According to Larry Holder of theNew Orleans Times-Picayune, the Falcons have given an offer sheet to Saints RFA safety Rafael Bush. The offer sheet that restricted free-agent safety Rafael Bush signed with the Atlanta Falcons is worth $4.5 million over two years, a league source told The Advocate . Bush started six games for the Saints last year. Running back Pierre Thomas escapes safety Rafael Bush and heads for the end zone during practice at Saints headquarters in Metairie on Wednesday, July 31, 2013. The source also said Bush is hoping the New Orleans Saints won’t match the deal because Atlanta is offering a chance at a starting job. The Atlanta Falcons are hoping to fill one of their biggest needs and to dent their longtime rivals, the New Orleans Saints , in the process. They agreed to deals with veteran cornerback Champ Bailey and former Canadian Football League safety Marcus Ball to add depth to their secondary.
