Safety Tre Boston lined up three visits with teams recently as he looked for a spot to continue his career following his release from the Panthers and it seems he’s found it.

Boston spent time with the Steelers, Bills and Chargers and said in a tweet on Friday that all three meetings went well. He followed that up with another one indicating that he’s decided to sign with the Chargers for the 2017 season.

Boston, a 2014 fourth-round pick, started 10 games for the Panthers last season and finished the year with 53 tackles and two interceptions. The Chargers have safeties Jahleel Addae and Dwight Lowery back from last season and drafted Rayshawn Jenkins and Desmond King, who is expected to move from cornerback in college to safety in the pros, last month.

    Maybe God has a higher purpose for him in LA, I can’t pretend to know that. But I have to think choosing LA over Buffalo, had something to do with the Beach versus lake effect snow.

    Cap hell can be ugly, folks.

    He was just drafted in 2014.

    Panthers are not in cap hell Boston was just never consistent. Kept looking for the big hit and would be out of position or miss. But when he connected he laid the wood.

    Nice hopefully the secondary (safeties) can play at a higher level this year!

    I was hoping he might replace Mitchell.

    So … the Chargers sign Lowery last year, after letting go perennial Pro Bowler Eric Weddle.

    Then they sign Addae to a 3 year extension this year.

    Then they draft two safeties.

    Then they sign a free agent safety.

    I’m not even going to pretend I understand what the Chargers are thinking about.

    He will need it.

    Nothing against the guy for most of us Panther fans. He has talent, but just wasn’t able to put it all together. I hope he finds success with the Chargers.

    That is a football team, not a soccer team, right?
