According to oddsmakers at, the Detroit Lions have 28/1 odds to win Super Bowl 50 next season. The Seattle Seahawks are favored to win it all, as they have 11/2 odds, while the Patriots have 6/1 odds.

The release of Bush will save Detroit $1.7 million in cap room for next season, money that could go to their efforts to keep defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The Lions are coming off an 11-5 season in 2014 where they reached the playoffs for the second time in four seasons before coming up short against the Dallas Cowboys. The Lions ranked just 28th in the NFL last season in rushing, averaging only 88.9 yards per game.
