League Office Has Effectively Ended Jarrett Bush’s Career

Jarrett Bush

Former Green Bay Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush doesn’t have a team and the league office has now made sure he isn’t going to find one.

The NFL suspended Bush four games for an incident earlier this offseason. Bush was arrested for public intoxication in his home of Vacaville, California back in March.

He was released and wasn’t charged with a crime.

Prior to being suspended, there was perhaps a slight chance that a team would bring Bush in if they suddenly found themselves in need of cornerback (or special teams) depth. Now, not so much. No team is going to sign an average player and then wait four games for him to be eligible to play.

But who cares, right?

Well, this just goes to show how idiotically arbitrary the NFL’s discipline is.

Jarrett Bush, who isn’t even on a team, gets four games for having too much to drink, even though he didn’t get charged with a crime. Meanwhile, Tom Brady gets four games for cheating and arguably diminishing the integrity of the game, and Greg Hardy gets four games for beating the shit out of his girlfriend.

So, in the league’s eyes having too much to drink is just the same as cheating the game or beating your woman.

Seems like that’s totally fucking legit.

    FOUR GAMES? Without being convicted of anything? WTF??????

    A quick Internets review of other NFL players charged with public intoxication indicates no suspensions. Antwon Blake, Daniel Kilgore….

    Goodell must have seen a media image of him in his Packers uniform and immediately handed out a 4 game suspension.

    You know the Pack & McCarty may need him back on special teams by game 6, or this might pique the interest of da Vikes whether for PED use or booze.

    He was on PEDS the drunk event had nothing to do with the suspension

    A 2 second google check would have told you he was suspended for PED use- had nothing to do with a drinking violation. Grade A reporting on this site as usual.
