Eight veteran NFL free agents that really should just retire

Reggie Bush, running back

Reggie Bush

Bush hit an all-time low in 2016 that definitely calls for retirement. The 32-year-old washed-up running back finished last season with a horrific minus-three rushing yards on four attempts with the Buffalo Bills.

Making this negative stat all the more preposterous is former head coach Rex Ryan’s ideal plan for Bush prior to the start of last season.

“First off, with Reggie Bush, he’s such a talent but we want him to be almost like that Ferrari that we unleash and let people be like “Oh man, he’s out there!”

Unfortunately that Ferrari died in the garage on Day 1. The aftermath should see Bush joining Ryan among the unemployed of the NFL.

In addition to that poor season with Buffalo, Bush was nearly non-existent the prior year playing for the San Francisco 49ers. He played in a total of five games and managed just 28 rushing yards and eight carries. Bush’s season was cut short in Week 5 after he sustained a knee injury.

It is hard to believe that Bush was the No. 2 overall pick by the New Orleans Saints in 2006. What is even more difficult to imagine is Bush suiting up anywhere in 2017.
