Signing a four-year contract with Detroit in March worth roughly $20 million, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz plans to use Bush as a punt returner, receiver and full-time, three-down back.
Compiling 2,730 yards and 15 scores as a receiver since debuting in 2006, Bush will more than compensate for last season’s critical loss of Jahvid Best and give Detroit an extremely diverse backfield presence.
Possibly of greater importance, Bush can spread the field for Johnson and provide Stafford with an invaluable security blanket when pressured in the pocket.
With more potent weapons for defenses to focus on, the wannabe Heisman Trophy winner should serve as something of a complementary player and thrive as a Lion dashing in “The D.”
If able to remain healthy, expect Reggie Bush to electrify Motown this autumn.by
