The Green Bay Packers have made their first move in free agency this offseason, re-signing one of their own: defensive back/special teams ace Jarrett Bush. Bush's agent, Derrick Fox, said he completed the three-year deal "just a couple of minutes ago." Fox wouldn't disclose financial terms but said it's "better than the last three-year deal he did." Bush's last contract was a three-year, $4.5 million contract with a $1 million signing bonus. At the time, he was restricted free agent, and the Packers matched an offer by the Tennessee Titans. This time around, as an unrestricted free agent, Bush visited the New York Jets over the weekend and the Arizona Cardinals yesterday. He was scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow. "I asked him if that's what he really wanted," Fox said. "And he said, 'No, I want to be a Packer.' That's what he wanted from the beginning." Bush has played both safety and cornerback for the Packers since he joined the team as a waiver claim in 2006. It's unlikely he will get the chance to compete for a starting safety job if Nick Collins' neck injury forces him to retire, but his role as a core special teams player made him valuable to the Packers.
