Over the past few months, Reggie Bush’s future in the NFL has been uncertain to say the least. There’s no question Bush will land with another team before next season once the Miami Dolphins officially part ways, but speculation continues to run rampant in terms of his next team with the Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions potentially the most interested according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today as of March 9:
The Arizona Cardinals are looking for more firepower on offense, and that could lead them to Reggie Bush.
The team has contacted Bush's agent to show interest in the free-agent-to-be running back, according to a person with knowledge of the communication between the sides.
Along with the Cardinals, the Detroit Lions are also one of the most interested teams in Bush’s services. Even though Bush has been considered somewhat of a disappointment after the high expectations as a rookie coming out of USC, the veteran running back has been able to bounce back as of late with two solid seasons under his belt with the Dolphins.
In 2012, Bush racked up over 1,200 yards from scrimmage and scored eight touchdowns for Miami. Although not considered an elite running back in the NFL, Bush will almost certainly sign a lucrative deal once officially a free agent on March 12.
The Lions and Cardinals may ultimately be the two teams to battle it out for Bush’s services. Both destinations will be a good fit for Bush. Detroit might end up being the best fit with the addition of the back potentially being the missing piece to the puzzle for a promising young team led by Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.
