Vikings sign Brandon Bostick; former Packer picked up on waivers

If you thought the trend of the Vikings picking up Packers players was over, think again.

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:

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:

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.
