Reggie Bush could be heading to the San Diego Chargers, “I know there has been some speculation that Bush could resurface in his hometown of San Diego, especially with Darren Sproles likely leaving as a free agent”. Though Bill Willamson finds that to be unlikely. And Brandon Lloyd said in an interview that Tim Tebow is improving. Reggie Bush is not as good as you would hope for a number two overall pick, but I think that he’s often under-appreciated. He will bring a whole new dynamic to whatever team he is on next. The San Diego Chargers would be a nice fit. I think he could also be an excellent fit on a team like the Colts (though that’ll never happen), the Patriots (again probably won’t happen). I’d also think he could bring something useful to the Dolphins who are desperate for speed.
As the list moves closer to revealing football’s best player according to his peers, it will be interesting to see if the rankings continue to skew toward offensive players. On Sunday, eight of the 10 names unveiled were on the offensive side of the ball, with only Patrick Willis (No. 23) and James Harrison (No. 21) making the cut on D. There were a slew of guests on the “Top 100: Players of 2011 Reactions” show, including Philip Rivers, who came in at No. 26. The San Diego Chargers QB called into the show to talk about his ranking with NFL Network analysts Warren Sapp and Torry Holt.
