Bush was originally with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2006, but was waived following the preseason.
Green Bay PackersEdit
Bush was claimed off of waivers by the Green Bay Packers one day after being cut by Carolina. He has played mainly as a third or fourth cornerback and on special teams during his career with the Packers.
On February 6, 2011 during Super Bowl XLV, after Pro-Bowl cornerback Charles Woodson suffered a broken collar bone, Bush would have to fill a cornerback slot as well as continue his special teams duties. In the second quarter, the Pittsburgh Steelers were on the Green Bay 49 yard line with a 2nd and 11. Bush made a great read and drove on a Ben Roethlisberger pass intended for Michael Wallace over the middle, resulting in the Packers second interception of the game. This would prove pivotal in the game, as the ensuing drive resulted with a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Greg Jennings. Bush ended Super Bowl XLV with one interception, one hit on quarterback, one pass defended, and five total tackles of which four were solo.
Following the 2014 season, the Packers did not re-sign Bush. Bush was then suspended by the NFL for 10 games for an illegal substance violation. No other NFL team signed Bush following the suspension.
Bush signed with Calgary's practice roster on November 10, 2016, the same day the Stampeders signed Bush's former Packer teammate Jarrett Boykin. Bush made the active roster for the 2017 CFL season, and recorded 2 special teams tackles during his first game played, but was demoted back to the practice roster after two weeks. After two more weeks on the practice roster, Bush was released on July 18. This was to make room for Reggie Begelton, a wide receiver who had been cut by Calgary after sustaining an injury in the preseason.
