Mikel Leshoure and Joique Bell combined for a little more than 1,200 yards rushing on a Detroit Lions team that attempted more passes than any team in NFL history in 2012. Still, Detroit may look to add some firepower to the backfield in the offseason, and could be among the teams that would be interested in former Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush. Bush will be a free agent. His days with the Miami Dolphins, suggests CBSSports.com's Jason La Canfora, appear to be numbered, even though Bush had the top two rushing seasons of his career with the club. In 2012, Bush rushed for 986 yards while averaging 4.3 yards per carry, which followed up his only career 1,000-yard rushing season in 2011 (1,086). NFL.com's Chris Wesseling says to "keep an eye out" for the Lions as one of the teams to pursue Bush, a reliable receiver out of the backfield who could be a nice complement to Leshoure and Bell. Bush has at least 34 receptions in all seven of his NFL season, including 88 as a rookie in 2006 with New Orleans.
