Saints do the right thing

The New Orleans Saints made the right move Saturday in the NFL Draft by selecting former USC star Reggie Bush with the second overall pick.

The franchise has shown it's serious about turning itself into a contender. With a healthy Drew Brees at quarterback and the return of explosive running back Deuce McAllister from a knee injury, the addition of Bush should revive New Orleans' offense and special teams, if his return skills are utilized. Bush has said he just wants to play football and Saints officials want to avoid a potential holdout at all costs -- another good move.

Bush's selection should also have a positive effect on the fans in the Crescent City and the Gulf Coast, areas which are still struggling to get back on their feet after Hurricane Katrina.
