After another big day on the ground, Reggie Bush tells reporters he'd like to stay in Miami with the Dolphins.

After a convincing victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in which he again made an impact in a Miami Dolphins victory, Miami running back Reggie Bush reiterated his interest in staying with the Dolphins beyond the end of this season, when his contract is set to expire.

"I don't want to start bouncing around from one team to another," Bush told the Palm Beach Post's Greg Stoda. "I like this franchise and the city. I appreciate the role the Dolphins have given me as the lead running back. It's the job I want no matter where I play."

Pursuing a second consecutive 1,000-yard season in Miami, Bush rushed for 104 yards in the Dolphins' 24-3 victory over the Jaguars, bringing his season total to 895 yards. He has also rushed for five touchdowns on the year. Bush believes his performance in 2012 should be enough to convince teams he's still ready to play.

"I think I've answered any question about being able to run between the tackles," Bush said. "I'm 27 years old and hope I have another five seasons, or more, left to play."
