Reggie Bush talks about first offseason with Lions

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush recently talked about his first offseason with his new team.

It's vacation time for NFL players, which is why Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush was recently in Paris. This is the last real chance for players to really relax before training camp, as they will then be in football mode until the end of the season. Hopefully for the Lions, that means Bush will be occupied until early February.

After the Lions wrapped up their minicamp and before he headed to Paris, Bush spoke with the team's official site about his first offseason in Detroit. He said that he "learned a lot," and he stressed the importance of players not taking things too easy during this break before training camp.

"I got a lot out of this offseason. I really got into the flow, I think, of the offense and started to develop relationships with my teammates.

"I think we laid out a foundation and now we have to continue to build on that. With this time off, guys have got to be smart and just make sure that we’re staying in shape, doing the right things and making the right decisions on and off the field."

Bush went on to say that his personal program calls for him to pick up the intensity right before training camp starts. He said "there has to be a happy medium where you’re still training hard, but you’re not killing yourself and wearing yourself down." In other words, it's important to stay in shape, but it's also important to be smart and not overwork yourself before training camp even gets here.
