Reggie Bush, Lions agree to 4-year deal

Earlier today, the Detroit Lions and running back Reggie Bush agreed to a four-year deal.

"I think the No. 1 thing that stuck out was the way they wanted to use me and it just made sense. It felt right," Bush told

For the first time in his career, Bush rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2011 as a featured back with the Dolphins. Then last year, he led the NFL in rushing ... oh wait, that didn't actually happen.

What did Reggie Bush and I have in common last year? Neither one of us led the NFL in rushing.

Alright, kidding aside, Bush has been productive and healthy in his two-year stint with the Dolphins.

Bush rushed for a total of 2,172 yards in the past two seasons. Perhaps as importantly, Bush played a total of 31 games in the past two seasons after missing a total of 20 games in the previous four seasons.

With the Lions, Bush gives their offense the dynamic threat that they had hoped Jahvid Best would give them. Of course, injuries have slowed Best when he was on the field and his concussion history will keep him off it.

Over the past three seasons, Bush has failed to reach 300 receiving yards in any season. In addition, he has had less than 50 reception in each of the past four seasons.

While he may not approach the 88 receptions for 742 yards that he had as a rookie with the Saints, I expect Bush to have, at a minimum, five-year highs in receptions and receiving yards this upcoming season.
