Lions' Chris Houston loves the addition of Reggie Bush to offense

ALLEN PARK —  Cornerback Chris Houston loves the addition of Reggie Bush to the Lions’ offense. 

That’s despite the nightmare of a game that Houston played against Bush when his USC Trojans were No. 1 in the nation. And Houston’s Arkansas Razorbacks were not. USC walloped Arkansas 70-17 on that day in September 2005.

“I’m a fan of the game and I’ve been a fan of Reggie Bush since college since he was burning us when I was at Arkansas. We played him when I was at the Falcons and he was with the New Orleans Saints,’’ Houston said during a Thursday press conference.

“So, I was always was overwhelmed with what he can do in the football field. I was sitting there thinking with him, Calvin Johnson and Matt (Stafford), I was thinking of something like the St. Louis Rams with Marshall Faulk and they had those good wide receivers,’’ said Houston referring to the Greatest Show on Turf.

“I’m just thinking about how special our offense can be with him,’’ Houston said.

 Bush signed a four-year, $16 million deal with the Lions on Wednesday.

 Houston re-signed with a five-year, $25 million contract.
