Reggie Bush Says He’ll Retire If He Doesn’t Sign With A Team During Season


Free agent RB Reggie Bush tells TMZ Sports that he’s still hoping to sign on with a team during the season, but if no opportunity surfaces, he’ll retire from the NFL.

According to TMZ, Bush has been training hard in the hope of secure a shot with another team and is in “tremendous shape.

Bush is also willing to convert to playing wide receiver if it would help his chances with a team.

The last Bush update we have is from back in May when he mentioned that he plans on playing in 2017.

“That’s my plan,” Bush said, via “Going into year 12, I still feel like I have a lot left to prove, a lot left to give this game before I’m done. I don’t want to put a number on how many years I have left. I think once you get past year 10, you just gotta take it one year at a time and go from there. I’m still excited, still looking forward to playing football again this season, still staying in shape, still working out. I plan to be somewhere in September.

Bush added that he’s spoken to a few teams but plans to wait for the right situation to surface for him.

“I’ve spoken to a few teams, yes,” Bush said. “But I’m gonna be patient and make sure I make the right decision for me and for my family.”

Earlier in the year, Bush said he would retire if no opportunity surfaced for him to join an NFL during the 2017 season, and unfortunately, there wasn’t any reported interest.

Bush, 32, is a former first-round pick of the Saints back in 2006. He spent five years in New Orleans before he was traded to the Dolphins in 2011. After two years with the Lions, Bush signed a one-year contract with the 49ers but his 2015 season, unfortunately, came to an early end after he suffered a torn MCL.

The Bills signed him to a one-year, $1.5 million contract last year. He’s currently an unrestricted free agent.

In 2016, Bush appeared in 13 games for the Bills and rushed for -3 yards on 12 carries and one touchdown to go along with seven receptions for 90 yards receiving. He also contributed 103 kick return yards and 13 punt return yards.
