Brandon Bostick reportedly drawing trade interest

Jermichael Finley is enjoying the most promising August of his career, but it's another tight end who has teams sniffing around the Green Bay Packers' roster.

With D.J. Williams and Andrew Quarless next on the depth chart behind Finley, teams have begun asking the Packers if former Newberry (S.C.) basketball player Brandon Bostick is available for trade, ESPN's Ed Werder reported Monday.

Bostick began drawing attention with his "eye-opening potential as a downfield weapon" while sequestered on the Packers' practice squad last season.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel advised Packers fans to "keep an eye" on Bostick during the offseason.

As is the case with many hoopsters-turned-tight ends, Bostick remains a work in progress -- especially as a blocker.

Ideally, the Packers would keep him around as an intriguing development project with Finley entering a contract year. If general manager Ted Thompson is feeling a roster squeeze, though, perhaps he could be convinced to accept a late-round pick in return.
