Lions cut RB Reggie Bush after two seasons with franchise
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) The Lions released veteran running back Reggie Bush after two seasons with the organization.
Bush dealt with injuries throughout the 2014 season that limited him on the football field. He finished with just 297 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 76 carries. Bush also had 253 receiving yards. That's a far cry from his 2013 season, when he posted 1,512 total yards and seven total touchdowns.
Bush had two years left on the deal he signed two years ago before being released.
The Lions will save $1.72 million in cap space for the 2015 season by cutting Bush.
Lions GM Martin Mayhew: Reggie Bush's future 'up in the air'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew would not reveal whether he wants to bring veteran running back Reggie Bush back next season, per the Detroit Free-Press. Mayhew went as far as to say that Bush's Detroit days are up in the air, despite being under contract next season.
"I would say that, but I would say that about Ndamukong (Suh), I would say that about all of our free agents," Mayhew said. "Their future is up in the air.
"Yeah, well, a lot of guys that are under contract are in the same situation," Mayhew said. "So it's really about the value you bring to the organization, that's constantly re-evaluated every off-season."
Bush has two years left on a four-year, $16 million contract that he signed before the 2013 season. After rushing for over 1,000 yards in 2013, Bush dealt with a number of injuries all through 2014. He appeared in 11 games for the Lions, totaling 297 yards on 76 carries with two touchdowns.
Lions' Reggie Bush moving past injury-filled season
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) After running for over 1,000 yards in 2013, Reggie Bush dealt with injuries all through this past season. He was held out of five games and played hurt in many others. His season yardage total ended with just 297 rushing yards and two touchdowns, with an additional 253 receiving yards.
Bush has two years left on a four-year, $16 million contract that he signed before the 2013 season. In an interview with the Lions' official team site, Bush said he expects to be back with the organization and is hoping to put his injury-plagued season behind him.
“It’s tough because I was injured,” Bush said. “I haven’t been injured like this in a while where I’ve missed a majority of the season. That’s tough not to be out there. Just coming back and getting re-injured coming back getting re-injured that was pretty tough to go through mentally.
“I really started to feel good [at the end of the year] and obviously it’s unfortunate it took this long. I really started to feel good and back to myself.”
Lions RB Reggie Bush could be cap casualty during offseason
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/5/15) Lions running back Reggie Bush still has two years left on his current contract with Detroit, but could potentially be among the cuts this offseason.
Bush has a cap number over $5 million for next season and the Lions would save $1.72 if he was cut. However, he believes he will be back with the team in 2015.
"I don't know, I haven't thought about that," Bush said, according to MLive.com. "I still have two years on my contract, so until somebody tells me otherwise, I'm planning on being back here."
Bush only played in 11 games for the Lions this year, totaling 297 yards on 76 carries with two touchdowns.
"I think I have a lot left to give this game," he said. "My body still feels pretty good, with the exception of the injuries I went through. I don't feel worn down, I don't feel beat up as a running back. Nine years in this league can make you feel that way. For me, I still feel pretty good, pretty young. I'm planning on playing for a while."
Reggie Bush scores TD in Wild Card loss vs. Cowboys
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/4/15) Lions running back Reggie Bush rushed for 37 yards on eight carries with one touchdown and added 10 yards on three receptions in his team's 24-20 Wild Card loss to the Cowboys Sunday.
The touchdown was a throwback run by Bush, who froze a defender on a stutter-step and beat the defense to the corner for an 18-yard score. He had just two touchdowns on 116 touches in the regular season before coming through with a first-quarter score Sunday.
|For three straight seasons Reggie Bush has been very helpful to Fantasy owners, totaling at least 1,200 total yards and seven scores per year. As a result he's wound up as a Top 15 running back each of those years. But assurances have been made by new Lions coaches that Bush will find himself splitting carries more evenly with Joique Bell, who himself totaled 1,197 yards in 2013 with eight touchdowns. But last year there was already a 56-44 split between the two backs (277 touches for Bush, 219 for Bell), so it's not like a shift this season will be drastic. Bush will lose out on goal-line work and could drop a few carries to Bell but should still be in line to round up enough yardage to be a good No. 2 running back. You might expect a slight dip from Bush, who will be 29 when the season starts, but he still looks fine as a pick between 25th and 35th overall in drafts.
