The Detroit Lions signed unrestricted free agent safety Rafael Bush to a one-year contract Saturday.

The deal is worth up to $2.4 million, according to reports.


The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Bush enters his sixth NFL season following previous stints with the Atlanta Falcons (2010), Denver Broncos (2011) and New Orleans Saints (2012-15). In 2015, he played in the Saints' season opener at Arizona before being placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season with a torn pectoral muscle.

Originally signed by the Falcons as an undrafted rookie free agent out of South Carolina State in 2010, the 28-year-old Bush's career totals include 46 games (14 starts), 104 tackles, one interception, eight pass defenses, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries.
