It didn’t take long for former Green Bay Packers tight end Brandon Bostick to find a new home.
Bostick was claimed by the Minnesota Vikings, because of course he was. Minnesota is where ex-Packers go to die.
The news was tweeted by Bostick’s agent Blake Baratz, who you will remember as the idiot who repped Jermichael Finley.
Everything happens for a reason. My man @Bostick11 is coming to my hood. Great landing spot, in my backyard, the best is yet to come my man!

Bostick was officially released by the Packers on Wednesday, even though he was notified of the move earlier in the week. His 2014 season, which was supposed to be his breakout year, was a disappointment to say the least.
Bostick finished with just two catches for three yards and one of the most costly special teams errors in Packers history.
“Everything happens for a reason”. Damn straight, either learn how not to be an egomaniac or learn how to catch the ball, run routes, and do your job.
“The best is yet to come.”
For his sake, I sure hope so, ’cause if his career gets any worse than it has so far he’ll be benchwarming in the CFL.
The inbreds in Minnesota are trying to suck some information from Bostick. It seems to be a theme the last couple of days.
In a related story, he didn’t actually sign the contract because he bobbled the pen…
Adrian Peterson appears to be returning to the Vikings and part of his deal was getting a new BoSTICK.
Ha! I see what you did there….
Vikings pick-up Bostick, hope to better understand Packers offense. I imagine the debriefing going something like this.
Coach Zimmer: “So, Brandon, can you share any insights into the Packers playbook?”
Brandon Bostick: “What’s a playbook?”
Exactly. The whole reason he fell out of favor was because he couldn’t grasp the system. What on earth are they going to learn from him?
“Minnesota is where ex-Packers go to die”.
The last 10 years the Vikings have pick up on former Packer players they thought could help them maybe beat us. It has not work so far. With the exception of Darren Sharper who played well for them the rest of the guys including Greg Gennings has been just above average. I wish Bostick luck in the land of the team that would like to be as good as the Packers. He was in a great position future HOF quarterback , pass happy offense , two outstanding receivers , and most of all the teams need for productive tight end to strecth the middle of the field and be a option in the red zone. Opportunity missed. Good luck with Norv Turner he still has a chance. This is still America.
Favre played way above average his first year in Minnesota. He made that team click like it never has before and made those receivers look much better than they actually were. While having one of the best seasons of his career Favre should have won MVP hands down, but because the NFL has the Mannings cocks lodged so far down their throats they gave it to Peyton as usual. No I did not jump ship and join the Favre/Viking bandwagon at the time. I just refuse to discredit his accomplishments because they were with another team. On that note, Fuck the Vikings.
This; all of this. It’s like you can read minds.
Longwell also did pretty damn well.
Hope they give him lots of special teams work.

Sounds like the kind of mentality that winds you up in Minnesota
Do I get any points? C’mon!
