphins for the last time. According to the Miami Herald, at least three teams have already shown interest in the free agent running back. The contract offers Bush is expected to recieve are much higher than anything the Dolphins were willing to offer as they expressed that a deal would have had to be made on their terms. 

After drafting running back Lamar Miller in the fourth round of last year's draft, Miami's interest in retaining Bush dimished as they refused to work out a new contract during the regular season. Team officials met with Bush's camp at the NFL Combine however the two sides were unable to come to an agreement.

Since joining the Dolphins as the featured back in 2011, Bush rushed for over 1,000 yards for the first time in his career and followed that up by recording 986 yards on the ground a season ago. For the most part he was able to put his injury troubles aside on route to 15 total touchdowns in his two years dawning the aqua and orange.

As it stands, Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas will form the Dolphins backfield in 2013. It's remians unclear if the team will address the position in either free agency or the draft.
