This entire offseason, new Detroit Lions running back
The Lions are on the lookout for a new punt returner after parting ways with Stefan Logan after last season. Could Bush fill that role?
He certainly has experience doing it with a career average of 7.9 yards per punt return and four punt return touchdowns.
Lions special teams coordinator John Bonamego knows full well what Bush can provide in the return game. Bonamego held the same title with the Saints in 2006 and 2007 -- Bush's first two seasons in the league. Bonamego says even if Bush isn't the full-time punt returner for the Lions this season, he could do it in a situational basis.
"Reggie will have a role," Bonamego told detroitlions.com. "Reggie (can return punts) and is willing to do it. That's more situational -- we need one, let's put him back there and let's see if he can make something happen.
"I had him his first two years in the league in New Orleans and that was the way he was utilized in that role. So, he's back there catching them in practice."
There are going to be times when the Lions need a spark or a big return and will look to Bush, who's also expected to have a big role on offense this season, to provide them with one.
