Detroit Lions — Reggie Bush, a consummate pro, will be missed

Detroit Lions — Reggie Bush, a consummate pro, will be missed

When Reggie Bush first arrived in Detroit two years ago when he signed with the Lions as a free agent, he was a good fit right away. The veteran running back was not shy and took on an immediate leadership role. It’s just the way he was. He was always a professional. Bush was released by the Lions on Wednesday with two years remaining on his contract. Since he played at USC and once dated Kim Kardashian, Bush could have been all Hollywood. He was not. He seemed to fit right in to Detroit with a strong work ethic. He even has a passion for classic cars. He took his...

Detroit Lions cut RB Reggie Bush, clear $1.7 million in cap space

Bush joined the Lions in 2013 after signing a four-year, $16 million contract. He played two of those seasons and finished with 1,303 yards on the ground, plus another 759 through the air. He scored nine touchdowns -- seven of which came in 2013.

Considering Reggie Bush for Patriots

Another reminder that free agency is an ever-evolving picture came on Wednesday when veteran running back Reggie Bush was released by the Lions.  Two questions then came to mind: Would the Patriots be interested? And, if so, how might this affect negotiations with soon-to-be-free-agent Shane Vereen? A few thoughts: Bush, who turns 30 on March 2, would project to the same type of role in the Patriots' offense as Vereen. He is still a top pass-catching back when healthy and that is something the Patriots value highly.

Lions Release Reggie Bush, Should Patriots Be Interested?

Should the Patriots be interested in the dynamic running back? The Lions have cut running back Reggie Bush from their roster after two seasons with the team. Immediate question that follows: should the Patriots be interested? The Patriots are open for a running back with soft hands as Shane Vereen is a free agent who is looking for $5 million per season- well above the New England price range. Bush is coming off an injury-plagued season and, at 30 years old next season, doesn't have the Fountain of Youth in his pocket, which means his price tag might be slightly more reasonable. Bush is...

Reggie Bush released by Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have released Reggie Bush. I don't know that the 49ers will kick the tires, but as a potential change-of-pace backup (particularly if Frank Gore walks), maybe he is worth a look. NFL free agency is two weeks away, and the blood-letting has begun in earnest this week! The Detroit Lions joined other teams in clearing roster and cap space, as they released running back Reggie Bush, according to multiple national reports. The Lions clear $1.7 million in cap space with the release. If they had waited until the new league year, and designated him a post-June 1 cut, they would...

Lions release Reggie Bush

The Detroit Lions have decided to release running back Reggie Bush. Adam Schefter is reporting that the Detroit Lions have released running back Reggie Bush. The move comes as no surprise considering Lions general manager Martin Mayhew admitted last week that Bush's status going forward was up in the air. Clearly the Lions weren't sold on bringing Bush back for another season, and now he's a free agent. There are really two big reasons behind the Lions' decision to cut Bush. For starters, the move saves them slightly more than $1.7 million in cap space for 2015. They could actually increase...

Reggie Bush cut by Lions

Former Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush was cut by the Detroit Lions. The Detroit Lions have released running back Reggie Bush according to a report from Adam Schefter. The Lions hinted last week that Bush's status with the team was not set for the 2015 season, and now he is a free agent. According to SB Nation's Pride of Detroit, the former Miami Dolphins starting running back is no longer a member of the Lions for "two big reasons." The move saves them slightly more than $1.7 million in cap space for 2015. They could actually increase that savings to $3.5 million by designating...

Reggie Bush cut by Lions, viable option for Raiders?

One of the more exciting players in the NFL over the past few years has been Reggie Bush. He is now a free agent after being cut by the Detroit Lions. Could he be a good addition to the Raiders? Let's see. Since spending the first five seasons of his career in New Orleans as the number two overall pick, he has had a two-year stop in Miami, and a two-year stop in Detroit. Now 30-years old -- the widely believed age running backs begin to go downhill quickly -- he is a free agent once again. Bush has had basically three good seasons in the NFL from 2011-13. He was at his most durable in those...

Lions cut Reggie Bush; Packers cut A.J.Hawk and more Wednesday NFL transactions

A slew of NFL moves were made Wednesday, including Lions RB Reggie Bush and Packers LB A.J. Hawk being cut. The Detroit Lions are finished with the Reggie Bush experiment. The team announced they had released the veteran running back on Wednesday, marking the third different NFL team to move on from the former No. 2 overall pick since 2010. After being drafted by the Saints in 2006, Bush had five up-and-down years in New Orleans, followed by two solid seasons in Miami. Bush still has two years remaining on a four-year, $16 million deal he signed before the 2013 season. Had he stayed with...

