    McAllister -- 8 years, $50.1 million.
    Bennett -- 2 years, $3 million.
    Bush -- who knows, probably close to what McAllister is making.

    That will be close to $100 million tied up in one position. And I'm sure McAllister won't have any problems with allowing a rookie RB to walk right in and cut his #s in half.

    I know I look forward to seeing how this problem is taken care of :).

    I have a feeling that people are gonna be praising the Texans for not taking Bush before its all said and done.

    The Jets had their chance to trade for Bush and didn't take it.

    Actually, NO made it pretty clear they weren't trading Bush, even though NYJ tried to trade up. So blame it on NO, not NYJ, and don't expect any trades any time soon. I think they want him there. I'd expect Stallworth to get cut, and maybe even McCallister in a year or two

    Aren't the Saints in financial trouble now? Too, I don't think the Jets were offering much to trade-up, plus-as another poster mentioned-for all the hype about Bush, no team wanted to step up and get him!!!

    great job doing ur homework, i knew they had a lot of money tied into deuce but i had no idea how much. Somebody is going to get cut or denied an extension because of all this salary space. I wonder who it will be. Maybe LeCharles Bentley was the first of many.

    They also lost their best DE to the Eagles

    Saints will be in line to draft Brady Quinn or Adrian Peterson next year.

    In my mind.
    that's going to get real messy if there are any performance clauses or LTBE bonuses\incentives.

    Maybe they will revive the Wishbone...

    I had this theory that Benson drafted him to boost ticket sales. THen after all the season tickets, etc. had sold, he would trade him to NYJ for D'Brick & future considerations. Low? have you SEEN their owner?

    Most 2-14 teams have that same problem.

    For the record, I will state that, as long as they maintain current ownership/FO/coaching, that Saints will not win more than 8 games with Reggie Bush.

    A whole new coaching staff is in place, what could be so bad about the new coachig staff when we have yet to see any results on the field? Not one assistant coach from Jim Hasletts staff was retained. This is a whole new staff.

    That poster would be me.

    I don't get the Saints drafting him at all. You lost your best lineman in LeCharles Bentley and your best DL in Darren Howard. So MW is gone...why would you NOT take Ferguson?

    Now you have a 100 Million dollar backfield....No line to block for them and No Defense to get you to ball back. :confused: Maybe they'll try reggie at CB too?

    Again I say for how godly Reggie Bush was nobody seemed willing to put up the package to move up and SERIOUSLY get him.

    You lost all credibility with this.

    Nothing you say can be taken serious with uninformed comments like this.

    I would disagree with that, were they not in the same division with Tampa Bay(Improved), Atlanta(Improved), & Carolina(Improved). That is at least 5 losses right there. Maybe 6 :stirpot:

    How will the folKs of NO react when Bush does not sign? How will Joe Horn/Deuce react? What is going to happen if Bush is asked to go to court due to the allegations? A lot of questions and there are few answers.
