Titans sign cornerback Bush to offer sheet

Needing help depth-wise in the secondary, the Tennessee Titans have signed restricted free agent Jarrett Bush to an offer sheet.

That means the Green Bay Packers will have seven days to match the offer the Titans have signed Bush to.

Bush visited last week with the Titans, one of three cornerbacks to do so, as they seek to replenish depth lost by the signing of Eric King with the Detroit Lions and the uncertain return of free agent Chris Carr.

Because Bush entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent and he was tendered at the lowest level of $1.01 million, the Titans would not owe the Packers any compensation in the form of draft picks if Green Bay chooses to let him go to Tennessee. He originally signed with the Carolina Panthers out of Utah State, and the Packers claimed him off waivers in 2006.

Immediate terms of the offer sheet were not known.

In three NFL seasons, Bush (6-0, 200) has played in 46 games with one start. He has primarily played in nickel and dime packages and on special teams.

He finished second with 17 special teams tackles for Green Bay this past season.
