Reggie Bush has been released by the Detroit Lions and will be seeking his fourth team in the NFL to sign him.

In an announcement made Wednesday (Feb. 25), the Lions said that Bush carried himself like “a pro.”

After only two seasons with the Lions, Bush was let go with two years remaining on his contract. If he had stayed in a Lions uniform, Bush would have made $3.5 million in 2015 and $4 million in 2016.

The USC standout and Heisman Trophy candidate only ran for 297 yards and two touchdowns with 253 receiving yards in 11 games in 2014.
