Over the past seven years, Jarrett Bush has seen hundreds of players pass through the Green Bay Packers’ locker room.

Since being claimed off waivers from Carolina in 2006, more than 30 draft picks have come and gone, yet the once-undrafted cornerback and special teams maven lingers.

While Bush’s name doesn’t jump off the page when you consider the longest-tenured players on the Packers’ roster, he’s one of six remaining players with ties to the first Packers squad Mike McCarthy coached in 2006.

In many ways, he’s a survivor. A veteran of 110 career games, Bush won a Super Bowl with the Packers in 2010 and weathered a defensive and special teams overhaul after a six-win season in 2008.

In the process, he’s carved out a nice pension for a cornerback who many experts criticized before the 2006 NFL draft as not being tough or explosive enough to last at the NFL level.

Although Bush’s coverage skills have come under fire at times, he’s a willing tackler with a workmanlike approach that’s made him the poster child for special teams play.

Only days away from his 29th birthday, Bush boarded the Packers’ Tailgate Tour bus earlier this week with full knowledge of his role on the team and no plans of letting up entering his eighth NFL season.

“I just try to stay consistent,” Bush said. “I’ve been a leader, I feel like the past four years, three years, I’ve been on the squad. I just continue to be the same man every day when I come into the locker room. My tendencies stay strong; how I prepare for the game; how I approach the game and who I watch to get to this point.”

Bush tested the waters last offseason in hopes of finding a place he could compete for a starting cornerback job before agreeing to stay in Green Bay with a three-year contract worth more than $5 million.

The 6-foot, 200-pound veteran got that chance with Charles Woodson moving to safety in the team’s 3-4 base defense but conceded the job to Sam Shields after a season-opening loss to San Francisco.
