But I don't see anyone confusing him for one of the top RBs in the league.
Point is, I think he could be cheaper than many think.
It's possible that Reggie Bush's contract demands could be dictated by the market. I think Shonn Greene could have similar problems. Both backs are relatively young but will be viewed as tandem backs rather than being the overall answer in a team's rushing attack.
Both guys would actually benefit from being in a strong tandem situation. Greene can be an effective closer late in games and late in the season. Bush hasn't shown the explosiveness that he has had in the past but he's become a capable NFL running back. He sees and hits holes better than he did in New Orleans. Because of injuries, He just isn't the home run threat that he could have been on a more consistent basis and Miami poorly utilzed him as a receiver.
