OK, now Nate Burleson is jumping on the bandwagon to get Reggie Bush to Detroit.
Burleson made his plea on the NFL Network on Monday morning.
“I’m going to just say this, ‘Reggie Bush, you already took your talents to South Beach, come on to Detroit,’’’ Burleson said. “He still has that legend behind him. ... And if I can get Reggie Bush in a Detroit Lions uniform, ooh-wee, watch out.’’
The veteran running back, who has spent last two seasons with Miami, will be a free agent. The Dolphins have made it clear they don’t want him back.
Bush will turn 28 in March and could provide a much-needed spark in the Lions’ run game.
But that’s not Burleson’s concern.
Last week Sports Illustrated’s Peter King and the NFL Network analyst Willie McGinest came out to say they think Bush would be a good fit in Detroit.
