UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Shefter reports the Washington Redskins did inquire about signing free agent TB Reggie Bush. If true, that's preposterous.
Washinton Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, the reigning NFL Rookie of the Year, wants his team to sign free agent TB Reggie Bush.
This doesn't make much sense because Bush wants to be a starting tailback and it is difficult to see the Redskins benching Alfred Morris, a top-5 rookie of the year candidate last year who set the franchise record for rushing yards in a season and rushing touchdowns for a rookie.
Beyond that, Bush will want a lot of money and the Redskins are about $3 million under the salary cap right now, much of which must be spent on signing 2013 draft picks. Even if the Redskins manage to clear enough space to fit Reggie Bush under their cap, it would entail ignoring far bigger priorities like upgrading the secondary and the right tackle position.
Thanks for the thoughts, RG3, but... No.
