GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers on Monday released tight end Brandon Bostick, who bobbled the onside kick against the Seahawks, a play that allowed Seattle to take a late lead in the NFC Championship game Jan. 18, NFL.com reported.

Bostick was supposed to block the oncoming Seahawks and let wide receiver Jordy Nelson catch and secure the ball. But instead, Bostick tried to haul the ball in and turned it over to the Seahawks.

The Seahawks went on to win the game 28-22.

The 25-year-old Bostick spent the first three seasons of his NFL career with the Packers.
