Pro Football Talk reports that the Lions have agreed to terms with free agent RB Reggie Bush.
Anwar Richardson provides a contract breakdown of Bush’s new deal.
- 2013 – $1 million
- 2014 – $3.5 million
- 2015 – $3.25 million
- 2016 – $3.75 million
- Signing Bonus – $4 million
“The thing that stuck out to me was the way they wanted to use me,” said Bush, per Tim Twentyman.
The Lions were the clear favorites to land Bush and were reportedly prepared to get this contract completed this afternoon in order to prevent him from meeting with the Cardinals and Bengals. Previous reports indicated that the Lions are willing to hand Bush the starting running back job next season.
He is the first running back to be signed in free agency.
We have him listed as the No. 37 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
