New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush is scheduled to give a deposition on Feb. 25 in connection with the lawsuit filed against him by Lloyd Lake, Lake's attorney said.
It would be the first time Bush faced extended questioning about accusations that he received almost $300,000 in cash and benefits by representatives of a fledgling sports marketing agency between November 2004 and January 2006, when he played at Southern California. The allegations could cause USC to forfeit games and Bush to lose the Heisman Trophy he won in 2005 if they are proven true.
