According to the Detroit News the Saints could ask Reggie Bush to restructure his contract or be released if he refuses.
There are a number of teams that could be interested in Bush.
The Seahawks need a running back and who knows Bush better than his former college coach, Pete Carroll, who was hired last month from Southern California.
Bush could provide the Lions with a home-run threat.
It is believed that the 49ers would be interested in Bush as a steady backup to Frank Gore.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that the Texans decided against pursuing RB Larry Johnson as a boost to their running game, which currently ranks No. 27 in the league.
Johnson was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 9 after serving a two-week suspension for using gay slurs and criticizing Chiefs coach Todd Haley. The Texans cited faith in their current running backs and concerns about disrupting team chemistry as their reasons for passing on Johnson.
"We took all the factors into consideration -- football, off-the-field issues, and we determined that it wasn't a good fit for us at this time," Texans GM Rick Smith said, as quoted by McClain. "We've got confidence in our backs. When we come back from our open date, we expect big things out of them."
Houston also took a look at RB Edgerrin James after the veteran RB was released by the Seahawks last week, but opted to pass on him, too.

Seattle starting QB Matt Hasselbeck is scheduled to practice on Wednesday, and the News Tribune reports that if things go well, he could return to action as early as Sunday, when the Seahawks will host Jacksonville.
Hasselbeck suffered a fractured rib on Sept. 20 after a hard hit from 49ers LB Patrick Willis. He has missed two games since. Seattle has lost three straight games.
Seahawks coach Jim Mora said whether Hasselbeck plays on Sunday will depend on how he feels when he returns to practice.
"I think if he can do some things, that will give him a little more confidence," Mora said. "And then if he can do a little bit more Thursday, a little bit more Friday and hopefully be ready to go Sunday. But we just have to see."
