Free agent safeties have not been a popular item for teams shopping for players this offseason, but a couple of them are getting a look from the Colts on Monday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Colts are meeting with Tre Boston and Kenny Vaccaro. Vaccaro visited the Dolphins last month, but the market has been otherwise quiet for both of them.

Boston had 79 tackles and five interceptions for the Chargers last season. It was his only season with the Chargers, who signed Boston after he was waived by the Panthers last May. Vaccaro, the 15th pick in the 2013 draft, had 60 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions in his fifth season with the Saints.

The Colts took Malik Hooker in the first round of the 2017 draft and is recovering from a torn ACL. Boston or Vaccaro would give them an experienced partner for the second-year player or some insurance in the event he’s not ready to go in September.

  1. If the Colts don’t offer either of these two a contract is it because of collusion? I’m sure it would be if they brought in Eric Reid and didn’t offer him a contract. I’m sure the next article will be that it’s collusion because they didn’t even take a look at Eric Reid. In other words, no matter what happens Eric Reid will claim that they are colluding against him. The fact is teams are tired of his act and don’t want the circus sideshow any more than if they were to bring in Tim Tebow. Frankly, I’d rather deal with it if it were Tebow. At least he’s a nice guy.

  2. Sign them both. That way you have insurance if Hooker isn’t ready day 1 and so he won’t have to be/feel rushed back. Then, whenever he is ready, whether it’s week 1 or week 8…you have depth and both the new guys have been immersed in the system. I know Indy has the cap space.
