NFL: Detroit Lions sign Reggie Bush

By Layne Weiss     Mar 13, 2013 in Sports
Detroit - The Detroit Lions have signed free agent running back Reggie Bush to a four-year deal. Bush said signing with the Lions just "made sense."
"I think the number one thing that stuck out was just the way they wanted to use me and it just made sense. It felt right," he told Detroitlions.com after signing a four-year deal with the team Wednesday.
"Everything we talked about, we were on the same page and the way we thought about football-and when I say 'we,' I'm talking about Coach Schwartz and Coach Linehan-and it all just made sense."
The 29-year-old player called the Lions a "running back's dream."
Reggie Bush's contract is reportedly worth $16, ESPN reports.
According to CBS Detroit, he is being brought in as a replacement for Jahvid Best who hasn't played since getting a concussion on October 17, 2011 in a game against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Lions are hopeful Bush can help them rebound from an extremely disappointing 4-12 season, Detroitlions.com reports. This, however, is not the only move they have made to improve the team.
In addition to signing Reggie Bush, on Wednesday, the Lions also agreed to deals with Houston Texans safety Glover Quin, cornerback Chris Houston and Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Jason Jones, ESPN reports.
