Signing a four-year contract with Detroit in March worth roughly $20 million, Schwartz also plans to frequently target the 28-year-old Bush as a receiver and use the former Trojan as a full-time, three-down back.
Splitting carries with youngster Lamar Miller in Miami, the 6-foot, 203 pound Bush rushed for 986 yards and six touchdowns as a Dolphin in 2012.
