When Will The Packers Re-Sign Jarrett Bush?

Green Bay Packers news | Future murky for Bush, secondary | Green Bay Press Gazette. There doesn't seem to be any news to report on Green Bay Packers CB Jarrett Bush. He apparently wants to return, and from what Mike McCarthy said recently, the team would like him back too.

He does a good job on special teams, and he's been avoided the penalties that he used to commit. If he's going to be re-signed because he's a special teams ace, then he might receive a three-year, $6 million contract similar to the one the 49ers just gave to C.J. Spillman. On the other hand, GM Ted Thompson isn't known for overpaying veterans, and $2 million per season might be too rich for him.

But maybe, Jarrett Bush's agent didn't comment, some team will squint and think he can be a reliable nickel back or even a starting corner. A veteran good enough to start at either of those positions (not that Bush has ever shown that he's capable of starting) should be paid more than $2 million per season.

I'm still pessimistic that he'll re-sign with the Packers, and take away a roster spot from a more promising young corner. While the improvements on special teams in 2011 was largely due to the emergence of Randall Cobb, Bush was the special teams captain, so I wouldn't want there to be a drop off on that unit either. This shouldn't be a big contract, and Bush doesn't play a very big role on defense, so it's not a big problem if he's re-signed.
