http://www.mtxoom.com/political/ Reggie Bush Demanding a Contract Renegotiation With New Orleans Saints Undisclosed sources have revealed that former Heisman Trophy winner, Reggie Bush, has been in contact with New Orleans Saints General Manager, Mickey Loomis, to discuss Bush's demands for contract renegotiation prior to the opening of the 2010 NFL season. Bush reportedly earned a base salary in the range of $2.5 Million in 2009 but, with incentive bonuses, is said to have topped the $7 Million mark. However, he has now publicly announced that he is disappointed that the Saints could not put together an incentive package for him that was more commensurate with the compensation he received from the University of Southern California as a student/athlete. Bush has been quoted as saying, "Although my years here in New Orleans have been enjoyable and successful, I can no longer remain silent regarding this matter. In light of the fact that the NCAA has now learned of the numerous violations while I was attending the University of Southern California, I am able to speak freely and openly. I have quietly suffered through the past few seasons knowing that I accepted a severe pay cut when I entered the NFL. This has resulted in detrimental financial hardship, not only to myself, but also to my parents, friends, and other family members. USC took a clear and decisive path to securing the future of my family, but the same level of commitment has yet to be shown towards me here in New Orleans." Following Bush's statement, his stepfather, LaMar Griffin, was observed speaking with a real estate agent in his hometown of San Diego, reportedly seeking a larger house with a pool and jacuzzi. It is doubtful that New Orleans will be able to match the compensation package given to Reggie Bush during USC's 2005-06 season when he won the coveted Heisman Trophy. Doing so would would put the Saints over the salary cap and subject them to fines and sanctions by the league... Deja Vu all over again... Bush's agent was unavailable for comment.
