Lions agree to four-year deal with RB Reggie Bush

By Will Brinson cbssportsline.com

The Lions brought Reggie Bush to Detroit on Wednesday -- and he showed up in a white limosine apparently! -- and didn't let him leave before signing him to a four-year contract.
Bush, who emerged as a feature back during his last two years in Miami, was reportedly offered the starting gig in Detroit over Mikel LeShoure in order to entice him into coming to Motown.
He was obviously interested and enters into a pretty good situation.

It's a weird fit for Bush's personality, of course: he was in Los Angeles for college, got drafted to New Orleans and then moved to South Beach. Detroit isn't exactly, um, those places.
But the Lions desperately needed a more complete back. LeShoure only averaged 3.7 yards per carry in 2012 and Bush is one of the elite pass-catching backs in the NFL.
Bush and Detroit were one of the matches that made sense in terms of free agency, so it's not a stunner to see that he ended up with the Lions, who've had a busy day thus far on Wednesday, bringing back cornerback Chris Houston and signing defensive lineman Jason Jones.

Maybe not the same impact Barry Sanders had Spooky, but it certainly makes the running game and the short pass receiving core that much more dangerous!

I guess my USC Reggie Bush Jersey is now another item to wear on Sunday afternoons.
Sure hope he can play some Safety for them as well.

That seems like a pretty good fit to me....I think he'll do well but like Spooky said above not sure offense was where they needed to concentrate.....still early though and I think he will certainly have an impact...

Yea i think Bush could do very well there , he can catch the ball out of backfield and is good in open field and should find some room with Johnson always drawing so much attention. If he can stay healthy should put up some solid numbers there.

Operative words in sharpsquare post: stay healthy

Never, ever criticize someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes........for at that point they will be a mile away. And you'll have their shoes !
