The Saints had until Tuesday to match the offer sheet signed last week by safety Rafael Bush with the Falcons. The Saints opted not to prolong the suspense.

Per a league source, the Saints have indeed matched the offer. Bush hinted strongly that the offer had been matched by tweeting, “I’m still a saint yep.”

Last year, Bush appeared in 13 games with six starts. He’ll be deferring to starters Jairus Byrd and Kenny Vaccaro, barring injury.
