Former Green Bay Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush is slated to serve a four-game suspension to start the 2015 season, but according to ESPN.com's Field Yates, the veteran has been suspended another 10 games by the NFL

Circumstances regarding the lengthier ban have not yet been reported. 

The free-agent corner had previously been suspended four games due to a violation of the league's performance-enhancing substance policy, per ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky

Back in March, Bush was arrested for misdemeanor public intoxication, although no charges were filed, per Demovsky

After spending his first nine NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers, the team let the 31-year-old walk in free agency. A kickoff and punt return ace who's capable of slotting in at several different positions in the secondary, Bush finished last season as one of the league's 20 best special teamers.

According to Pro Football Focus, Bush ranked 19th overall among special teams players, with an overall grade of plus-5.5. But despite those redeemable skills, he figures to have trouble finding a new employer in the near future with his cumulative suspensions adding up to 14 games.

Now, Bush may merely be holding out hope that a needy team is willing to take a flier on his talent next offseason.
