Reggie Bush's days in a Miami Dolphins uniform are likely history.
The franchise is preparing to invest in free agent help at other positions with an eye on a bigger role for backups Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas. Miami could also seek additional help via the draft.
Where might that leave Bush?
The Detroit Lions didn't deny their interest, first reported at the NFL Scouting Combine, and multiple other teams have reportedly contacted Bush's representatives since the negotiating window with agents opened Saturday.
The Arizona Cardinals are one team showing "strong" interest, despite new coach Bruce Arians' statement last month that he views running backs not as receivers but ballcarries first and blockers second.
Bush's resume was beefed up from his time in Miami.
He rushed for more than 1,000 yards for the first time in 2011 and had 986 yards in 2012. The No. 2 overall pick in 2006, he turned 28 on March 2.
Bush was dealt to the Dolphins after playing a hybrid running back-wide receiver role in New Orleans.
