Former Los Angeles Chargers Free Safety Tre Boston finally put together his best season as a pro a year ago. Boston went from a middle of the road player to a guy who is feared by opposing offenses. With 5 interceptions, 8 passes defended, and 79 tackles it’s clear this is a defensive back who has a knack for making plays. That’s why it’s hard to believe nobody has signed Boston to a deal yet. Now maybe Tre Boston is trying to get out of offseason workouts and is taking it slow when it comes to signing his next contract. It’s starting to get a little bit late though for remaining free agents especially if you’re going to a new team and have to learn a new playbook. One team that could be in the market for a ball hawk like Tre Boston is the San Francisco 49ers. They have $45M in cap space to make the deal happen and General Manager John Lynch knows how important the safety position can be. Right now the Niners are rolling with a former 7th rounder (Adrian Colbert) as their starting free safety and Boston would be a significant upgrade. Why wouldn’t Kyle Shanahan take a chance on a guy who could produce five turnovers a year for his defense? That can be the difference between winning and losing close games and it just makes sense with everything they’re trying to do in the Bay Area. The biggest problem for Tre Boston is regardless of where he signs, he may have to take a low ball offer. Teams will want Boston to prove himself again before they make a serious commitment to him. The good news is if someone does makes a push for the 26 year old (Boston) then they can snag a safety whose game is trending upward. It’ll definitely be worth the risk and he has to be on more than few team’s radars.

Tre Boston one of the league’s best defensive backs a year ago. Even though he’s still unsigned.
