There are at least three teams that contacted Bush in the last two day, a source told the Miami Herald. The salaries discussed are said to be significant.
At the same time, the Dolphins were not one of those teams that contacted Bush’s representatives, and Bush categorically will not return to the team in 2013, the source added.
Although the news shouldn’t be a surprise — it has become clear over the past few months that the Dolphins intend to go forward with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas — it might still be unsettling for many fans. Bush was a popular player, both locally and nationally, and was the closest thing the team had to a true star.
Detroit and Arizona are among the teams said to have interest in Bush, 28.
Since joining the Dolphins via trade before the 2011 season, Bush has averaged 1,036 rushing yards per season and has scored 12 touchdowns.
