Lions Offering Reggie Bush Starting Job

The Lions want Reggie Bush to sign a contract with them before he goes to visit any other teams.

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, part of the package that they’ll be offering Bush is the chance to be their starting running back ahead of Mikel Leshoure. That would seem to be significant for a player who proved in Miami that he could handle a more rigorous workload than he had in New Orleans, especially with some of the other teams perceived to be bidding for his services unable to offer the same kind of playing time.
