[+] Enlarge@detroitlionsnflReggie Bush signed with the Detroit Lions Wednesday, hoping to add another dimension to an offense led by Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.
Bush's contract is reportedly worth $16 million.
The Lions also agreed to deals with former Houston Texans safety Glover Quin, cornerback Chris Houston and former Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Jason Jones on Wednesday. The Lions announced Quin inked a five-year deal.
The 29-year-old Bush proved that he can be an every-down tailback in Miami, rushing for 2,072 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons with the Dolphins.
He called the Lions' offense "a running back's dream."
"The first thing we talked about, we're watching film, seeing those safeties deep ... it's a running back's dream. We have to be able to run the ball in that situation. That's part of the reason I wanted to come here and be part of a balanced attack and take the pressure off Calvin Johnsonand Matthew Stafford."
Lions great Barry Sanders welcomed him to the Lions on Wednesday afternoon, in a tweet.
"Proud to be a @DetroitLionsNFL and excited to welcome @ReggieBush to the family," he wrote.
In 2012, Bush played in every game for the first time since 2006 and fell just shy of his second consecutive 1,000-yard rushing season, finishing with 986.
