Nate Burleson campaigned for Reggie Bush to sign with the Detroit Lions. It looks like all that public pleading has worked.
“I’m going to just say this, ‘Reggie Bush, you already took your talents to South Beach, come on to Detroit,’” Burleson said about a month ago. “I know it’s not as sunny, and it might not be the same type of glitz and glamor, but you can do wonders for us.”
ESPN’s NFL Insider and professional tweeter Adam Schefter went on SportsCenter and said that the Detroit Lions expect to sign 3 players today: Reggie Bush, Jason Jones and Glover Quin.
Jason Jones is a defensive end who played in Seattle, but interestingly enough was born in Detroit. He also played at Eastern Michigan so this is a homecoming of sorts.
Glover Quin is a safety from the Houston Texans and a one time AFC defensive player of the week.
Reggie Bush and Glover Quin are supposedly at the facilities today.
Rotoworld reported the following:
“Citing people around the league, Schefter reported that the Lions hope to make each of these moves “in one fell swoop,” creating a free-agent splash. Detroit already locked up CB Chris Houston on Wednesday morning. Jones, Bush, and Quin are all at Lions headquarters visiting club officials and taking physicals.”
DT Jason Jones agreed to a deal with the Lions, according to his agent, Mike McCartney.
