The Dallas Cowboys’ pursuit of Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Jarrett Bush is over, before it really began.
Bush agreed to a three-year deal with the Packers on Tuesday, before the Cowboys could so much as schedule a visit with the cornerback/special teams ace. Dallas was reportedly targeting Bush as part of their ongoing efforts to shore up the secondary.
Entering his seventh year in the NFL, Bush led the Packers in special teams tackles in 2011. He also recorded a crucial interception in the Packers’ Super Bowl XLV victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers--which, as it happens, took place at Cowboys Stadium.
If it makes any hopeful Cowboys’ fans feel better, Bush was hardly Dallas’s first target in free agency. The Cowboys landed CB Brandon Carr and S Brodney Pool last week, and may still look to land a defensive back in the first round of next month’s NFL Draft.
