Do you even know what they traded to get Bush? A guy nobody cares about and they swapped 6th round picks with the Saints. Then they got Bush to sign a 2 year extension as part of the deal. That's hardly a commitment in terms of trade assets. Now you think they will just let Bush walk, and spend a bunch of high round picks on a guy who has had a worse career and injury history than Bush when they traded for him? No way Jose. No chance of this happening. If anything they might give up a 4th alone for him, but that's about it. They aren't that needy of a team, and RBs tend to be low value commodities around the league.
Also, you know they spent a 2nd round pick on Daniel Thomas in 2011 and a 4th on Lamar Miller in 2012, right?
