The pipeline of Packers players signing with the Minnesota Vikings continues. Just days ago, tight end Brandon Bostick took to twitter to report his own release by the Packers. On Wednesday, it appears that he already has a new landing spot, and will just need to drive a few hours West:
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!— Blake Baratz (@blakebaratz) February 18, 2015
Baratz, who also represents (represented?) former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, is based in Minneapolis, which makes it obvious where Bostick has ended up. Bostick will join a talented tight end group that includes Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, and Chase Ford.
The Vikings acquired Bostick on waivers, as Bostick was released on Tuesday and subject to the waiver system. Therefore, Minnesota will be on the hook only for the remaining one year on Bostick's deal, which is for the league-minimum $585,000.
Here's Bostick's reaction:
Boom! We Got Action!— Brandon Bostick (@Bostick11) February 18, 2015
We wish Bostick the best of luck in 14 of the 16 games in the 2015 season.
UPDATE: The Vikings confirmed the transaction later Wednesday afternoon.
