The Detroit Lions announced Monday that they’ve acquired LB Jon Bostic from the Patriots in return for an undisclosed, conditional draft pick.
- Field Yates reports that the Patriots will receive a conditional seventh-round pick in 2017 from the Lions in return for Bostic.
This marks the second time Bostic has been traded in his NFL career.
It’s interesting that it took only a matter of months for former Patriots executive and current Lions GM Bob Quinn to trade for one of his former players.
Bostic, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2013. After two years in Chicago, the Bears dealt him to the Patriots for a sixth-round pick that later became Jordan Lucas.
Bostic is currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.941 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $842,381 for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Bostic appeared in 11 games for the Patriots and recorded just two tackles.
