As we approach the new league year, the number of players receiving a pink slip is increasing steadily by the day. The latest big-name offensive skill player shown the door is Reggie Bush. The Lions officially released him on Wednesday. Bush had a very disappointing 2014, a year in which he missed five games and saw his rushing total drop about 70 percent from 2013 -- 1,006 yards to 297. The move will save the Lions a little more than $1.7 million in cap space, and the franchise will move forward with Joique Bell and Theo Riddick as its top two runners. Riddick will replace Bush as the team's top receiving back. Bush turns 30 years old next week.
