The New Orleans Saints Monday afternoon added more depth to the linebacker room by signing Jon Bostic. The former second-round 2013 draft pick was selected by the Chicago Bears but has bounced around the league, most recently playing for the new Washington Commanders from 2019 to 2021.
In his eight-year career, the 6’1″ 245 lb., linebacker made 557 total tackles (including 105 and 118 in 2019 and 2020), recorded nine-and-a-half sacks, and intercepted three passes. Bostic has played at least 11 games per season until the 2021 season when he only played in four.
Players like Demario Davis locked up his spot and Pete Werner’s spot looks secure, but others like Chase Hansen and Kaden Ellis will be competition for the veteran.
