The Green Bay Packers released tight end Brandon Bostick on Monday. This move came less than a month after Green Bay’s heart-breaking loss to Seattle in the NFC Championship game.

Packers fans remember Bostick as the player who botched the onside kick in that championship game, allowing the Seahawks to recover the ball and score a go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Bostick issued the following statements on his Twitter account:

Hopefully for Bostick, another team will pick him up. He deserves a chance to put this blunder behind him. At only 25 years of age, he could be a promising talent for any team in need of a blocking tight end.
