Saints re-sign Raphael Bush (according to Raphael Bush)

Saints make their first offseason move by resigning Bush for another year.

At least according to his own Twitter feed.

What does this tell me.


Rafael Bush
IAQ
Malcolm Jenkins
Roman Harper

All under contract for next year, yet we were scouting Safeties@ respective bowl games.



1 of the above players might not be here next year.


My guess Harper.


Just a theory though.




Unless you take a guy like Cooper Taylor in the 6th which would give u 5 Safeties but we also have 2 other safeties on the PS from last year. I don't know but i sense some change coming here.

Good! He was a good player for us this year. We need competition at safety.

Bush was probably the best safety on the team last year. Very well rounded and a special teams ace. He's the type of guy who may eventually get a shot at starting SS.

we would be foolish to cut our best safety and one of our best defenders, Roman Harper. without neck we would have zero aggressive run stoppers

I guess Jenkins is a better candidate for cutting. Harper still has some guaranteed money coming to him and has two years left on his contract. Jenkins has only one year left and the dead money would be lot less for him being cut. If that is the case then Payton would take a hit to his pride for cutting a first round choice so soon.

The Saints under Payton have traditionally kept a large number of safeties for special teams and such. I remember the running joke on the board back in 2006 about fielding an all safety defense.

Bush was a decent backup but he wasnt better than Harper, hes willing to hit receivers just like IAQ but both were hesitant coming downhill on rbs from what i remember. They are good young players though

Good move. He's a valuable sprecial teams player. Not only that but we saw some nice flashes when he got playing time.
