- According to Ian Rapoport, Boston’s one-year contract with the Cardinals is worth $1.5 million and can increase up to $3 million.
This comes one month after Boston said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that he received a “very, very disrespectful” offer from Arizona, so it appears the two sides reconciled and they were able to make him a suitable offer. (NFLTR)
Boston mentioned during the interview that the market was rough on safeties this year. Back in March, the Cardinals, Raiders, Browns, and Giants all showed initial interest in him, but he didn’t receive the kind of offers he was he was looking for at the time.
The Colts also brought him in for a workout back in May.
Boston, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Panthers back in 2014. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2,625,468 contract when the Panthers cut him last offseason.
Boston later caught on with the Chargers shortly after the 2017 draft and is currently testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2017, Boston appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and recorded 79 tackles, five interceptions and eight pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 30 safety out of 87 qualifying players.
