Reggie Bush signs with Lions: Highlights from his introductory press conference

Reggie Bush is officially a member of the Detroit Lions. Here are some highlights from his introductory press conference.

The Detroit Lions officially signed running back Reggie Bush on Wednesday. Shortly after news of the signing leaked out, a press conference was held at the Lions' facility in Allen Park. Lions head coach Jim Schwartz was the first to speak, and Bush later answered questions about what went into his decision to sign with Detroit. Here are highlights from the presser.

First things first, a photo op:

Schwartz opens by remembering the start of his coaching career with the Lions.

Clearly, he's glad Bush will be on his team now.

And now, it's Bush's turn to speak.

What possibilities is Bush referring to? The opportunity to join an already high-powered offense.

Even though the Lions went 4-12 last season, Bush is joining them with the expectation of this being a winning team.

And now, a nod to the people who helped convince Bush to sign with the Lions.

Bush closed out the presser by saying that he isn't sure what his number will be since 22 is retired. One thing I can guarantee is that when he does pick a number, his jersey will fly off the shelves. There is a lot of excitement surrounding this signing, and the buzz is pretty incredible.

Welcome to Detroit, Reggie.
