Lions land free agents Bush, Quin, Jones

Reggie Bush is joining the Detroit Lions, part of a big day Wednesday in which team also landed free agents Glover Quin and Jason Jones and retained Chris Houston.
Bush gives Detroit another speedy playmaker for an offense that already includes star receiver Calvin Johnson. He's being brought in to help improve an inconsistent running game. Jahvid Best, a first-round draft pick in 2010, didn't play at all last season, and his future is in doubt because of concussion problems.
Quin, a 27-year-old safety, started 16 games in each of the last three seasons for Houston. Jones, a defensive end, didn't start for Seattle last year, but he could play a bigger role with the Lions.
Houston, a cornerback, started 42 games for the Lions over the last three seasons.
