After watching game films of the Detroit Lions, free agent running back Reggie Bush told a YouWager news source, ”It’s a running back’s dream. We have to be able to run the ball in that situation. One of the reasons I wanted to come here is to be able to bring a balanced attack.”
As their most important free agent this far, the Detroit Lions proudly promoted the signing of Bush. YouWager’s NFL football betting fans are hoping that Bush will help lift the dynamic offense that also contains Calvin Johnson quarterback Matthew Stafford. Sportsbook bettors think Bush will surely add some sizzle and speed to the Detroit backfield. The club already has Mikel Leshoure, a fast
233-pound running back. For the Miami Dolphins, Bush rushed for 986 yards in the 2012 NFL football wagering season. This followed his total 1,086 yards in 2011.
The Detroit Lions did not reveal any sensitive terms involved in the contract. The club also made deals with free agents Jason Jones (defensive end) and Chris Houston (cornerback). Jones recently played for the Seattle Seahawks, and Houston has been with Detroit for the last three NFL football betting seasons.
In spite of Johnson’s productive season as a wide receiver, sadly, Detroit was only 4-12 in 2012. Detroit’s running game was never very solid, YouWager’s dedicated football bettors say. Detroit frequently only managed 4 runs of more than 20 yards, and this poor record tied the team for the least in the NFL.
Jim Schwartz, head coach of the Lions, told YouWager’s source, ”The thing that was important to us was not just the talent of Reggie Bush, but also the way those talents complemented the other players we have on offense. That was really the basis of our interest in Reggie.”
Many of YouWager’s hardcore NFL bettors feel Detroit has lacked the ability to make the big plays on the ground is because Jahvid Best, a first-round hot pick, never played. Best’s career is a big question mark at this point, due to concussion issues.
Detroit seems to be building an attack on Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, and Reggie Bush hopes to be a big part of that. Bush told YouWager’s source, ”Having a quarterback like Matthew makes all the difference. This offense doesn’t work without him.”
Detroit needs more than just a running back at this stage, of course. The Lions will also be expected to improve their secondary in free agency, too. YouWager’s football bettors saw the Detroit Lions begin the 2012 NFL football wagering season with some drama, and a 4-4 record at the start, but this campaign ultimately became a dismal 4-12 season.
