Bush was the centerpiece of this offense last year. If we let him go we had better look to replace him. Personally, I like Eddie Lacy out of Alabama as a 2nd round option. I think if we combined him with Lamar Miller and kept Daniel Thomas on the bench as depth we'd be good at the position. But I hope it doesn't come to that. I like Bush's playmaking ability and I'm hoping we can sign him for a deal in the 4 year $12M range.
1200 yards from scrimmage is not impressive for the 'centerpiece' of the offense.
How many players got more than that just receiving or just rushing?
Bush is a lot of hype and a little bit of production. But even I think he'll get 4/$12 from us or someone else. That's not a lot of money for a 'centerpiece' and I'd be happy with him at that price.
