The Miami Herald broke the news on Sunday morning, citing a source “close to the running back” who said three teams have been after Bush’s services, but the Dolphins are not one of them.

… Bush categorically will not return to the team in 2013, the source added.

Although the news shouldn’t be a surprise — it has become clear over the past few months that the Dolphins intend to go forward with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas — it might still be unsettling for many fans. Bush was a popular player, both locally and nationally, and was the closest thing the team had to a true star.
