Lions cut RB Reggie Bush after two seasons with franchise
by Jason Butt |

The Lions released veteran running back Reggie Bush after two seasons with the organization.

Bush dealt with injuries throughout the 2014 season that limited him on the football field. He finished with just 297 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 76 carries. Bush also had 253 receiving yards. That's a far cry from his 2013 season, when he posted 1,512 total yards and seven total touchdowns. 

Bush had two years left on the deal he signed two years ago before being released. 

The Lions will save $1.72 million in cap space for the 2015 season by cutting Bush.

Locking up DeAndre Levy is not high priority for Lions
by Sean d'Oliveira |

With linebacker DeAndre Levy already signed for the 2015 season, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said signing Levy to a long-term deal will have to wait, reports

The Lions are currently discussing a contract with Ndamukong Suh and Mayhew said the team needs to concentrate on getting that deal done before any other moves can be made.

"[A long-term extension for Levy] may make sense, it may not," Mayhew said. "I'm not opposed to it. I obviously want him to be here a long time, but, you know, we obviously have some other big fish in the pan right now."

Levy will be a free agent after the 2015 season and Mayhew said he wants to keep Levy with the Lions.

"He's been outstanding, should have been in the Pro Bowl," Mayhew said. "He's one of the best 4-3 outside linebackers in the NFL, without question. You want to keep guys like that."

Lions GM: I'm planning on Calvin Johnson being around a long time
by Brandon Wise |

Lions general manager Martin Mayhew doesn't plan on losing star wide receiver Calvin Johnson anytime soon. 

"Man, Calvin's a stud," Mayhew said this week at the NFL combine. "Calvin's a great player. He's a phenomenal player, you know? He has a very bright future -- and a very bright past, you know? -- and I plan on him being around for a very long time."

Johnson is due $12.5 million in 2015 with a cap hit of $20.5 million and $15.9 million in 2016 with a $24 million cap hit. He and Matthew Stafford account for much of the Lions' salary. With Johnson dealing with more and more injuries, Mayhew could cut ties with him at some point. But he doesn't see that happening anytime soon.

"Sometimes guys get injured. It's not a big concern for me," Mayhew said. "He's tough. He gets out there and he plays. There was one game this year -- Buffalo -- where he gutted it out. He got out there, and unfortunately, he got another shot in that game in exactly in the same spot. Which was unfortunate."
