    Redskins' Jon Bostic: Receives first snap

    Jon Bostic took the first snap at inside linebacker at training camp Thursday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.With Washington having cut Mason Foster earlier this week and Reuben Foster (knee) set to miss the entire 2019 season, Bostic has plenty of opportunity before him. The 28-year-old will compete with Shaun Dion Hamilton, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Cole Holcomb for playing time during training camp, and he could conceivably secure a starting job if he impresses. Bostic notched 73 tackles (46 solo), 2.5 sacks and three passes defended across 16 games with the Steelers in 2018.

    Redskins' Jon Bostic: Signs with Washington

    Jon Bostic agreed to a contract with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.The terms of Bostic's deal aren't clear, but he may have come cheap after Pittsburgh just released him one season into a two-year, $4 million pact. The 28-year-old registered 73 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three pass breakups over 16 games last season, but his pace noticeably slipped down the stretch. With Washington, he'll need to fend off Shaun Dion Hamilton and fifth-round rookie Cole Holcolm for snaps next to Mason Foster, but someone needs to fill in for Reuben Foster (knee), who was tapped as the replacement for Zach Brown before suffering a season-ending ACL tear Monday. Brown averaged 112.5 tackles in his two seasons with Washington before leaving in free agency.

    Jon Bostic: Let go by Pittsburgh

    Jon Bostic was released by the Steelers on Saturday.The move isn't overly surprising after the Steelers traded up to draft Devin Bush with the 10th pick during the first round of the draft. Bostic also played a reduced role down the stretch for the Steelers, so it seems as though he fell out of favor with the coaching staff. The veteran linebacker will spend the 2019 season with his at least his fifth different team in the last five years.

    Steelers' Jon Bostic: Quiet finish to solid season

    Jon Bostic failed to record any tackles during Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.After averaging 45 defensive snaps per game the first 11 games of the season, Bostic's playing time took a huge hit, as he averaged just 13 defensive snaps for each of the last five games. This culminated with a season-low six snaps in the season finale. Playing in all 16 games, Bostic finished the 2018 season with 73 tackles -- including 2.5 sacks -- the most he has had in one season over his six-year career. There is no clear explanation for his reduced role during the stretch run, and he'll head into 2019 on the last year of his current contract.

    Steelers' Jon Bostic: Fewest tackles this season

    Jon Bostic had just one tackle during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers.Bostic entered the game leading the Pittsburgh Steelers in tackles, but he managed to record only one all game, and not until the Chargers' final drive at that. With 67 tackles on the season, he still owns a share of the team lead with Vince Williams, but Pittsburgh will need Bostic to bounce back after dropping its second straight game. Week 14 has the Steelers heading to Oakland, where Pittsburgh hasn't won since 1995.

    Steelers' Jon Bostic: Team-high 10 tackles in blowout win

    Jon Bostic led the defense with 10 tackles (six solo) during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.The sixth-year linebacker is earning every penny of the two-year, $4 million contract he signed with Pittsburgh this offseason. He leads the defense with 56 tackles, and he's on pace for a career-best 100 stops this season. Often injured during his career, Bostic has remained healthy thus far this season and will benefit from having 10 days off before taking on the Jaguars in Week 11.
