“Everything happens for a reason. My man [Brandon Bostick] is coming to my hood. Great landing spot, in my backyard, the best is yet to come my man!” tweets Minneapolis-based agent Blake Baratz, suggesting that the former Packers tight end has landed with the Vikings.
Ben Goessling of ESPN.com confirms (via Twitter) that Bostick didn’t even reach the open market, as the Vikings claimed him off waivers, allowing the player who mishandled a key onside kick in this year’s NFC Championship game to get a chance for a fresh start with one of Green Bay’s division rivals. The Packers officially announced yesterday that they had parted ways with Bostick.
Here are more Wednesday minor moves from around the NFL, with any new transactions added to the top of the list throughout the day:
- Howard University quarterback Greg McGhee has opted to bypass the NFL draft process and sign with the CFL’s BC Lions, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). The former MEAC offensive player of the year will join up with Jeff Tedford when he goes north of the border.
- Defensive back Varmah Sonie, who joined the Buccaneers’ practice squad for the final couple weeks of the 2014 season, has signed with the Browns, tweets Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Prior to signing with Tampa Bay in December, Sonie played for Portland’s Arena League team.
