It seems like news on potential targets for the Rams are becoming far too frequent these days, but with the lockout there’s really not much news to write about other than that. I have to admit that I get happy every time I hear a national writer mention the Rams as a possible destination for a high-profile player, because for several of those down years the only time the Rams were mentioned were as the butt of a joke. Mike Florio over at ProFootballTalk.com had some interesting things to say about Saints running back Reggie Bush today, and I thought it warrantedmention. On Pro Football Talk Live earlier today, Florio discussed how he believes Bush wants out of New Orleans and how intrigued he is by the potential of Bush joining the Rams. Florio mentioned several teams who he feels would be a nice fit for Bush, but the Rams were atop his list.
I, for one, would absolutely love to see Reggie Bush on this team. Imagine how much a playmaker like Bush could thrive with an offensive mind like Josh McDaniels calling the plays. Imagine how much damage the offense could do with Steven Jackson and Bush together with Sam Bradford. This team needs playmakers, and you can say what you want about Bush, but he is one of the most gifted, exciting athletes in the NFL. I might feel differently if we were looking for a workhorse back, but we have one of those already.
