Following a disappointing 2014 campaign, Reggie Bush has been cut by the Detroit Lions. Last season, Bush rushed for only 297 yards on 76 carries and caught 40 passes for 253 yards for a mere two total touchdowns. Even though Bush still had two years remaining on the four-year, $16 million contract he signed prior to the 2013 season, the Lions took a $1.7 million cap hit in order to free up some more money in order to secure defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
Bush, who is a few days away from turning 30 years old, will now look for another job which will most likely involve being a complementary back. With the league becoming more and more accustomed to having backs split the workload, Reggie's speed, agility and ability to receive passes out of the backfield should definitely be an asset for another team. Which one is that exactly? We will need to wait and see.
