The Minnesota Vikings claimed tight end Brandon Bostick after he was waived by the Green Bay Packers on Monday, and coach Mike Zimmer let the press know that he was familiar with Bostick's strengths and weaknesses.

For those who have forgotten, Bostick botched the recovery of a crucial onside kick in the NFC Championship Game against the Seahawks, allowing Seattle to continue its unlikely comeback and head to a second consecutive Super Bowl.

Bostick worked his way up to the Green Bay roster from the practice squad, and spent three years in total with the Packers before being released.
