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 itā€™s clear this is a defensive back who has a knack for making plays. Thatā€™s why itā€™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. Itā€™s starting to get a little bit late though for remaining free agents especially if youā€™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 wouldnā€™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 theyā€™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. Itā€™ll definitely be worth the risk and he has to be on more than few teamā€™s radars.
