Report: Lions offering Reggie Bush starting job
Posted by Josh Alper on March 13, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

The Lions want Reggie Bush to sign a contract with them before he goes to visit any other teams.

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, part of the package that they’ll be offering Bush is the chance to be their starting running back ahead of Mikel Leshoure. That would seem to be significant for a player who proved in Miami that he could handle a more rigorous workload than he had in New Orleans, especially with some of the other teams perceived to be bidding for his services unable to offer the same kind of playing time.

The Redskins have Alfred Morris and the Bengals have BenJarvus Green-Ellis, players who would at least split time with Bush and might even push him into more of a passing down role. Bruce Arians has talked up Ryan Williams in Arizona, although it’s less clear how things would shake out since we’ve seen so little of Williams during his first two professional seasons.

The Cardinals have quarterback issues that none of the other three teams have, however, and that would likely be on Bush’s mind before choosing his next destination.

Perhaps if Bush does sign, we'll get to see what Schwartz & Co wanted w/Best & LeShoure...


Bush doesn't deserve a starting role. Again, this is a stupid move that's going to cost us too much money and produce too little. It's more of the same - flash in the pan garbage.

IMO if Linehan needs a pass catching RB to run his offense, he has to go. We can't have our entire offense relying on one guy, and AGAIN it will be relying on an injury prone guy... No thanks...

We never seem to learn...


you yourself said we a re only a few players away from having a GREAT offense. if we get one of of the Tackles in the draft and either a RT or a guard, Bush can be an add that takes us over that hump. Personally i'd like to use that money on D, but I see where they are going with this kind of move.

think N.O. the year they picked up Breese...



No, no and no...

I never said we need an RB to be a great offense. We are an LT, OG, RT (admittedly Reiff can handle at least one of those positions) and #2 WR away from being a great offense. Adding a "starting" RB is more of a luxury and, IMO isn't money well spent.

I think that's where everyone expected to see him. He's a good CB that can handle the #1 spot but would make a great #2.

as far as how'd you'd build the team anyhow...

Fixing the line we agree on, getting a skill position guy who can take the heat from Calvin CAN come in the form of a RB. it doesn't HAVE to be a #2 WR. Like him or no, Reggie has to be accounted for on the field. thats one more pair eyes off of Calvin.

As long as they don't overspend on the signing bonus I think I can be okay with Bush in a Lion's uni. The best thing a player like Bush is going to do for the team is open up the middle if the field and not force the receivers and Stafford to have to work through so much garbage. If he lines up out wide or runs a wheel route he is going to garnish the attention of at least a LB or S if not both. That alone takes at least one if not two guys out of the box not to mention the other S that has to help on Calvin.

Looks like they have their 3rd DT with Jason Jones. I hope he didn't cost too much so they can offset some of that Suh money.

Jason Jones leaves Seahawks for Detroit Lions

Defensive tackle Jason Jones will sign with the Detroit Lions, according to his agent Mike McCartney.

Jones signed with Seattle as a free agent last year, a former second-round pick who came to the Seahawks on a one-year deal. He was added to be a pass-rushing defensive tackle on third downs and also provide depth. He had three sacks in 12 games, and was placed on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury that required surgery.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll already stated the team needed to add multiple pass-rushers this offseason, and Jones’ departure will only underscore that. Last year, Bruce Irvin and Chris Clemons combined to account for more than half the team’s total of 36 sacks. No other player on the team had more than three sacks.


@MikeMcCartney7 tweeted - Excited for Jason Jones to be in Honolulu Blue after agreeing to terms with the @DetroitLionsNFL

I was coming here to say that ESPN is reporting the same thing.

Man, if we can sign Jake Long we will have one of the top two picks from five straight drafts (Bush #2 in 06', CJ #2 in 07', Long #1 in 08', Staff #1 in 09', Suh #2 in 10')

The Detroit Lions were determined not to let Reggie Bush get out of town, in fear of losing their man to the Arizona Cardinals or Cincinnati Bengals.

Dangling the opportunity to be a full-time player, starting over holdovers Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell, the Lions landed another weapon for Matthew Stafford on Wednesday. Bush signed a four-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.
