MIAMI (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says the Miami Dolphins have agreed to a trade for New Orleans running back Reggie Bush pending renegotiation of his contract.
The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because contract talks with Bush and his agent were ongoing. It wasn’t known what the Saints would receive in the trade, which was first reported by Foxsports.com.
Bush is due about $11.8 million this season, the final year of his current contract.
The Dolphins seek a running back to pair with second-round draft choice Daniel Thomas. Last year’s leading rushers, Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams, are free agents.
