Reggie Bush New Orleans, Miami, and Now Detroit

Buffalo Bills v Miami DolphinsReggie Bush: New Orleans, Miami, and Now Detroit

Reggie Bush appeared pleased with his 4 year contract with the Detroit Lions at the news conference.  He expressed excitement about new teammates Matthew Stafford, and Calvin Johnson.

“It’s a running back’s dream,” Bush said about facing six- and seven-man fronts. “That’s the first thing we talked about. When we were watching film and you see those safeties deep and safeties rolling over, double-coveraging Calvin Johnson. It’s a running back’s dream.

“We have to be able to run the ball in that situation. That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to come here, to be able to bring a balanced attack and help take some of the pressure off Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford and just complement them.”

Ever since the Lions acquired Stafford, the Lions have been one of the best passing teams in the NFL.  Stafford has averaged 5,000 passing yards and Megatron has been setting records, but the run game has been nonexistent.

“It just made sense. If felt right from the beginning,” Bush said. “They really didn’t have to sell me too much. They could have just pulled up one clip and I was already sold.

“Just the possibilities of being out there on the football field with Calvin and Stafford and all the other guys out there and just scoring lots of points all the time.”

Bush says that at this point in his career personal stats are unimportant.  He simply wants to win.

Because legendary Bobby Layne wore number 22, and was retired by Detroit, He will have to choose a new number.
