Detroit Lions WR Nate Burleson is trying to convince Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Reggie Bush to sign with the team in the offseason. "I know it's not as sunny, and it might not be the same type of glitz and glamor, but you can do wonders for us," Burleson said during a television interview with NFL Network Monday, Feb. 18. "He came from USC, and everybody knows he can go out there and shake a little bit, wiggle a little bit and break that big run. And for him to put up two 1,000-yard seasons the last couple years proves that he's still an elite running back. And if I can get Reggie Bush in a Detroit Lions uniform, ooh-wee, watch out."
