Draft Scout Jon Bostic News
12/12/13 - LB Jon Bostic and LB Khaseem Greene both have been guilty of overrunning plays at times, resulting in what has looked like poor fits for the run defense. According to coordinator Mel Tucker, the Bears have corrected the problem and are worrying more about simply being physical.
"We're to the point now where we pretty much where we need to be. Now, it's about finishing," he said.
11/14/13 - LB Jonathan Bostic produced his first career interception Sunday to set up a field goal, and apparently that wasn't all he did right. "I thought Jonathan had his best game, myself, in terms of his physicality in terms of running from sideline to sideline," coach Marc Trestman said.
08/21/13 - LB Jon Bostic received a $21,000 fine on Wednesday for lowering his head while hitting San Diego Chargers wide receiver Mike Willie in a preseason game last Thursday.
Bostic hit Willie in the chest area on a short pass in the Bears' 33-28 win. The force of the blow caused Willie to drop the ball. No penalty was called.
Teammate and fellow Bears linebacker Lance Briggs confirmed the news Wednesday morning when he tweeted, "Bostic's hit illegal. Hit on Dustin Keller. Legal."
Keller, a tight end for the Miami Dolphins, is out for the season after suffering a knee injury on a low hit that the NFL considers legal by Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger in a preseason game last weekend.
Bostic took over as the Bears' No. 1 middle linebacker after D.J. Williams sustained a calf injury early in training camp. He has a $405,000 base salary this season.
Bostic will have the option to appeal the fine.
05/08/13 - LB Jonathan Bostic agreed to a four-year contract with the Bears Thursday.
Bostic is a candidate to fill the void at linebacker created when the franchise decided to break off contract talks with veteran mainstay Brian Urlacher.
Bostic and former Denver Broncos' inside linebacker D.J. Williams are the primary competitors to start at middle linebacker in 2013.
The 50th overall pick in the 2013 draft, Bostic is the fifth of the Bears' six draft choices to agree to contract terms.
He had 237 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks and five interceptions at Florida.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Bears' picks: Round 2/50 - Jonathan Bostic, LB, 6-1, 245, Florida...Bears believe he has the versatility to play all three linebacker positions. Started Gators career on the weak side but made all 32 of his starts at middle linebacker. Above-average agility and speed. Ran 4.61 40-yard dash and 4.24 20-yard shuttle. Plays with more finesse than brute strength and is more flashy than consistent. Father, Jon Bostic, was a defensive back for the Lions from 1985-87. - The Sports Xchange
