The Green Bay Packers have tried to put tight end Brandon Bostick out of their minds. They did that when they released him.
And with good reason.
Bostick was responsible for one of the most idiotic plays in team history. One where he decided that instead of doing the job he was sent onto the field to do, that he’d try to be the hero.
You know how that turned out and you get to be reminded of it today because the Seattle Seahawks are in town.
Bostick owned the mistake after the game, but that obviously wasn’t enough for some people.
But maybe it’s time for you to stop threatening to kill the guy.
Yeah, that’s happened.
“I’ve had a lot of death threats,” said Bostick. “I don’t take them serious and I’m not too worried about it. I still get a lot of hate mail and stuff. I expected that. I read it all, I took it on, and I just use it as fuel.”
Bostick was signed by the Minnesota Vikings after being released by the Packers because, of course.
He was released by Minnesota when they trimmed their roster to 75 this preseason and has since signed with the Arizona Cardinals, where he’s on the practice squad.
That’s a pretty big fall for a guy who, just last season, many — including us — thought could play a big role in the Packers offense.
That’s probably enough. No need to kill the guy.
All the best to him. He has had enough shit thrown at him for that play to last many lifetimes. He was not the only one that shit the bed that day . . . Ask CMIII, he watched it all from the sidelines . . .
