Bush, Dolphins likely to part ways: After two very productive seasons in Miami, it looks like Reggie Bush has played his final game as a member of the Dolphins. The team is reportedly “highly unlikely” to offer the veteran running back a new contract. Over the past two campaigns, Bush has compiled more than 2,600 scrimmage yards and 15 touchdowns. Instead, it appears Miami would like to clear a path for Lamar Miller, who became a bigger part of the offense late in the season. Bush is certain to find a landing spot relatively quickly since there are a number of teams in the market for a dynamic back with the ability to run and catch the football.
Jennings selling GB home: Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is packing his bags. Literally. The veteran wideout has put his Green Bay-area home up for sale, further fueling the belief that he won’t return to the team next season. Jennings will be a free agent this offseason and it’s unlikely the team will bring him back for an eighth season. While injuries limited him to just eight games this season, Jennings had become one of the league’s most productive receivers. That included a three-year run from 2008-10 when he caught 224 passes for 3,670 yards and 25 touchdowns. He will certainly find a good home somewhere next season. In the meantime, it could pave the way for Randall Cobb to become a much larger part of the Packers’ passing attack in 2013.
Jets discussing Russell: Cue the jokes about the New York Jets adding another quarterback who can’t play quarterback. The team is reportedly having “informal discussions” about former No. 1 overall pick JaMarcus Russell. The former LSU star played parts of three tumultuous seasons with the Oakland Raiders and hasn’t seen an NFL snap since 2009. Stories surfaced last week that Russell is planning a comeback. More than likely, any discussions the Jets are having are truly informal. But with Gang Green’s recent circus atmosphere and history of subpar quarterbacks, any headlines involving the Jets and one of the all-time draft busts are certainly going to be snickered at.
