Jarrett Bush, Not Morgan Burnett, was Taunting Tony Gonzalez

Jarrett Bush

ESPN the Magazine published a profile on former Atlanta Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez last week. In it, Gonzalez described an incident against the Green Bay Packers where Morgan Burnett was taunting him.

No teammates came to Gonzalez’s defense during the game, so he decided to retire right then, as the story goes. When Burnett heard of this, he denied it.

We surmised that Gonzalez had his Packers mixed up since Burnett didn’t cover him during the game. Well, Jarrett Bush stepped up and admitted he was the guy talking trash to Gonzalez in a Twitter conversation with Rob Demovsky.

Mystery solved!

Whatever Bush was going during that game, it worked. Gonzalez had just three catches for 25 yards. Bush, meanwhile, had a pick and knocked down two passes.

      jarrett bush can’t really be described as a young pup, considering he’s been on this team for mccarthy’s entire tenure

    Great comment. You win the internet for today.

    Whatever else he is, JB is entertaining. Multiple instances of horrible coverage but he has made some big plays, too. Love the pick in the Super Bowl but he might have been in the wrong spot. Helluva a special teamer.
