Bush Details Payton’s Answer When Agent Told Saints Not to Draft Him

By Wilton Jackson | SI

Reggie Bush spent 11 seasons with five different teams in his NFL career. However, the first five years of his pro football career started as an electrifying asset to the Saints’ franchise in 2006, a team that was invigorated and emotional a year after the devastation and catastrophic damage of Hurricane Katrina.

However, before the Saints drafted Bush at No. 2 in the 2006 NFL draft following an exciting college football career at USC, he spent the months leading up to the draft thinking that he was going to be selected as the first pick to the Texans. But on April 28, 2006, the night before the draft, the Texans changed their plans and then Saints coach Sean Payton wanted Bush in New Orleans.

“My agent had been talking to Houston’s GM Charley Casserly at the time… the entire process,” Bush said recently on the I AM ATHLETE podcast. “You know when you go to the [NFL] Combine… I didn’t even interview with the other 31 teams because they was like he was not going to be here. I only spoke to Houston. That’s it. … I am thinking… I am going to Houston, looking for property down there already.”

LONDON (AP) — Saints backup quarterback Andy Dalton is preparing to square off with Kirk Cousins again in London.

Dalton is expected to start after Jameis Winston was listed as doubtful for New Orleans’ game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Dalton took first-team snaps again Friday with Winston missing a third consecutive practice because of a back injury.

“I’ll be ready if my number is called,” Dalton said. “I’ve been in this situation before where you’re the backup and have to step in and play.”

The team’s injury report listed Winston (back/ankle) as doubtful to play in the NFL’s first international game of the season, while wide receiver Michael Thomas (foot), offensive guard Andrus Peat (concussion) and safety Marcus Maye (rib) were all ruled out.

Saints first-year coach Dennis Allen said they’ll “take it to the last minute, but I think it’s doubtful” that Winston plays. ...

Maybe, this time, the tie will be broken.

Six years after quarterback Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton played to a 27-27 tie at Wembley Stadium, they’ll meet in a different stadium in the same city, with both playing for different teams.

On October 30, 2016, Cincinnati and Washington tied in London. Tomorrow, the Vikings (quarterbacked by Cousins) and the Saints (with Dalton replacing Jameis Winston) will square off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Cousins threw for 458 yards in the game. Dalton generated 284.

Dalton actually has had more success than Cousins during their respective careers...

After a Week 3 loss to the Carolina Panthers, the New Orleans Saints (1-2) remain on the road for an international Week 4 matchup in London against the Minnesota Vikings (2-1).

Here are four things to keep a close eye on.

Jameis Winston was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report for Sunday’s game, as the Saints starting quarterback continues to manage back and ankle injuries. That means Andy Dalton may need to step up and in for the offense. Dalton was the Cincinnati Bengals’ starter for nine seasons before sliding down the depth chart of two other teams and joining New Orleans...

LONDON — Mark Ingram called this a business trip.

It’s been a weeklong trip, a journey that took the New Orleans Saints more than 4,600 miles across the pond to England.

Yeah, the players got a chance to do some sightseeing, watch some soccer, do some shopping and some fine dining on international cuisine. Many of them brought their families to enjoy the experience with them.

But for all the memories they’ve made and all the pictures thy've taken, this trip will inevitably be remembered for one thing and one thing only: how the Saints do when they play the Minnesota Vikings in a game...

Our staff breaks down how they see Sunday playing out when the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings play in London.

Saints 23, Vikings 21: The defense and running game will need to carry the load in this one, and I believe they can. If the defense can pressure Kirk Cousins in the pocket, he'll be prone to turnovers. The short fields will be just what the doctor ordered for new quarterback Andy Dalton and the Saints' injury-riddled offense.

After missing all three practices this week, New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston has officially been downgraded from doubtful to out. Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton will assume the role as Saints signal caller in Winston’s stead. The 11-year veteran worked with the first team offense all week in London, where the game will be played.

When it comes to backup quarterbacks, there are certainly few options out there more experienced than Dalton. The former Cincinnati Bengals second-round draft selection has appeared in 152 regular season games. He has also stepped up in relief of...

Andy Dalton will get his first start for the Saints, with Taysom Hill backing him up.

The Saints have already ruled out wide receiver Michael Thomas, so their passing game will be missing two key players against Minnesota. The Vikings are...
