Atlanta Falcons are trying to steal Rafael Bush back from the Saints
Rafael Bush the former South Carolina State University defensive back could be landing closer to his South Carolina home.
According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Atlanta Falcons have given an offer sheet to Saints RFA safety Rafael Bush. The Saints have until April 8 to match, but would receive no compensation if they didn’t.
Bush’s potential Atlanta return to the Falcons comes after an interesting career path to this point. He was on the active roster briefly in 2010 before being cut and signed back to the practice squad in 2011. The Broncos then stole him away for a year before he signed with the Saints, where he played 29 games in two seasons with six starts. In those games, he managed 60 tackles, 6 pass deflections and an interception.
