We know and we’re only kidding. However, if the Green Bay Packers did want to have a reunion with tight end Brandon Bostick, they certainly could. He was released by the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
Unfortunately for Bostick, that likely signals the end of the NFL line.
One, he just got released by the Minnesota Vikings and it doesn’t really get any worse than that. Two, they didn’t even wait until their final roster cuts to do so.
Bostick was apparently fourth on a tight end depth chart that features a suck ass and a couple of never will bes.
And that naturally brings us to this — the botched onside kick in the NFC Championship game.
That’s what ultimately got Bostick released from the Packers back in February. It was an all-time level gaffe. One where you have a clearly defined job to do and just decide, hell, not gonna do it! I’m going to do someone else’s job and try to be the hero. And you know how that turned out.
Things like that mess with a guy’s confidence.
We’re not suggesting Bostick was ever a Pro Bowl-caliber player, but we’d be willing to bet he was a shell of whatever player he used to be mentally since the NFC Championship game. Guys who don’t really believe in themselves don’t last long in the league.
Bostick had one catch for four yards this preseason.
Guy some dumb as a brick. I’m not surprised he failed in Minnesota.
I don’t feel bad for him either.
Fuck Brandon Bostick the football player, but I hope Bostick the human being has a solid support system around him, or at least the suicide hotline on speed dial.
