Reggie Bush leaves South Beach for Motor City


Running back Reggie Bush rejuvenated his career during his time with the Miami Dolphins, but he'll have to finish it somewhere else.

Though the veteran tailback desired a return to the Dolphins, Miami didn't want to commit the years or money to an aging tailback with Lamar Miller, a similar back, waiting in the wings.

Detroit offers the opportunity for Bush to play in a spread offense, and use his world-class agility in space. During his time in Miami, Bush proved he has the ability to run between the tackles, a skill that he never had the chance to use while in New Orleans early in his career.

Bush rushed for 2,074 yards and 12 touchdowns in his two seasons in Miami.
