One of the more underrated safeties in the NFL continues to be Tre Boston, who spent 2018 with the Arizona Cardinals and is looking for a home for the third season in a row. Originally taken in the fourth round back in 2014, the North Carolina product spent his first three years with the Carolina Panthers.
After developing into their starter at free safety, the Panthers unexpectedly waived him. He then headed across the country and signed a one-year deal with the Los Angles Chargers where he again was a starting safety.
While playing for the Bolts, Boston had his best campaign as he was credited with 79 tackles, eight pass deflections, and five interceptions. He was then ready to cash in as a free agent — but found the market to be incredibly lukewarm.
It took until July for him to find a home as he signed a one-year deal worth just $1.5 million with the Cardinals. While playing for them, he moved to strong safety and continued to have success. He matched his career high in tackles (79) and added another three interceptions.
With another strong season under his belt, Boston is once again looking for a long-term deal. While players like Eric Weddle, Landon Collins, Earl Thomas, Adrian Amos, and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have all found homes, Boston is once again waiting.
He has the versatility to play either safety position and would be a great fit for the Browns opposite Damarious Randall. He’s arguably the best option in the open market, but for some reason, things seem to be moving slow around him again.
