Reggie Bush 29 years old, 6-foot, 200 pounds 76 attemptes, 297 yards, 2 touchdowns, 40 receptions, 253 yards

Reggie has been rumored to be on the chopping block in Detroit. His ties with San Diego will always make me want him to make a return.

He wouldn’t be the best back to carry the ball out of the backfield, but he would be a dynamic option for the Chargers on offense. He is a great receiver out of the backfield. When Philip is in trouble in the passing game, he would have Reggie to toss the rock out to. When Reggie is out, he would have Danny to throw it to.

He wouldn’t be a bruiser for the team, but he would add speed and the threat for the big play. His ability to catch passes will be something that the team considers. This offense revolves around Philip Rivers and his ability to move the ball in the air. If he has another option to dump the ball out to, then it can only help the offense.
