Week in Review: Lions kick off organized team activities in Allen Park

Posted May 25, 2013

Perhaps the most newsworthy item to come out of this week's OTAs wasn't news at all ... it was seeing RB Reggie Bush sporting a Detroit Lions' uniform for the first time

This week marked the first this offseason that Detroit Lions veterans suited up and practiced team drills.

Perhaps the most exciting piece of news to come out of that event wasn't news at all. It was the first photo of RB Reggie Bush in a Detroit Lions uniform.

The photo -- sent out Tuesday morning after the first organized team activity of the 2013 offseason was underway -- received 523 retweets and 230 replies on Twitter and 7,215 likes and 1,273 shares on Facebook.

Following the second OTA, Bush spoke with the local media wearing a shirt that said, "Train, Eat, Sleep, Repeat. Made in Detroit" wrapped around a Detroit Lions logo.

"I came here to work," he said when asked if there was enough excitement in the Detroit area after spending time at USC, New Orleans and Miami.

The eighth-year veteran is certainly showing his passion for being part of a winning football team in 2013.

With OTAs kicking off, the veterans and rookies came together for practice for the first time this offseason.

WR Calvin Johnson continued work he began with rookie WR Corey Fuller, telling Tim Twentyman that he may check out Fuller's mini-camp tape to get a better idea of his capabilities.

"(It's) to just see what he might need work on and how we can help him out," said Johnson.
