A few hours ago in this same space, I wrote that the Chicago Bears fire sale has started. Looks like I was correct. As most people were finishing their dinner tonight, the Bears traded former second round pick Jon Bostic to the New England Patriots for a sixth round draft pick. Bostic was drafted by the Bears in 2013 to be the heir apparent to Lance Briggs out of Florida. Bostic at times played well but unfortunately the best thing he known for in his few years with the Bears were a few bonecrushing hits over the middle in the preseason. In his first two seasons, Bostic played in 29 games, compiling 140 combined tackles, two sacks and one interception. Bostic has yet to play a down this year. He missed the preseason with a back injury and the last few weeks with an ankle injury. Trading Jon Bostic clears $358,254 from the #Bears 2015 cap, & $942,381 from their 2016 cap as the Patriots appear to be unhappy with Jerrod Mayo.
