Jarrett Bush

Pretty much just as soon as we were done going over cornerback Jarrett Bush‘s free agent options, news arrived he had re-signed with the Green Bay Packers.

Bush signed a three-year deal. Financials have not been reported.

The move is the first signing the Packers have made since free agency started and brings back the team’s best special teams player and one of their top defensive backups.

Bush tested the market — visiting the Jets and Arizona — before re-signing with the Packers because he wanted to see if he could find a starting job. He didn’t and ultimately received the best offer from the Packers.

“The only way he would have left the Packers was if there was a starting job and any big upfront money,” his agent Derrick Fox said. “He absolutely loves Mike (McCarthy), Dom Capers and the entire organization. This kid has a great personality and he loves it there.”

The Packers will now, presumably, turn their attention to replacing center Scott Wells.
