Ingram Downplays Tension With Reggie Bush

Mark Ingram downplays the apparent tension that the Saints’ decision to draft him has caused with Reggie Bush after Bush posted “It’s been fun New Orleans,” on his Twitter site, which quickly fueled speculation that Ingram’s addition to the Saints would bring about Bush’s departure. “It didn’t really bother me. I didn’t take it the wrong way or anything like that,” Ingram said. “Me and Reggie, I’ve known him for a little while now and he’s always been real cool with me, real encouraging, real positive.”

Bush has since said that he regretted the Twitter post, that his preference would be to stay with the Saints, and that he believes Ingram will be an asset to the team. Although Bush has chosen so far not to participate in workouts with his teammates, he has called Ingram since the draft, and Ingram said the conversation went well. “Reggie just congratulated me, told me just to enjoy the moment and that I deserve it,” Ingram said. “It’s something I’ve been working my whole life for. So everything with Reggie’s been real positive and he’s been real supportive throughout the whole process.”
