Dropped from Team

The Lions release Bush, saving the team $1.7 million in salary space. Had the Lions kept Bush, they would have had a $5.28 million cap charge for 2015. Lions general manager Mayhew:

It’s not about Reggie Bush. It’s about the process of evaluating where you are as a football team. We have a bunch of meetings after the season. The coaching staff meets. The scouting department meets together and we evaluate everybody’s performance.

Part of that, from my standpoint as GM and in terms of setting up our team, is how much of a contribution each guy made to the football team that year. In Reggie’s situation, obviously last year he was injured so you have to look at the contribution versus how much you’re paying a player. It’s not just Reggie. It’s every player on the team.
