Reggie Bush seems to think his days in New Orleans are numbered. The Saints took Alabama running back Mark Ingram with the 28th pick in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday night and it didn’t take the Bush, who forfeited his 2005 Heisman Trophy, long to tweet his reaction to the drafting of the 2009 winner.
It’s been fun New Orleans.
In addition to Bush,who is due to make $11 million in base salary, the Saints have Pierre Thomas and Chris Ivory, but Ingram can do what all of those guys do. And he’s younger and could be better — immediately. A few hours after the draft ended, Bush added:
Congrats to Mark Ingram on being selected to New Orleans. He will be a great addition to the Saints backfield just as he was in Alabama
