The agent for former Packers TE Brandon Bostick, Blake Baratz, announced via his Twitter account that his client will be joining the Minnesota Vikings.
Everything happens for a reason. My man @Bostick11 is coming to my hood. Great landing spot, in my backyard, the best is yet to come my man!

Bostick, 25, was placed on waivers by the Packers a few days ago, but joining the Vikings could be a great situation for him, as he’ll get an opportunity to have a fresh start with a new team.
Bostick, 25, had another year remaining on his three-year, $1.485 million rookie contract, which included a base salary of $585,000. He would have been a restricted free agent in 2016.
Unfortunate for the young tight end, his time in Green Bay will be remember for the botched onside kick in which he was supposed to be blocking, but aided the Seahawks’ dramatic comeback in the NFC Championship game.
In 2014, Bostick appeared in 13 games for the Packers, but caught just two passes for three yards and a touchdown.
