Running back Reggie Bush hasn’t had a problem learning the Lions playbook this offseason.
“It’s pretty similar,” Bush said, via MLive.com. “This playbook, from a terminology standpoint, is a little easier to learn, and probably just because I’ve been in the league going on eight years now. I know pretty much everything. It’s just different terminology. It’s pretty easy for me to pick up now.”
Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan can’t wait to utilize Bush’s versatility.
“I think you’re going to use the strengths of the players out there,” Linehan said. “Reggie definitely has some versatility. I think, if anything, it gives us some more versatility we can use as it relates to our backfield. Whether we’re doing what we do as a base, or we can do some things creative wise to break the traditional looks that we have and utilize our running back both as a runner and a pass receiver.
“That’s what Reggie has done his whole career, and hopefully we can continue to do that now
