Jarrett Lee Bush (born May 21, 1984) is an American football cornerback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. He was originally signed by the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2006, but was claimed by Green Bay immediately following the preseason of his rookie year and has played there ever since. He played college football at Utah State and American River College.

Early years[edit]

Bush attended Vaca Pena Middle School and Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville, California. He played both defensive back and wide receiver.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Carolina Panthers[edit]

Bush was originally with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2006, but was waived following the preseason.

Green Bay Packers[edit]

Bush was claimed off of waivers by the Green Bay Packers one day after being cut by Carolina. He has played mainly as a third or fourth cornerback and on special teams during his career with the Packers.

On March 13, 2009 the Tennessee Titans signed Bush to an offer sheet.[2] The Packers matched the Titans offer on March 16.[3]

On February 6, 2011 during Super Bowl XLV, after Pro-Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson suffered a broken collar bone, Bush would have to fill a cornerback slot as well as continue his special teams duties. In the second quarter, the Steelers were on the Green Bay 49 yard line with a 2nd and 11. Bush made a great read and drove on a Ben Roethlisberger pass intended for Michael Wallace over the middle, resulting in the Packers second interception of the game. This would prove pivotal in the game, as the ensuing drive resulted with a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings.[4] Bush ended Super Bowl XLV with one interception, one hit on quarterback, one pass defended, and five total tackles of which four were solo.[5]
