    Default Ireland and Reggie's agent start very preliminary discussions about contract.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/09/2...#storylink=cpy

    " But now that course might change. After Bush went off against Oakland, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland and Segal talked about having future contract discussions. Call it the preliminary step toward re-signing Bush."

    If Reggie Bush decided that Miami will be his future, it really can have so much impact on everything else that doesn't happen on the field.

    Players around this league have respect for Reggie Bush, a lot of them growing up with him being a fan, it would help repair the culture around here if he decides to stay, hope he does, he's ballin on the field..

    This dude is growing into a leader, becoming a true blood, nobody out works him, he's diverse, and we know he's got talent..let's not over think this, the combination of positive factors is damn strong..

    I really didn't expect much from Reggie Bush coming in. Sure a few crazy rushes, but not the consistent force he's been turning into.

    The dude deserves to be paid on the level of any of the top backs in the league, especially so if he's actively trying to step into a leadership role and be an anchor for this team.

    I think its a no brainer to get a deal done with Reggie. At this point, he's our only playmaker.

    Its pretty typical for a RB to relax after getting a big contract.I dont think Reggie Bush will be one of those .He has a great work ethic and we should have enough cap space to sign him to a top 10 RB contract

    Philbin has to be impressed with Reggie's work ethic this is good for the team as a whole.
    That's why they play the games!

    I think easing into it and then stringing it out towards the latter half of the season is a better idea. They need to see if he can handle a real workload before rewarding him as if he can.

    Always dangerous giving a RB a hefty contract. The track record isn't pretty. That said, not sure the Dolphins have a choice. He's the best player on offense.

    Yeah Reggie would set a good example of, "work hard and you will be rewarded." Sort of the converse of Vontae. Fall in line or get out.

    I remain very conflicted about Reggie Bush. He's by far my favorite player and everything you could want in an athlete: Talented, fun to watch, hard working, dead sexy , etc.

    But running back is still a plug & play position.

    That being said, I agree with everybody else that signing Reggie would be a great example of what kind of player this franchise is willing to reward.

    Weird situation here though. Ireland could do what might not be a terrible thing in letting a player who plays a plug and play position walk, and the fan in me would be furious. He could potentially be making a mistake if he plays a plug and play position huge money at the risk of other more crucial positions but the fan in me would absolutely love it.

    All in all, wrong or right this Dolphin fan wants to see Reggie Bush be a Dolphin for the rest of his career.

    Since Bush is such a hard worker getting him with for two more years could help set the tone for the team.

    The way the Dolphins do their contracts lately it would probably be a 3 year contract that is really a 2 year contract like Soilia.
    Thank you firing Philbin! Thank you for firing Philbin! Thank you for taking in consideration all of the love on this planet and God above for finally firing Joe Philbin.

    Pay him. He's only 27. Sign him to a 5 year deal where we can cut him after 3 or 4.

    The scientific dedication to the craft is what I admire, the ability to understand as a million dollar prof athlete, you eat for fuel, not for pleasure, for this athlete, the sport and position specific training is off the charts, you combine that with a foundation of talent, and you have a very smart, conscientious, calculated, football player..

    Why folks like Ronnie brown, Vernon Carey, John Jerry, etc, cannot understand this important approach to the game, why ownership is not taking steps in order to make sure everyone does, is mind boggling to me..

    Every mans body can reach their personal optimum level, but the intelligence to conceptualize the importance, is where many fail.
