Redskins Sign ILB Bostic

Recommended Posts

Jon Bostic,a solid ILB considering we need someone who can contribute.  Should definitely make the team.

Boom! Hopefully he does enough to make Mason expendable. 

He was better than average last year in Pitt, but they chose to trade up and draft Devin Bush instead of retaining Bostic.

He seems like a solid veteran pick up and I hope he does well.

He's pretty slow.  Honestly I would be surprised if he makes the roster, we already have a guy like him in Mason Foster.

Pretty much what I thought . He's been on what - four or five teams mostly as a back up/ sometimes starter .

It's what's available at this time of the year. They wanted someone who they could conceivably plug in right away but at the same time are hoping gets beat out for the job by one of the young guys.

I understand that ! The first few comments sounded like we'd signed **** Butkus :P

Darn, system wiped out his first name . Also a name for male genitalia -Big Brother !

4.61 forty time, certainly not a blazer but not exactly slow either for a Mike LB. Mason Foster’s 40-time is 4.75 by comparison...

He has experience in multiple systems in the NFL and has worked under some great coaches. He’s no pro bowler but as Woz said it’s May, there aren’t going to be any pro bowlers available. He’s a reliable vet. 

He started 14 games for Indy in 2017 and 14 games for the Steelers last year.

I don’t know what people are crying about... they’re making a mountain out of a mole hill.

He’s started 28 games the last two seasons. It’s not like we’re re-signing Zach Vigil or Will Compton.

I don’t see one post where someone is saying he’s a pro bowler let alone comparing him to a Hall of Famer.

Saying he’s been a solid vet LB or he was above average the last two years is far from calling him a great player.

Probably the best option out there. Its way better than freakin Will Compton. I think this is a solid signing. He's actually decent in pass coverage and can shed blocks fairly well. He is a bit slow, but that dont mean he cant play defense.
