This guy was an undrafted free agent the Packers signed in 2012. He spent all last season on the practice squad. Further, he was a receiver in college at Newberry College. Where the hell is Newberry College? Don’t know.
And don’t care to look it up.
Suffice it to say Newberry College ain’t Alabama.
So Big Ted plucked Brandon Bostick out of some tiny-ass school and said, “Hey, we think you can be a tight end!”
And become a tight end Brandon Bostick has. He’s not going to supplant Jermichael Finley, but Bostick has been impressive this preseason. He can catch the ball, he can run the routes and he’s learning how to block.
There have even been reports that other teams are looking to trade for him. If the Packers don’t trade him, Bostick may beat out holdover Andrew Quarless for a roster spot.
