The 6-foor-3, 250-pound tight end was waived by Green Bay on Monday, about a month after his mistake on an onside kick allowed the Seahawks to come back and win the NFC Championship Game. Bostick spent two seasons with the Packers and registered nine catches for 123 yards and two touchdowns. With the addition of Bostick, the Vikings now have five tight ends on the active roster (Kyle Rudolph, Rhett Ellison, Chase Ford, Ryan Otten).
With the Packers leading 19-14 just before the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter, the Seahawks lined up for an onside kick. Bostick left his blocking assignment and attempted to recover the ball. The ball bounced off his hands, and the Seahawks recovered. The recovery led to a go-ahead score, and Seattle would eventually punch a ticket to the Super Bowl in overtime.
"I let my team down, I feel like," Bostick said. "There was a lot on this game. I just feel like if I was able to do my job - my assignment was to block - Jordy would've caught the ball and the game would've been over."
When the ball was kicked, Bostick popped up and tried to make a play on the ball, only to have it bounce off of his hands and into a Seahawks' arms.
"I felt like I had my hands on the ball," Bostick said. "It just slipped away, I guess. I just got hit and didn't have the ball."
