Saints match Falcons' offer to S Bush

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The New Orleans Saints have retained restricted free agent safety Rafael Bush by matching an offer from the Atlanta Falcons.

Bush had signed the offer last week, giving the Saints until Tuesday to either match that deal or let Bush go. If the Saints had lost Bush, they would not have received any compensation because they tendered him a minimum offer of $1.4 million for next season.

Bush's new deal is reportedly worth up to $4.5 million over two seasons.
