Redskins' Jon Bostic: Logs five tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic was credited with five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

After seven straight weeks of seven or more tackles, Bostic's numbers have been a bit down of late. He has no more than five tackles in three of his last five contests and no more than seven in any game during that stretch.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Intercepts pass in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic recorded seven tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Jets.

It was Bostic's first interception of the season and just the second of his six-year career. With 72 tackles on the season, the Florida product needs just two more to pass last year's total.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Records sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic had nine tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Thursday's 19-9 loss to the Vikings.

Bostic tied his second-highest tackle total of the season while also recording his first sack of the year. The 27-year-old ranks second on the team with 60 tackles (34 solo) through eight games.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Stacks up eight stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic made eight tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Dolphins.

Bostic and Cole Holcomb are tied for second among the Redskins with 44 tackles this season, trailing only Landon Collins. He continues to get a large snap share, so he'll look to keep it going in Week 7 against the 49ers.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Reaches double-digit tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic had 11 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Bostic played all but six defensive snaps Sunday and has come on strong the last few weeks after recording only two assisted tackles in the season opener. The 28-year-old has 29 tackles (13 solo) through four games, which ranks second behind Landon Collins on the Redskins' defense.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Nine tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic recorded nine tackles (five solo) across 66 defensive snaps in Monday's loss to the Bears.

Bostic fared well against his former team, as he was second on the team in tackles. He now has 18 tackles on the season, playing in just about 90 percent of the team's defensive snaps.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Calling plays on defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic is calling plays for the Washington defense, John Keim of reports.

The Redskins signed Bostic in late May, shortly after Reuben Foster suffered a season-ending knee injury. The team then cut Mason Foster in July, leaving Bostic to compete with a bunch of young players -- Shaun Dion Hamilton (chest), Josh Harvey-Clemons, Cole Holcomb -- for snaps at inside linebacker. The 28-year-old didn't take long to lock down a starting job, with his role as the defensive play caller hinting at a three-down workload to come. Bostic thus has an opportunity for his first pro season with triple-digit tackles, following a 2018 campaign in Pittsburgh with 73 tackles across 560 defensive snaps and 145 special teams snaps.

Redskins' Jon Bostic: Receives first snap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic agreed to a contract with the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic had just one tackle during Sunday's 33-30 loss to the Chargers.

Bostic entered the game leading the 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: Adds to team lead in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic totaled six tackles (two solo) during the Steelers' 20-16 win against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Bostic leads the defense with 62 tackles through 10 games and will look to add to that total in Week 12 against the Broncos. In their last meeting, the Steelers lost a 2015 playoff game 23-16, although both teams looked quite different than those that will take the field this time.

Steelers' Jon Bostic: Team-high 10 tackles in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Steelers' Jon Bostic: Adds to team lead in tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic recorded five tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 23-16 win over Baltimore.

Bostic leads the defense with 46 tackles this season, and the Steelers are on a four-game winning streak, but the defense has managed just two takeaways during that stretch. It won't be any easier on a short week, facing a Panthers team that has turned the ball over just eight times all season.

Steelers' Jon Bostic: Leads team with six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic recorded six tackles (all solo) including a sack in Monday's 30-27 win over the Buccaneers.

In just his third game as a Steeler, Bostic has already matched his career high with two sacks and leads the team with 21 tackles. The defense has 11 sacks through three games, second only to Chicago and is on pace for 58 on the year. They'll look to add to that total against Baltimore in Week 4.

Steelers' Jon Bostic: One sack against Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic recorded eight tackles (four solo), including a sack in Sunday's 21-21 tie against the Browns.

Playing in his first game as a Steeler, Bostic made an immediate impact, and has already matched his sack total from last season. He'll look to add to it against the Chiefs in Week 2.

Steelers' Jon Bostic: Says he is healthy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic (knee) said he is healthy and doesn't believe his previous medical issues are chronic, Jacob Klinger of reports.

Bostic has missed 26 games since entering the NFL as a second-round pick in 2013, limited by a mixture of hip, ankle and knee injuries. He spent the final two weeks of last season on injured reserve with a knee sprain, but he believes he could've played in Week 17 if the Colts had allowed it. Bostic finished the year with a career-high 97 tackles in 14 games, though his stat line otherwise consisted of just one sack, one fumble recovery and three pass breakups. He's had a hand in only three turnovers and three sacks throughout his career, displaying little in the way of playmaking ability. He figures to compete with Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) for a starting inside linebacker job next to Vince Williams, as the Steelers already have ruled Ryan Shazier (neck) out for the season. The team hopes to have both Bostic and Matakevich healthy for the start of the offseason program in mid-April.

Jon Bostic: Signing with Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic (knee) is signing a two-year contract with the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Ryan Shazier (spine) already ruled out for the upcoming season, Pittsburgh has a glaring need at inside linebacker alongside incumbent 16-game starter Vince Williams. A 2013 second-round pick, Bostic has never quite lived up to his draft status, although he did pile up 97 tackles in 14 games while handling a three-down role for the Colts last season. He may need to compete with Tyler Matakevich (shoulder) -- and possibly another free agent or draft pick -- for the starting job. The oft-injured Bostic finished last season on IR due to a knee injury of unknown severity.

Colts' Jon Bostic: Season ends prematurely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bostic (knee) was placed on injury reserve by the Colts on Monday, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News reports.

Bostic suffered the injury in last Thursday's loss to the Broncos, and while the specifics remain relatively unknown, his 2017 season has come to an end. Anthony Walker and Jermaine Grace are set for increased workloads at inside linebacker over the final two weeks of the season.
