View Full Version : Lions sign Reggie Bush

03-13-2013, 12:23 PM
The first-ever Reggie Bush (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3600/reggie-bush) free-agency tour was a short one.
Per a league source, the Lions and Bush have agreed to terms on a new contract.
Bush reportedly was offered the starting job in Detroit, something that other interested teams may not have been willing (Cardinals) or able (Redskins) to do. For Bush, playing time is far more important than money, given that he has made a whole lot of it in seven NFL seasons, entering the league as the second overall pick in the draft and striking plenty of lucrative endorsement deals.
He proved during two years in Miami that he can be a durable, every-down back. But as running backs go heís getting long in the tooth. Itís unclear how many years he has left.
Given that the Lions possess one of the best passing attacks in the league, there should be plenty of running lanes for Bush, along with opportunities for swing passes in zones cleared out by Calvin Johnson (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4153/calvin-johnson).
Terms of the deal arenít yet known. Regardless, the Lions got a little better today.
