Found March 12, 2013 on Fox Sports Detroit:
The Detroit Lions apparently are going to have to wait at least another day to add that playmaking running back that theyve been coveting. The NFL free-agent season opened Tuesday at 4 p.m. with much anticipation and speculation that the Lions could quickly sign Reggie Bush, who played the last two seasons in Miami. No such deal was immediately announced. Instead, Bush is expected to make a visit to the Lions before a final decision is made, according to ESPNs Adam Schefter.

Bush, 28, could provide the big-play potential that has been lacking at running back for the Lions ever since Jahvid Best suffered a brain injury in the sixth game of the 2011 season. The Lions were 5-0 going into that game. Since then theyre 9-19, including one playoff loss. Bush would split the duties with Mikel Leshoure.
