Reggie Bush was recruited by Detroit Lions Players, and today, Bush repaid the effort by signing a four-year deal with the Detroit Lions.
Bush who reportedly was promised the starters job in Detroit, most likely signed for one particular record-setting reason. Calvin Johnson.
Bush according to Pro Football Talk said that “playing with Megatron is a running backs dream.”
“It’s a running back’s dream,” Bush said. “That’s the first thing we talked about, when we were watching film. To see those safeties deep, see those safeties rolling over double covering Calvin Johnson, it’s a running back’s dream. We have to be able to run the ball in that situation. That’s one of the reasons I wanted to come here, to be able to bring a balanced attack and help take some of the pressure off Calvin Johnson and Matthew Stafford and just complement them. I think it’s going to work out well.”
Bush said all the right things, and stated that he’s not concerned about how many carries he gets, because when he gets them, he’ll be effective.
“I’ve done three or four carries a game, I’ve done 20, 25 carries a game,” Bush said. “I’m comfortable when we win. That’s what I’m most comfortable with and that’s what I’m here for is to help this team win. I’m not so much worried about my personal stats. I’m at the point in my career now where winning is the most important to me.”
Bush definitely has a point. If both players can stay healthy, there will be a ton of room for both players to operate within.
