Reggie Bush scored three touchdowns in the Saints' first two playoff games, but he had a career-low 117 touches on offense in the regular season and has been hampered by knee injuries for much of his career. He hasn't lived up to the high bar that was set when New Orleans selected him with No. 2 overall pick in '06, and he admitted during in the days preceding the Super Bowl that he hasn't lived up to his own expectations. There were rumblings throughout the season that he will be asked to take a pay cut or face being released in the offseason, as his base salary is $8 million in 2010. Bush was asked about his contract situation on Feb. 3. "Anything is possible," he said. "That's kind of the mindset you have in this league. As for me, I would love nothing more than to be in New Orleans for the rest of my career."
