Detroit Lions running back and nine-year NFL veteran Reggie Bush isn't slowing down, per the Lions' official website.

Reggie Bush is not slowing down at all. 

This is what DetroitLions.com columnist Mike O'Hara observed in his July 29 article

"At least on the surface, running back Reggie Bush is defying the NFL theory that the shelf life for running backs is shorter than for most other positions. 

"There are no visible signs of wear and tear of serious damage as Bush enters his ninth pro season and second with the Lions. 

"Next March Bush will turn 30, the age threshold when running backs typically decline as if they're sliding down a ski jump. When they reach the 30 barrier, the falloff is fast and steep.

"Father Time wins every time as athletes battle to beat the clock, but Bush has a standoff in production and demeanor. His upbeat nature ingratiated him immediately with his teammates when he signed with the Lions last year, and he gave the offense a big-play threat running and receiving that had been nonexistent out of the backfield.

"Outwardly, it seems as if Bush never has a bad day. 

"'When he shows up on the field, he's always ready to go,' quarterback Matthew Stafford said after Monday's first training camp practice. 'He's a guy that has high energy. He works at his craft and understands what it takes to be successful in this league.

"'Physically, he looks great. He always looks the same. He looks healthy, which I know is a plus for a running back coming into a season, not starting off with any nicks. It seems like he's moving around great.'

"Bush has not been a workhorse back at any of his three stops -- New Orleans, Miami and now Detroit -- playing running back is still a grind that exposes players to a level of contract unlike other positions.

"Last season's league rushing stats show that running back is a position that relies on young legs.

"With 1,006 yards rushing, Bush was one of 13 backs to go over the 1,000-yard mark. Of the other 12, only the 49ers' Frank Gore."

On July 25, Bush hailed new Lions head coach Jim Caldwell's signing as the team's "biggest free-agent signing," per The Detroit Free Press' Kirkland Crawford: 

"'I think our biggest free-agent signing has been Jim Caldwell,' Bush said. 'I think he's exactly what this team needs, what this city needs, what this organization needs. And everything that he brings to this team, to this city, is all abou being a champion.'

"Bush went on to explain Caldwell's Super Bowl resume, including two trips there as coach in Indianapolis and another with Baltimore. 

"And then, he said Caldwell's impact for Bush is deeper than just football. 

"'Every team meeting that he's held has been exciting. And I feel like I've left that meeting a better person,' Bush said. 

 

"Bush referred to Caldwell in the interview as a 'player's coach,' and someone constantly reiterating 'the championship-caliber of playing, approaching the game; acting, walking, talking like champions.'"

The 29-year-old Bush has rushed for 5,168 yards and 33 touchdowns in 105 regular-season games for the New Orleans Saints, Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions, per ESPN stats
