“Thankful To Spend The First 3 Years Of My Career In GB. Unfortunately My Time There Has Ended. I Appreciate The Support From Everyone In GB!”
Bostick was responsible for the botched onside kick at the end of the NFC Championship game. Was his release purely for this reason alone? I for one hope not. If it was a bucket list of reasons then I can agree with this decision. Perhaps it was the way Richard Rodgers came on at the end of the season. And the Packers have other options at TE and a draft still to come. The red-zone offense for this team has been a point of weakness and the tight ends are often used in the red zone as blockers and as receiving threats.
So Bostick went out with class, but was his release (and the release of Slocum) a message to the special teams players on this Packers team? Mike McCarthy has made it clear that special teams will be better next year. To that end he will be attending all the meetings and it stands to reason that improvement in special teams play was part of the reason that McCarthy gave up play-calling duties.
So simple question, What is Packer nations thoughts about this release? Leave me a comment in the comments section below and…
Go Pack Go!