2015 NFL Free Agency: Lions cut Reggie Bush

The Detroit Lions have parted ways with the dynamic running back. Could he be in play for the Steelers? The Lions released Reggie Bush on Wednesday according to multiple sources.  The former No. 2 overall pick had a rough 2014 in Detroit, battling injuries as he had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career. Bush came into the league as a highly-touted, dynamic rusher from USC and was expected to become one of the league's top rushers.  While Bush hasn't quite lived up to his lofty pre-draft standards, the former Heisman winner has been far from a bust, compiling nearly 9,000...

What Reggie Bush's release means for the Lions

What exactly does Reggie Bush's release mean for the Detroit Lions? Let's take a look at this move from a few different perspectives. The Detroit Lions officially released running back Reggie Bush on Wednesday. Here's a look at what this move means for the team going forward: Immediate cap savings The Lions' move to release Bush freed up $1.72 million in cap space. The Lions could have created $3.5 million in cap room by making Bush a June 1 cut, but they would have had to wait until that date to actually make use of that extra space. Considering they may need every penny available to...

Saints News, 2/26/15: Reggie Bush Back On The Market

From Mike Triplett: Former New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush was released in a cost-cutting move by the Detroit Lions on Wednesday. Immediately, my Twitter feed filled up with questions about whether Bush might fit back in New Orleans since the Saints were missing that runner/receiver hybrid after trading Darren Sproles last year. It’s not entirely out of the question -- especially if the Saints lose top running back Mark Ingram in free agency and want to add a veteran to their committee approach. But I don’t know if Bush would provide a missing element to New Orleans’...

Reggie Bush, DeAngelo Williams released, should the Arizona Cardinals consider them?

The Cards are looking to upgrade at running back. One of the offseason priorities for the Arizona Cardinals is to address the running back position. The team would like to add a bigger back to complement Andre Ellington. All reports seem to believe the team will address the position both in free agency and in the draft. There are a couple of veteran players to hit the market early. The Carolina Panthers have reportedly released DeAngelo Williams and the Detroit Lions have cut ties with Reggie Bush. Bush is 6-0, 205 pounds. Williams is shorter at 5-9, but is a stocky 215. Bush was a...

NFL Cuts 2015: Ricky Jean-Francois, Reggie Bush, Ted Ginn, Jacoby Jones on the market

It's that time of the year where teams start prepping their salary cap for 2015 and the result has been a good deal of veteran releases over the past couple of days. The Colts released DT/DE Ricky Jean-Francois, the Lions dropped RB Reggie Bush, the Ravens released KR Jacoby Jones, and the Cardinals cut KR Ted Ginn. The Packers released LB A.J. Hawk and LB Brad Jones, the Giants released RB Peyton Hillis and DE Mathias Kiwanuka, and the list of cuts grows today as the Eagles released guard Todd Herremans and the Jags released CB Will Blackmon. So, the natural question that jumped into every...

Reggie Bush, A.J. Hawk and the 2006 NFL Draft

The release of Reggie Bush and A.J. Hawk got me thinking a bout the 2006 NFL Draft. A lot of craziness went down leading up to it. The NFL has seen numerous roster cuts over the last week, as teams clear cap space and prepare for the start of 2015 free agency. There have been quite a few notable names kicked to the curb. Two of the biggest would have to be running back Reggie Bush and linebacker A.J. Hawk. The Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, respectively, cut them on Wednesday. Both have a decent shot of landing with a new team, but it is still kind of crazy to see names like that end...

New York Giants Potential Free-Agent Target: Running Back Reggie Bush

The Giants have no one like him. Does running back Reggie Bush have enough gas left in his tank to help the New York Giants make a push to the playoffs in 2015, a place they haven't been since winning the 2011 Super Bowl? Bush, released by the Detroit Lions earlier this week, turns 30 in just a few days. In running back years, 30, of course, is considered ancient. Bush is coming off the least productive season of his career -- discounting 2010, when he played in only eight games. Bush totaled only 550 yards from scrimmage, roughly one-third of the 1,512 yards he totaled for Detroit in...
