Reggie Bush Doesn't Think Players Play Harder In A Contract Year

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush is in the final year of his contract, but he says that won't change anything about the effort he puts forth on the field.

In a radio interview with Jorge Sedano of WQAM in Miami, Bush was asked if players try harder in contract years:

"No. I mean, I don’t know. I can’t really speak for other guys; I can only speak for myself. Obviously, I’m at the end of my contract, last year, final year, but for me, it’s the last thing on my mind. I’m focusing on being a leader on this team, being effective when I’m in the game, helping out the younger guys, getting better and helping this team progress on a weekly basis, on a daily basis and making a push in this division and in the playoffs. … There will come a time and a place for that to handle that, but right now it’s football time."

Bush is coming off his best season as a pro, when he rushed for 1,086 yards and six touchdowns.
