Could Reggie Bush be a Detroit Lion next season? Reports from the motor city claim the team has “real” interest in signing the star RB.
Reggie Bush is not likely to re-sign with the Miami Dolphins, who don’t see him as a franchise player. At 27-years-old Bush should still have plenty of gas left in his tank. Miami would bring him back at a bargain price, but does not have the cap space sign him at a starter’s salary.
Detroit make sense. The Lions future was supposed to be Jahvid Best. Best’s career is now likely over after two concussion shortened seasons.
Reggie Bush needs a team and the Lions need a RB. The NFL Network believes the Lions should be able to sign Bush for around five million dollars.
The Detroit Free Press claims Detroit has “real” interest in signing Reggie Bush. It is also widely believed around the league that Bush will be a priority signing for Detroit. Since drafting Matthew Stafford in 2009, Detroit has tried to surround him with the talent to match his arm. Bush could be the missing piece of the puzzle.
Reggie Bush’s career began slowly in the NFL. After being drafted in the first round by the New Orleans Saints, he was never allowed to show he was an every down back. Used mostly in passing situations, Bush became unhappy.
Bush then signed with the Dolphins, where he proved that he was durable and strong enough to be an every down back the last two years. If the current reports are true, the Lions are sold on Bush’s production in Miami.
Do you think Reggie Bush should go to the Lions? Is Detroit his best landing spot?
