If Brandon Bostick's 23-yard catch and run in the second quarter of the Green Bay Packers' Saturday preseason opener at the Tennessee Titans looked familiar, there's a reason.

Roll video from last season's Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins, and you'll see the same route out of the same formation for almost the identical result on an early third-quarter play.

Except that it was not Bostick on that September day.

It was Jermichael Finley. And it was vintage No. 88.

Finley lined up tight to the line of scrimmage on the left, ran to the flat and spun his head around to take Aaron Rodgers' short pass just a yard off the line of scrimmage. He broke one tackle and then a second and a third before the Redskins got him to the ground 27 yards later down the left sideline.

So there was Bostick on Saturday against the Titans, lined up in the same spot. Just like Finley did, Bostick took a short pass in the flat -- this one from Matt Flynn -- turned up the field and broke at least two tackles before the Titans brought him down.

"I'm trying to at least mimic or give them at least some of what Jermichael did," Bostick said. "I'm not trying to be Jermichael 2.0, but at the same time make the plays that Jermichael did."

Bostick might be the Packers' closest approximation to Finley, whose career remains in limbo while he hopes for medical clearance -- and a contract offer -- to return from the neck injury that ended his 2013 season.
