Report: Dolphins think RB Lamar Miller could be better than RB Reggie Bush

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported on Monday, via sources, that it is "highly unlikely" free-agent running back Reggie Bush @reggie_bush returns for a third season with the Dolphins. If La Canfora is correct, Miami probably won't fret much. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the team thinks 2012 rookie Lamar Miller @millertime_6 can be better than Bush. Miller gained 250 yards on just 51 carries this season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Bush is still in his prime years and has shaken off the injury-prone tag while with the Dolphins, but getting rid of him for Miller's sake would be a smart business decision for Miami. Miller is younger, cheaper, bigger and faster. He is definitely not as skilled as Bush at this stage, especially as a receiver, but it looks like he will be a very popular sleeper during the 2013 preseason. Odds are Miller will be the Dolphins' leading rusher next year. Daniel Thomas will probably be factor around the goal line, and Bush will be a valuable weapon somewhere else.

I hope he goes to Atlanta, He would fit in great with Turner. Just might be the right combination to push them over the edge to the Super Bowl. Of course he can't get hurt, to do it.

Reggie,Reggie,Reggie Go Falcons

But they already have a similar, much cheaper and much younger RB behind Turner in Jacquizz Rodgers. The Falcons' running game needs to find a replacement for Turner rather than bring in another multi-purpose, smaller back.

I think the rams should go after him. Reggie bush and Daryl Richardson, while somewhat the same kind of back, would proved a good punch for them if they do indeed get rid of steven jackson. They would be dumb to let Jackson go tho.
