2011 NFL Trade Grades: How Is Reggie Bush Fitting in with Miami Dolphins?

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush has never eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in a season and probably won't, especially not this year.

The Dolphins did not re-sign Ronnie Brown or Ricky Williams, and for good reason – the Dolphins want to be more of a passing threat than a smash-mouth football team.

The instantaneous change in offensive philosophies has Miami fans wondering what the identity of the football team is. Yes, they'll pass the ball until quarterback Chad Henne's arm falls off, but who will carry the load?

Bush has never been a feature back, averaging a meager 13 carries a game, and his best season rushing was in 2007 when he rushed for 581 yards and four touchdowns.

The former Heisman winner and number two overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft can be utilized elsewhere.

Did the Dolphins make a mistake trading for Bush or will he be the missing ingredient to push the team into the playoffs and save head coach Tony Sparano's job?
