Last season, Tre Boston signed a one-year, “prove-it” deal with the Los Angeles Chargers. The gamble appeared to pay off as Boston provided solid production at the free safety spot.
Unfortunately, the safety market has dried up and he is still without a job.
Typically playing the deep safety role, Boston led the Chargers with five interceptions and was second the squad in tackles, with 79.
Boston isn’t much of a threat in the box, so that may cause an issue playing alongside Evans. There’s no question that Evans is a hard-hitter, but he isn’t consistent enough to be a factor in the running game. Evans also isn’t very big, he plays like it, but he will get overpowered if big tight ends block him.
A true playmaker, Boston will find ways to make opposing quarterbacks pay. His presence also takes pressure off of cornerbacks. Boston has a knack for providing help over the top, helping shut down the deep ball.
At worst, Boston could be solid depth. He is a trustworthy veteran and a leader. He stood out in an up-and-coming Los Angeles defense in 2017.
