Bostick, 27, reached the open market when the Jets declined to tender the then-restricted free agent a contract last month. In 2016, his lone season with Gang Green, Bostick started in seven of 16 appearances for a club devoid of solid options at tight end and caught eight of 11 targets for 63 yards. With blocking factored in, Pro Football Focus ranked Bostick 51st in overall performance among the league’s 63 qualified tight ends.
Prior to joining the Jets, Bostick saw action with the Packers from 2013-14 and totaled nine receptions and two touchdowns in 24 regular-season games. In the NFC championship game in January 2015, Bostick’s final contest with the Packers, his inability to field an onside kick helped the Seahawks make an improbable comeback and advance to Super Bowl XLIX.
