Nate Burleson tries to convince Reggie Bush to sign with the Lions

The Detroit Lions are in need of help at the running back position, and the name Reggie Bush seems to keep coming up in association with their backfield. Although he once again showed that he is susceptible to injury last season, Bush played in all 16 regular season game with the Miami Dolphins and nearly rushed for 1,000 yards. He also hauled in 35 receptions out of the backfield.

While I highly doubt Bush is capable of remaining healthy and being effective as an every-down back, he could be a nice fit in an offense that throws the ball a lot like Detroit’s. That’s why Lions receiver Nate Burleson is trying to recruit him.

“I’m going to just say this, ‘Reggie Bush, you already took your talents to South Beach, come on to Detroit,'” Burleson told NFL Network’s NFL AM on Monday morning, via Around the League. “He still has that legend behind him. … And if I can get Reggie Bush in a Detroit Lions uniform, ooh-wee, watch out.”

It’s a nice idea, but it may not be that simple. As Around The League’s Chris Wesseling pointed out, Detroit is currently just $2 million below the projected salary cap for the 2013 season. There Lions have 23 unrestricted free agents on their roster, so they will have to take care of some of their own in addition to seeing what’s available. At age 27 and coming off his two best seasons as a pro, Bush is going to look to cash in on what should be the final big contract of his career.

The Lions were a disappointing 4-12 last season, but their record is not a good indicator of where they’re at as a team. They have some holes — mostly on defense — and very little money. With the way Joique Bell emerged as a viable running back option toward the end of last season, they might be best suited spending their limited funds elsewhere.

Reggie Bush doesn’t think much of Buffalo women

There may not be many viewers who are looking forward to a matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills on Thursday night, but Reggie Bush gave the game a spark on Tuesday without even realizing it. Say what you will about us, but don’t insult our women.

During an appearance on the “Paul and Young Ron Show” in Miami, one of the hosts reminded Bush of how cold it will be on Thursday night but said the fans are so used to it that women will be out there topless in that weather. The other host sarcastically said to Reggie that he wouldn’t want to see that, and the Dolphins running back agreed.

“Not Buffalo women,” Bush said.

Shots fired! Tom Brady once insulted the hotels in Buffalo and that resulted in this billboard going up to protest his next visit. Does that mean we’re going to see a billboard telling the women of Buffalo to stay away from Bush or escort services to turn down his business should be get a little lonely? We shall see.

Antonio Cromartie: Reggie Bush is a punk

Unfortunately for us, the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets are not likely to play each other again until next season. Over the past week or so the trash talk the two teams have traded has turned into a complete sideshow. That continued after Miami’s dominating 30-9 win on Sunday when Antonio Cromartie had some choice words for Reggie Bush.

Bush broke a 19-yard run in the first quarter and got into it with Cromartie ater the play. Cromartie head-butted Bush and was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.

“I didn’t lose my composure, I was just telling him that he’s a punk,” Cromartie told reporters after the game according to ESPNNewYork.com. “That’s exactly what he is.

“I didn’t head-butt him. I pushed him first and then I head-butted him.”

Oh, well in that case…

After hearing that Bush also accused the Jets of laying down and giving up once they dug themselves into a hole, I’m sure Cromartie would think he’s even more of a punk. Antonio’s comments concluded a week in which people were called names and threats were flying all over the place. Roger Goodell is probably breathing a sigh of relief knowing the two teams won’t meet again this year unless a highly unlikely postseason matchup should arise. Everyone’s jaw muscles could use the rest.

Reggie Bush: Jets ‘laid down a little bit’

The New York Jets and Miami Dolphins exchanged plenty of trash talk leading up to Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium and, when the contest was over, it was the Dolphins left with bragging rights.

The Dolphins jumped out to an early lead against the Jets, were up 20-0 at halftime, and 27-3 after three quarters before eventually scoring a 30-9 win over their division rival. Perhaps nobody from the Dolphins was more pleased to get the big win than Reggie Bush, whom the Jets seemed to target to injure during the Week 2 meeting between the teams.

