Jarrett Bush trying to cut down on penalties


<a href=”http://www.greenbaypressgazette.com/article/20090821/PKR01/90821129/1058″>feature article</a>

on former Aggie Jarret Bush, still playing for the Green Bay Packers and working on cleaning up his game.

<em>He was a regular at the Packers’ offseason practices, and when minicamp ended in June, he headed to Arizona for an additional 3½ weeks of training. He boxed at a Scottsdale gym with teammate Charlie Peprah and also spent a week training with Sean Morey, the Pro Bowl special-teamer for the Cardinals, who worked with him on hand-fighting, footwork, hand placement and leverage.</em>

Dom Capers would like Bush to cut down on the special teams penalties, but likes his athleticism and versatility.

<em>”I think he’s a guy that gives us good flexibility in terms of he can play corner, he can play safety, he can play dime in the subpackage,” Capers said. “The more you can do in this league, the better it is, because you know you’re going to run into weeks where you might be down a guy or two and you have to have guys prepared to play more than one position.”</em>
