Lions' Rafael Bush: Poised to be Lions' starting strong safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush is poised to be the Lions' starting strong safety entering 2016, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bush has taken every first-team rep more than a week into training camp alongside entrenched-starter Glover Quin and appears to have won out in his competition with fellow free-agrent acquisition Tavon Wilson for Detroit's starting strong safety job. Wilson figures to be the team's No. 3 safety and should take the field in nickel packages. This pecking order doesn't figure to change before Week 1.

Lions' Rafael Bush: Will compete for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rafael Bush will compete with Tavon Wilson for the Detroit Lions ' starting job at strong safety this offseason, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The Lions have a void to fill opposite incumbent FS Glover Quin (ankle), and Lion's GM Bob Quinn recently declared the newly-signed Bush a candidate for the gig. Tavon Wilson, the Lions' other free-agent signing at safety, appears to be Bush's main competition for the job, though Quinn didn't rule out the possibility of Detroit also adding more players to the competition as the offseason continues. For now, Bush is the favorite to win the role. He is undoubtedly the more tenured of the two, as Bush started 14 games for the Saints between 2013 and 2015, compared to Wilson's four total career starts. Should Bush win out, and avoid the injury bug that has plagued him the past two seasons, he will aim to improve a Detroit defense that surrendered a 10th-worst 25.0 points per game in 2015.

Lions' Rafael Bush: Signs one-year deal with Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rafael Bush signed a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Detroit Lions on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It's a prove-it deal for the 28-year-old safety, who had to miss nearly the entire season after tearing a pectoral muscle in New Orleans' season opener. He will compete with fellow 2016 free agent Tavon Wilson for a starting spot next to Glover Quin.
