Packers Sign Tight End Bostick, Reach 90 Player Maximum

The Green Bay Packers are back up to the 90-player roster maximum today, as they announced the signing of tight end Brandon Bostick. Bostick played wide receiver at Division II Newberry College in South Carolina, and was a member of the basketball team as well.

Bostick measures in at 6 feet, 3 inches and 245 pounds and is a good athlete, consistently running his 40-yard dash between 4.54 and 4.59 seconds. He took part in the Packers' rookie camp in early May but did not earn a contract right away. Bostick was also voted second-team All-Conference in his senior year.

This signing brings the total number of tight ends on the roster back up to seven, as he joins a squad that already consists of Jermichael Finley, Tom Crabtree, Andrew Quarless, D.J. Williams, Ryan Taylor, and Eric Lair. Bostick is probably a long-term project, having moved from wideout, but the combination of athleticism and basketball skills has worked for other tight ends recently.
