Reggie Bush in free agency

According to the Detroit News the Saints could ask Reggie Bush to restructure his contract or be released if he refuses.

There are a number of teams that could be interested in Bush.

The Seahawks need a running back and who knows Bush better than his former college coach, Pete Carroll, who was hired last month from Southern California.

Bush could provide the Lions with a home-run threat. 

It is believed that the 49ers would be interested in Bush as a steady backup to Frank Gore.

Jets accused of tampering with Crabtree

The Jets' pursuit of a top-notch wide receiver could land them in trouble with the NFL, according to the New York Daily News.

The 49ers, who are in a contract dispute with rookie receiver Michael Crabtree, have filed tampering charges against the Jets.

The Jets, through a team spokesman, denied the allegations.

Crabtree, the 10th overall pick in the draft, is threatening to sit out the season and reenter the draft in 2010. The 49ers may believe the Jets contacted Crabtree's agent, Eugene Parker, to let him know they'd be interested in trading for his rights, or in drafting him in 2010 with a better salary than the 49ers are offering.

Crabtree offer is reduced

According to the San Jose Mercury News, the 49ers are poised to drop their offer to Michael Crabtree, who was the No. 10 overall pick out of Texas Tech.

The 49ers' offer has been reported at five years and $20 million, with $16 million guaranteed.

According to a Yahoo! report, the 49ers are willing to give Crabtree incentives that would take them to within a dollar less of the package given to No. 9 pick B.J. Raji. (Raji got a reported five-year deal for $28.5 million with almost $18 million guaranteed.)

Did Mangini leak reports about Crabtree?

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Browns coach Eric Mangini refuted Texas Tech coach Mike Leach's claims that Mangini leaked reports of receiver Michael Crabtree acting like a diva during his meeting with the Browns.

Leach went off on Mangini after Crabtree slipped to the 49ers at No. 10 overall.

"Michael Crabtree has been more successful as a receiver than that guy has as a coach at this point," Leach told the Sacramento Bee.

49ers meeting with Warner

According to the San Jose Mercury News, Kurt Warner scheduled a visit to Santa Clara to meet with the 49ers since negotiations with the Arizona Cardinals hit a standstill.

The Cardinals don't believe any other team will be willing to top the two-year, $20 million offer they have on the table. But Warner's agent, Mark Bartelstein, told the Sacramento Bee that the 49ers' visit is not a mere negotiating ploy.

Warner, 37, is coming off a season in which he threw for 4,583 yards and 30 touchdowns and led upstart Arizona to the Super Bowl.
