Steelers Release LB Jon Bostic


The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Saturday that they’ve released LB Jon Bostic

This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, given that the Steelers traded up into the top 10 picks for Devin Bush.

Bostic, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Bears 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.

However, the Patriots elected to trade Bostic to the Lions for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2017. Bostic played out the final year of his four-year, $3.941 million rookie contract before the Colts signed him to a one-year contract. 

From there, Bostic agreed to a two-year contract with the Steelers last year. 

In 2018, Bostic appeared in all 16 games for the Steelers and recorded 73 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and three pass defenses.
