Miami Dolphins Trade Bait: Reggie Bush?

Reggie Bush had an ultra-productive 2011 and he continues to work hard, often being the last man standing at Miami Dolphin practices.  He is primed to excel once again even though many NFL writers still consider him too small and fragile to have success for another full season.  I believe in Reggie and have drafted him in multiple fantasy leagues.  I think he is undervalued as he was last year.  He is a game-breaker that spear-heads Miami’s deepest position.  Along with Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller, the Dolphins’ offensive backfield is their strength on that side of the ball.

If the Dolphins are truly in “win now” mode then they will parlay the second round pick they received for Vontae Davis into an offensive weapon for rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill and why stop there?  Miller has the potential to be a player similar to Bush so why not trade away Reggie Bush for another receiver?  It makes sense.  Take from the rich and give to the poor.  Tannehill might already be without Jake Long for a few games so give him support.

There are plenty of teams that could use a number one running back like Bush.  How about the Pittsburgh Steelers?  Well, they don’t really have anyone to trade except some guy named Mike Wallace.

How would the Dolphins look with Tannehill, Miller, D. Thomas, and two all-pro receivers?  Much better.  Jeff Ireland needs to make something happen.  The natives are beginning to get restless again as the Tannehill honeymoon is coming to an end.
