According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Lions are the “likely winners” for free agent RB Reggie Bush.
Florio adds that Bush would likely be given an opportunity to push Mikel Leshoure for the starting running back job.
The Cardinals are also believed to have serious interest.
We have him listed as the No. 37 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Ian Rapoport reports that the Cardinals and Lions have “significant” in free agent RB Reggie Bush.
The Lions interest in Bush has been well documented in recent weeks. They’re clearly one of the top suitors for Bush at this point in time.
However, the Cardinals could make things difficult as they already parted ways with RB Beanie Wells earlier in the day.
There hasn’t been a lot of talk regarding the Bengals, who many believed would also be in the running for Bush.
Mike Garafolo of USA Today reports that a source has informed him that the Arizona Cardinals are in fact interested in Bush.
Garafolo adds that another source mentioned that the Dolphins “haven’t closed the door on Bush’s return.”
The Lions have reportedly reached to Bush as well.
Mike Freeman tweets that Lions players are recruiting Bush to sign with Detroit.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk mentions that the Lions and Cardinals as two teams to watch in regards to free agent RB Reggie Bush.
Salguero’s source mentioned that the Dolphins are not one of those teams and added that Bush will not be back in Miami next season.
It’s really not that surprising to hear that he’ll likely be moving on in the next few weeks as the Dolphins have show limited interest at best in regards to a contract extension.
The Bengals and Lions have both been rumored to be potential landing spots for Bush, but it will be interesting to see if anyone else surfaces as a realistic destination.
