Early years

Bush attended Vaca Pena Middle School and Will C. Wood High School in Vacaville, California. He played both defensive back and wide receiver.

Professional career

Carolina Panthers

Bush was originally with the Carolina Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2006, but was waived following the preseason.

Green Bay Packers

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 March 13, 2009 the Tennessee Titans signed Bush to an offer sheet.[1] The Packers matched the Titans offer on March 16.[2]

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.[3] Bush ended Super Bowl XLV with one interception, one hit on quarterback, one pass defended, and five total tackles of which four were solo.[4][5]

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.[6] No other NFL team signed Bush following the suspension.

Calgary Stampeders

Bush signed with Calgary's practice roster on November 10, 2016, the same day the Stampeders signed Bush's former Packer teammate Jarrett Boykin.[7] 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.[8] 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.[9]

2011 Green Bay Packers season

The 2011 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 93rd season overall and their 91st in the National Football League, and the sixth under head coach Mike McCarthy. The team not only improved on their 10–6 record from a season earlier, they became just the sixth team in NFL history to win 15 games during the regular season. As of 2017, the 15–1 record stands as the best in team history. The Packers won their first 13 games of the season to extend their winning streak from the previous season to 19, the second-longest in NFL history behind the 21-game winning streak of the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004, and also tied the record for the best start to a season in NFC history that the New Orleans Saints had set in 2009. The only loss for the Packers during the regular season was a Week 15 defeat in Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs. They also became the first NFC North team to go undefeated in the division since the 1987 Chicago Bears.

Statistics site Football Outsiders calculated that the Packers were, play for play, the best team in the NFL in 2011 (though they received the second-lowest rating for a number-1 team since the 1993 San Francisco 49ers). According to the site, the Packers' offense was historically prolific, ranking as the second-best pass offense and third-best total offense since they began calculating. Furthermore, quarterback Aaron Rodgers had the fourth-most-prolific season, play by play, since calculations began and some have called it one of the most efficient seasons ever by a quarterback by setting the NFL record for highest passer rating in a season (122.5). The 2011 Packers are one of only five teams in NFL history to score 35 points or more nine times in a single season and one of only two teams to score 42 points or more in at least six games, the other being the 2013 Broncos. The Packers' 70 total touchdowns are tied with the 1984 Dolphins for the third-most touchdowns scored in a season, and their 51 total touchdown passes are tied with the 2004 Colts for second-most touchdown passes in a season. The defense was ranked last, 32nd, in the league in yards allowed and surrendered an NFL record 4,796 passing yards despite leading the league in interceptions, with 31.

With their record-setting offense, their 15–1 record, and their having home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, the Packers were aiming to repeat as Super Bowl champions, and become the first team to win back-to-back titles since the Patriots in 2003 and 2004. However, the Packers instead became the first team to finish with at least 15 victories and not win a playoff game, as they were beaten in a shocking upset by the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants 37–20 at Lambeau Field. The Packers became just the sixth team to win 15 games in the regular season, joining the 1984 49ers, 1985 Bears, 1998 Vikings, 2004 Steelers and the 2007 Patriots, who finished the regular season undefeated at 16–0. The Packers became the fourth consecutive team with at least fifteen victories to fail to win the Super Bowl.

2012 Green Bay Packers season

The 2012 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 94th season overall and their 92nd in the National Football League, and the seventh under head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers won the NFC North division title for the second year in a row with an 11–5 record. The Packers lost in the divisional round of the playoffs to the eventual NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers by the score of 45-31, finishing with a postseason record of 1-1.

The Packers offense finished the season fifth in points and eleventh in yards per game. The defense finished eleventh in points allowed and twenty-second in yards allowed per game.

