According to ESPN Insider, the Titans are one of the teams who could potentially be interested in Reggie Bush should he not be retained by the Saints. Here's what they have to say:
Reggie Bush's continued employment with the New Orleans Saints was a subject of debate all season long by pundits and fans. We don't have anything concrete from anyone inside the organization, but it was thought earlier that there was no way that the team would bring him back for the $8 million he's owed in 2010. If the Super Bowl winds up being Bush's last game for the Saints, he went out with a relative thud: five rushes for 25 yards, four catches for 38 yards and one punt return for 4 yards.
If he's not retained -- and that continues to be a big "if" -- two NFC West teams might lead the charge in bidding for him. The first is the Seattle Seahawks; the Pete Carroll connection is obvious, but the team has a pretty big need for a versatile RB, too. The other team is the 49ers, who need a complement to Frank Gore. Niners beat writer Matt Maiocco recently wrote, "It would fill a major need to get an elusive running back to play no more than a handful of offensive snaps a game while also taking over the punt- and kick-return chores." Who does that sound like?
But what about the Tennessee Titans? They're set at starting running back, but Bush has never been a traditional rusher anyway. What the Titans do need is an explosive returner (check), someone to come in to give Chris Johnson a rest from time to time (check) and another suitable receiving target for Vince Young (check). Are we missing something here?
