The Detroit Lions have acquired linebacker Jon Bostic from the New England Patriots, the team announced Monday.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reports that the deal, which is reportedly for a conditional seventh round selection, is the first one made between Lions general manager Bob Quinn and his former team.
Bostic, 25, spent the 2015 season with the Patriots, for whom he played in 11 games and recorded two tackles. He previously spent two seasons with the Chicago Bears, accumulating 140 tackles and two sacks in 29 games.
Bostic was a second-round selection by the Bears in the 2013 NFL draft out of Florida.
He was a second-team All-SEC selection with the Gators in 2012.