Bush only had 59 yards on 14 carries, but he fired up his team with a 19-yard run on the opening drive that included a stiff-arm on Antonio Cromartie. Add in a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, and the Dolphins didn’t need a ton of offense. Bush even says the Jets let up once the Dolphins got on top.

Mike Pouncey: Aaron Maybin is a joke, won’t play enough to hit Reggie Bush

It may only be Thursday, but the Miami Dolphins and New York Jets have exchanged enough trash talk over the past four days to last an entire season. Most of it has centered around Reggie Bush, as some of the Jets players have vowed to get revenge on Bush after he called Darrelle Revis’ season-ending injury karma.

One of those New York players was linebacker Aaron Maybin, who told ESPNNewYork.com on Thursday that Miami wants to knock Bush out of the game with a legal hit. Dolphins center Mike Pouncey said he is not all that concerned about Maybin injuring Bush, since he believes Aaron will spend most of Sunday’s game warming the bench.

“I don’t even want to talk about (Maybin),” Pouncey told Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel. “He’s a joke. He’s not even going to play enough plays to touch Reggie. I have to be on punt block to say something to him.”

Now children, let’s all just take a deep breath and count to ten. The game will be here soon enough. Earlier this week, Rex Ryan said he wants Bush to apologize for saying Revis deserved to go down. With the way things are heading, it sounds like the Jets and Dolphins will need a kindergarten teacher on Sunday instead of an NFL officiating crew.

LaRon Landry: ‘I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting’

Reggie Bush was injured at the hands of the New York Jets earlier this year, and LaRon Landry does not feel the slightest bit of remorse about it. Landry and Sione Po’uha combined on the hit that fortunately caused only a minor injury to Bush’s left knee, and Landry said he is confident it will be in the back of the Dolphins running back’s mind and make him gun shy in the future.

“He will remember that hit,” Landry said Wednesday according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. Just watch the way he runs on Sunday. I’m not going to overtalk it or make it a story.”

Prior to their first meeting, Rex Ryan mentioned that the Jets need to “throw some hot sauce” on Bush because he had been running so well. After Bush hurt his knee, Calvin Pace made some questionable comments that had some wondering if the Jets were trying to injure him. That led to Bush saying Darrelle Revis’ season-ending knee injury was karma, and now the mystery is whether or not New York will retaliate on Sunday.

If it comes down to a situation where Landry meets Bush in the open field, it doesn’t sound like he intends to show any mercy.

“If I get penalized, I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting,” Landry said when asked about his aggressive style of play. “I’m not going to stop the way I play.”

Not exactly the type of comments Roger Goodell’s wants to hear from the NFL’s defensive players. It’s one thing to say you won’t change the way you play to accomodate the new rules, but calling yourself a head hunter is never a bright idea. By making these comments, Landry is simply forcing the refs to keep a close eye on him this weekend.

Reggie Bush’s girlfriends all look alike (Picture)

Ever since breaking up with Kim Kardashian, it has been established that Reggie Bush has a type. The Dolphins running back likes brunettes with curvy bodies, just like Kim K.

In the photo above, you’re looking at Bush’s three most recent (publicized) girlfriends. From left-to-right, it’s Kim Kardashian, Melissa Molinaro, and Lilit Avagyan.

Bush and Kardashian had an on-again, off-again relationship from about 2007-2010. Despite seeing or being with other people, there have always been rumors that they were possibly getting back together.

Bush began dating model/actress Melissa Molinaro (middle) in June 2011. Her resemblance to Kardashian was considered so strong that Old Navy was sued by Kim K. for violating her rights and attempting to cause confusion in the marketplace.

Bush’s latest girlfriend is Lilit Avagyan, who began receiving attention this week after it was reported that she was pregnant with Reggie’s baby. Avagyan is Armenian like Kardashian, and looks similar to the reality TV star.

There must be some sort of Kim Kardashian power that sticks with guys after they date her. Even her ex-husband, Kris Humphries, began dating a girl with curvy features similar to Kim after the two divorced.
