Brandon Bostick has been working on being a more complete tight end.

A converted receiver, Bostick was talked up by coach Mike McCarthy as the Packers' best blocking tight end earlier this offseason.

Packers TE Brandon Bostick reported to OTAs weighing 270 pounds, more than the team would like.

Bostick broke his foot last December and couldn't condition optimally for most of the offseason. "I have to get my weight under control, come back and my goal is to be the starter," said 25-year-old Bostick, who wants to get down to 6'3/260. A former 230-pound Division-2 wide receiver, Bostick is battling Andrew Quarless and rookie Richard Rodgers for Green Bay's starting tight end job.

Packers TE Brandon Bostick participated in OTAs Tuesday for the first time since December foot surgery.

A former college basketball player dripping with athletic upside, Bostick will now have a chance to climb the depth chart. Jermichael Finley (neck surgery) remains a free agent and Andrew Quarless/Richard Rodgers have "just a guy" kind of ability. Bostick is a stash in Dynasty formats as we wait to see if he he shed a "raw" label.

Brandon Bostick (foot surgery) was not participating in OTAs last week.

Bostick sustained the injury in Week 15 last year. He's expected to be fine for camp, at which point he'll try to emerge from a muddled tight end depth chart. Bostick has the athleticism edge on Andrew Quarless and Richard Rodgers, but needs to improve as a blocker. Bostick's ceiling is likely as a passing-down specialist.

The Packers are "excited" to "take a greater look" at TE Brandon Bostick.

Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless are both free agents. Bostick is rehabbing from a broken foot, but is expected to be ready for the offseason program and needs to be on the radar in all deeper Dynasty leagues. The Newberry College product is going to get a chance to be the Packers' pass-catching tight end of the future.

Packers placed TE Brandon Bostick on injured reserve with a foot injury, ending his season.

Bostick suffered the foot injury in last Sunday's win over Dallas and underwent surgery this week. He ends his second NFL season with just seven catches for 120 yards and a touchdown. Despite his intriguing upside, Bostick was only used in a limited pass-catching role behind Andrew Quarless with Jermichael Finley sidelined. He should be medically cleared in time for the Packers' offseason program.

Packers TE Brandon Bostick is done for the season with a foot injury that will require surgery.

Although he is a potential-ridden prospect, Bostick couldn't fully capitalize on Jermichael Finley's year-ending injury because he's still developing as a player, and especially as a blocker. Bostick's second NFL season ends with seven catches for 120 yards and a touchdown across 11 games (no starts). He'll be worth carrying on Dynasty league rosters into the offseason.