2013 Green Bay Packers season

The 2013 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 95th season overall, the 93rd in the National Football League, and the eighth under head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers came into the 2013 season looking to win the NFC North for the 3rd year in a row. They came off a 45-31 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional Playoffs the previous season. The Packers started the 2013 season in a rematch with the 49ers, to whom they lost 34-28. After winning their home opener against the Redskins, Green Bay lost 34-30 in Cincinnati to the Bengals after holding a 30-14 lead in the 3rd quarter. Following the loss in Cincinnati, the Packers won 4 games in a row to sit at 5-2 before losing a Monday Night game at home to the Bears, 27-20. In that game, the Packers lost star quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a broken collarbone in the 1st quarter. He would be replaced by backups Scott Tolzien and Matt Flynn during recovery. In week 12, the Packers tied the Vikings 26-26; it was Green Bay's first tie since 1987.

The Packers would lose the next game 40-10 to the Lions on Thanksgiving to sit at 5-6-1, threatening to miss the postseason for the first time since 2008. The Packers then rallied to beat the Falcons 22-21 to even their record at 6-6-1. The following week, the Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys 37-36 in Dallas after they had trailed 26-3 at halftime. The comeback was the largest in franchise history. The Packers would then lose a shootout with the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-31 at home to sit at 7-7-1, the first meeting between the teams since Super Bowl XLV. The following week, the Packers defeated the Chicago Bears 33-28 at Soldier Field to clinch the NFC North in a game in which the winner would've clinched the division. The game is well-known for a touchdown catch made by Randall Cobb from Aaron Rodgers with less than a minute remaining to seal the win. The play came on a 4th and 8 situation in which Cobb was wide open near the endzone. The Packers entered the playoffs as the 4 seed in the NFC. In the wild card game, they lost 23–20 in a rematch with the 49ers on a Phil Dawson field goal as time expired. The game was one of the coldest in NFL playoff history, with a final temperature of 5 °F (-15 °C)

The Packers would again lose Aaron Rodgers to a collarbone injury almost four years later in 2017. However, the team’s fortunes without Rodgers were much poorer the second time; the team would fail to win the division that year, finishing in third behind a more competent Detroit Lions team and surrendering the division title to arguably one of the most talented Minnesota Vikings teams in years. As a result, the Packers did not qualify for the postseason that year.

2015 Green Bay Packers season

The 2015 Green Bay Packers season was the franchise's 97th season overall, 95th in the National Football League, and the tenth under head coach Mike McCarthy. With a Week 15 win over the Oakland Raiders, the Packers clinched a playoff spot for the seventh consecutive season, but they failed to win their fifth consecutive NFC North title after a Week 17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings as does matching their 12-4 record from last season. As a result, the fifth-seeded Packers traveled to Washington to face the fourth-seeded Redskins in the Wild Card round. They beat the Redskins 35–18, and then traveled to Arizona for a rematch against the second-seeded Arizona Cardinals, where the Packers' season ended as they lost to the Cardinals in overtime, 20–26.

2016 Calgary Stampeders season

The 2016 Calgary Stampeders season was the 59th season for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 82nd overall. The Stampeders finished in 1st place in the West Division and finished with a 15–2–1 record. The Stampeders qualified for the playoffs for the 12th straight year and advanced to the Grey Cup game where they lost to the Ottawa Redblacks. This season was Dave Dickenson's first year as head coach after John Hufnagel moved into a strict general manager role.

In the early morning hours of September 25, 2016, Stampeders defensive back Mylan Hicks was shot and killed at a Calgary nightclub. Fellow defensive back and teammate Jamar Wall changed his jersey number from 29 to no. 31 for the rest of the season in honour of Hicks. Each game played in week 15 across the league had a moment of silence in honour of Mylan Hicks. As a gesture to his memorial, the pistols that adorned the shoulders of the black alternate jersey were covered up.With their week 16 win over the Toronto Argonauts, the Stampeders clinched first place in the West Division, a first-round bye in the 2016 playoffs, and hosted the 2016 West Final game. A win in that game over the BC Lions gave them a berth into the 104th Grey Cup. The Stampeders lost the Grey Cup game 39–33 to the Ottawa Redblacks in overtime.
