(Until training camp starts at the end of July, Lions Lowdown will post blogs five times a week using the list format.)
Reggie Bush was one of the biggest free agent signings, along with safety Glover Quin and defensive end Jason Jones.
Here are five reasons Bush will be a good addition for the Lions:
1. His experience will be a factor. He’s 28 and had his best two statistical seasons the last two years with the Miami Dolphins.
2. He can fill the role left open by Jahvid Best by catching the ball out of the backfield. He can also line up in the slot effectively.
3. Opposing defenses will have to find a balance between defending Calvin Johnson and Bush, which should create space for each of them.
4. Bush seems motivated. After two seasons with the Dolphins, he’s primed to help lead the Lions back to the playoffs.
