The Redskins have signed middle linebacker Jon Bostic to fill the void left by Rueben Foster’s ACL tear earlier this week during OTAs.
The 28-year-old was a second-round pick of the Chicago Bears in the 2013 NFL draft after a successful career at the University of Florida.
The Redskins will be the fifth team that Bostic has suited up for and his fourth in as many seasons. Bostic has also played for the Patriots, Colts and most recently the Steelers.
Bostic suited up for all 16 games with the Steelers last season and starting nine games filling in for the injured Ryan Shazier. Bostic recorded 2.5 sacks and 73 tackles for a Steelers team that just missed the playoffs last season.
Throughout his career, Bostic has been a solid second option at middle linebacker for the teams he’s played for. Bostic will likely be the starting middle linebacker so it shouldn’t be a surprise to see him struggle at times but also play like a star in other times.
