  1. How Much Does Reggie Bush Have Left in the Tank?Read the original story w/Photo

    6 hrs ago | BleacherReport

    The challenge was understandable: How does one manage to turn off the mind when there are thoughts of playing alongside Calvin Johnson and all the running lanes his presence creates?

"I got about two or three hours of sleep last night, just because I was up, and I was thinking about all the possibilities," Bush said in 2013 during his introductory press conference after the then free agent signed a four-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $16 million.
