Reggie Bush isn’t a Houston Texan just yet.
Texans’ owner Bob McNair denied an ESPN report that said he’d given Pete Carroll a personal guarantee that Bush would be selected first:
Pete Carroll did call me, but he talked to me about Bush and never asked if we were going to take him, and if he had I wouldn’t have told him that because we haven’t even hired our coach.
We certainly want Reggie to get an epic NFL payday, we can’t help but fantasize that he wind up somewhere better than the Texans. Not to mention, we’ve had a sneaking feeling about the Texans going after hometown boy Vince since day one–so don’t say we didn’t warn you if McNair pulls the switcheroo.
More on this as it develops.
