On September 1, 2012, Bush was signed by the New Orleans Saints. Bush is noted for wearing #25 with the team, which was notably worn by Reggie Bush during the latter's tenure with the team.

Bush was a restricted free agent after the 2013 season, and he signed an offer sheet with the Falcons that would have returned him to Atlanta for reported compensation of about $4.5 million for two years. However, on April 7, 2014, the Saints exercised their right to match the Falcons' offer and bring Bush back to New Orleans. During the 2015 season, he played in the Saints' season opener at Arizona before being placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.

Detroit Lions

On March 12, 2016, the Detroit Lions signed Bush to a one-year contract. In Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams, Bush made his first interception as a Lion. The Rams were trailing by 3 in the two minute warning of the 4th quarter, and Bush intercepted Case Keenum, which sealed the victory for the Lions. Bush made his first career touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11. He picked up a tipped ball, and returned it for 39 yards and a touchdown.
