Titans can't take Bush from Green Bay

Cornerback Jarrett Bush will not be the newest Tennessee Titan. ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports Green Bay has matched the three-year offer sheet, ensuring Bush remains a member of the Packers.

The Titans were looking for Bush to help replenish depth in the secondary.

Starting cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Nick Harper are locked in, and the Titans re-signed nickelback Vincent Fuller, who was an unrestricted free agent.

But beyond that the team lost Eric King to Detroit and Chris Carr to Baltimore and has shown no interest in bringing back free agent Reynaldo Hill.

The Titans like Cary Williams, a seventh-round pick out of Washburn in 2008, who was on the practice squad for the bulk of the season before playing in one game last season, then finishing on injured reserve.

The Titans have successfully signed a restricted free agent with no compensation attached the last two years -- linebacker Ryan Fowler from Dallas in 2007 and Carr from Oakland in 2008.
