Two running backs -- Reggie Bush and Rashard Mendenhall -- have wasted little time meeting with suitors at the outset of Tuesday's free agency frenzy.
Schein: Free agency matchmaker
Which team should nab Dashon Goldson? What's the best fit for Reggie Bush? Adam Schein matches players with teams. More ...
Bush has been linked to the Lions for weeks after it became apparent his days in Miami were over. He'd bring immediate juice to a Lions running game that has struggled amid Jahvid Best's inability to stay on the field. Bush isn't a power runner, but he would give Detroit an exciting weapon in the passing attack. He still possesses electrifying speed.
Mendenhall has been a streaky, disappointing pro. After a strong start in Pittsburgh, his checkered injury history and disciplinary issues soured the Steelers in keeping him. Despite all that, we don't expect either of these running backs to be out of work for long.
