Saints running backs look to the future

Saints running backs Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas are preparing for an offseason of uncertainty that could end with them playing for different teams.

Bush is due about $11.8 million next season and figures there's little chance the Saints will bring him back at that price.

Thomas' contract is expiring, although it won't be clear if he's a restricted or unrestricted free agent until the NFL and the players' union agree on a new labor agreement. Thomas says he cannot predict whether the Saints will genuinely try to retain him, but added that the organization sounds interested in keeping him around.

Bush says he's willing to re-negotiate with the Saints if that gets him an extension, but also may have to test the market.
