The Green Bay Packers are going to have a difficult time replacing tight end Jermichael Finley in the lineup, but one player that will likely see an increase in playing time after Finley’s scaring injury this past Sunday is Brandon Bostick.

Undrafted out of Newberry, Bostick was signed to the Packers in 2012 and has played on an extremely limited basis, this year only participating in eleven snaps. That said, Bostick is the best pass catching tight end on the Packers roster and according to ESPN, could find himself replicating some of Jermichael Finley’s famed seam routes thanks to his soft hands:

The Packers probably won’t ask Bostick to do a lot of in-line blocking, but they might try to take advantage of his background as a receiver and perhaps use him on the seam routes that Finley often ran. He comes closest to rivaling Finley in the athleticism department, but he also might be the most raw of the tight ends.

The only other option the Packers have is Andrew Quarless, who has hands made of stone and is mainly an in-line blocking tight end.
