Default Bush deal updates

as per a part of an ESPN Insider article by Todd Mcshay of Scouts Inc. titled "McShay's 'True' Buzz: Texans not so torn"

Quote:
Bush remains Texans' preferred choice

Just so everyone is clear; the investigation of alleged illegal benefits provided to former USC running back Reggie Bush and his family is a prevalent college football story, but it will have no bearing on Bush's draft stock.

If Bush is not the first overall player selected in Saturday's draft, it will have everything to do with a failed negotiation between his agent, Joel Segal, and the Texans' front office. After all, what does Texans general manager Charley Casserly care if Bush and his family were living rent-free for the past 12 months?

The Texans continue to play leverage games by keeping contract talks open with NC State defensive end Mario Williams, but Bush is the player the Texans have targeted and continue to target with the top choice. According to what we're hearing, Bush could have a deal done with the Texans by Friday afternoon.

Dan Pompeo of Sporting News was just on Cold Pizza and said that the Texans and Bush started serious negotiations yesterday and look to get a deal done by fri. he also said that mario williams was considered but Bush was pretty much their man all along. he said looks like the Texans are gonna get their man.

So much for Bush holding out of camp. What ever $$ he misses out on because of his parents he should deduct that from the value of the house he intended on getting the in the first place. My guess though is that it'll still be a very nice house.

This is good news. I would like to be able to buy my Reggie Bush Jersey ahead of time and focus on what we get with our 2nd rounder and the chance of getting Dave Thomas.

Well, let's hope this is true. Either way, even if they don't have a deal in place, I say take him. We have 3-4 months before we have to sign him.

I have to discount the article because McShay insists that Mario Williams is a "leverage game." Defensive staff is going to war for drafting Williams and obviously the offensive staff wants Bush, and Kubiak and Casserly are caught in between and will probably end up making the ultimate call. If Williams can significantly underbid Bush or if other unexpected problems arise with either player, that is going to make a difference at this point.

Not saying that we won't draft Bush -- because at the end of the day I still think we will -- but it's hardly a done deal, even aside from the negotiations aspect.

I never thought i'd see the day but I agree with you. I don't think Bush will be that easy to sign but I do see the Texans drafting him.

I agree. Rich on Sports Radio 610 makes seems like the end of the world if they don't have a deal done before the draft when only 3 number ones have been signed before the draft. He really needs to take break.

He has an agenda and interest in Reggie Bush isn't part of it.

As far as player evaluations go, I read they were supposed to be settling the top of the draftboard yesterday... don't remember where I read it.

Yeah, I was shocked to see a few position rankers not having Thomas even in the top 3 or 4 TEs.

He was a force in the title game. Practically kept the chains moving all night in very critical situations. I think he'll be available, but I bet we pas him up...........as usual. :brickwall

he's got good hands, but...that's about it. most people have him ranked out of the top 5 for TE's. i think he'll be decent. definitely a later round steal.

I hope you are joking, if he holds onto his original contract demands it would be insane to sign him.:brickwall

You mean the "original" contract demands that were verified to be false by both Bush and his agent? Yes, I agree they would be insane to sign him to contract demands that he never asked for.

i got word Reggie's agents have asked him to come to Houston because it appears the deal is close to done...............5 yrs at 24.6 in guarranteed cash............they still have to get incentive money and the voidable yrs done.............and they are going to add option clauses to extend the deal when they CBA allows it.................looks like you guys truly now own the best RB in the AFC South.....................Mario and Bricks agents have leaked this because now Loomis is on the clock.............many are looking to see what happpens now with slot two.............................congrats.
