Ravens reportedly work out another former Steelers linebacker, Jon Bostic
Four months after signing Matthew Thomas, the Baltimore Ravens are reportedly kicking the tires on another former Pittsburgh Steelers inside linebacker.
Jon Bostic was brought in for a workout, presumably with the intention to consider signing him, The Athletic reported Friday.
Sounds like ILB Jon Bostic, who started 14 games with Steelers last year, is working out for Ravens along w/few others. Not sure anything is imminent along that front. But Ravens clearly looking to add to ILB depth. Probably their thinnest position at this pt.

A six-year NFL veteran who has started at least one game every season since he was drafted in the second round by the Chicago Bears in 2013, Bostic started 14 games last season for the Steelers. But the Steelers cut him after the draft when they traded up to take inside linebacker Devin Bush at No. 10 overall – a move that came six weeks after the Steelers signed inside linebacker Mark Barron to a two-year, $12 million free-agent contract.

Bostic’s playing time in the Steelers’ defense gradually declined all season. The Steelers were his fifth team.
The Ravens also earlier this week signed offensive lineman R.J. Prince, days after the Steelers released him.
