New Orleans Saints defensive back Rafael Bush reveals that he will remain at the club as they have matched the Atlanta Falcons offer sheet.

Defensive back Rafael Bush has hinted that he will remain with the New Orleans Saints for the 2014 season.

The 26-year-old was a restricted free agent which allowed the Atlanta Falcons to sign him to an offer sheet in a deal that would send a Draft pick to the Saints.

However, the Saints have matched the offer to keep him with Sean Payton's side, according to the player.

Bush wrote on Twitter: "I'm still a Saint yep."

The safety recorded 42 tackles and five pass defends in 13 games for the Saints last season.
