Panthers fielded calls about safety Tre Boston

AP

The Panthers signed a veteran free agent safety to replace Tre Boston in the starting lineup, but they’re apparently not ready to give up on Boston.

According to Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, at least one team called to see if Boston was available in trade. He’s still on the roster, so presumably he’s not, at least for whatever terms were discussed.

The team or teams weren’t identified, but it’s reasonable to suspect Buffalo might have been interested, since coach Sean McDermott knows Boston well from his time as the Panthers defensive coordinator.

Boston’s a former fourth-round pick, and has range, but his inconsistency forced the Panthers into the veteran free agent market, where they found Mike Adams.

And they’ve already given up on one member of their 2014 class, sending second-rounder Kony Ealy to New England.

    He’s just like Ealy – when he’s coming off the bench, he does well, then when he’s put in the starting lineup, he goes into neutral mentally. Once we signed Adams, I kept expecting to hear we had traded Boston to New England for a 2025 7th round pick.

    This dudes is a liability in coverage. Takes poor tackle angles, and is slow to react.

    Good luck whoever scoops him up (probably Buffalo)

    I would trade Boston and about 5 more. With Dean Marlowe, Colin Jones, Kurt Coleman and signing Mike Adams on the roster plus others. Then add Gettleman’s 3 year rule he is done.
