Back in March, Lions coach Jim Schwartz said that the Lions plan to use running back Reggie Bush in a similar role to the one he played for the Saints during the first five years of his career.
It’s little surprise, then, that Bush appeared on the NFL Network Friday and said that the offense in Detroit is a lot like the one that the Saints ran while Bush was in New Orleans. Bush explained that it has made it easier to pick things up after signing with the Lions as a free agent.
“As far as from an offensive perspective it’s a lot like what we did in New Orleans,” Bush said. “It’s a lot of spread-open passing. Obviously we can attack downfield, and with the running game, a lot of screens, draws and stuff like that. Basically what I did in New Orleans, so running this offensive system has been pretty easy for me.”
