08:03 AM ET 02.18 | Sometimes a follow is just a follow. Maybe it means nothing. Or maybe it's foreshadowing of what's to come. As first pointed out on the website Pride of Detroit's Twitter feed (courtesy of a reader), Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford recently started following soon-to-be free-agent running back Reggie Bush on the social media site. The Lions are looking for a speed option for their backfield to replace Jahvid Best, and Bush has been one name frequently mentioned as a possibility. ... Bush may end up costing too much money for the Lions, who are about $2 million under next year's projected salary cap with 23 unrestricted free agents on their roster. But the almost 28-year-old is coming off one of his best NFL seasons.

Well you know, he doesn't want everybody to know at this point.

Bush still has some game left.

OK, but did anyone tell Matt the Lions do not have the cap room right now to sign a practice squad player to their roster?

"You mean, sexually?" was my first reaction to the headline.

Bush should stay away from Detroit, He would be better off in Atlanta, Dallas or New England if they can afford him, add Green Bay to the List!!!

I guess it's kind of like being with Kim Kardashian without the public shame of actually being with Kim Kardashian.

Or not.

Maybe he just wants him to play the center position for him in the locker room?

And said signal involved feet under the bathroom stall walls.

What two grown men tweet to each other is their own business. Consensual tweeting is legal.

I wish I was an athlete, with every click of my mouse being analyzed...

If Stafford can get his teammates to turn the labels out, they might land Bush. Its only weird if it doesn't work.

February 18, 2013  12:52 PM ET

Getting Bush is always a good thing. Now how about fixing that defense?

If I were a Detroit fan, I'd have lots of labels to turn out.

Every click of your mouse is being analyzed. I was looking for a kitchen faucet 2 months ago, and I'm still seeing ads over there -> for Price-Pfister and Moen.

Now that Kim Kardashian has moved on Stafford sees his chance.

Bush won't have any of that. Once you go Kardashian you may never go back.
