Top 10 Biggest Rookie NFL Contracts of All Time
by in Football

7. Reggie Bush – RB – New Orleans Saints: 5 Years/$62 million

The former Heisman Trophy winner was one of the first players to ring in the era of gaudy rookie contracts. The running back from USC was the second overall pick by the New Orleans Saints in 2006, and wore the price tag that came with it. Bush signed for 5 years, and was guaranteed $26.5 million of his $62 million contract. Bush currently enjoys a relatively successful career. He was an All-Pro in 2008 and made the Pro Bowl as an alternate in 2013. He also won the Super Bowl with the Saints, but never quite panned out to be the franchise player the Saints had hoped he would become. He left New Orleans and played with the Miami Dolphins before moving on to sign with the Detroit Lions, with whom he currently plays. Known as a very explosive player, Bush may unfortunately be remembered best as being on the receiving end of a crushing hit by Sheldon Brown during the 2006 Divisional Playoff game against Philadelphia.
