“I know I’m worth every dollar those guys are getting paid,” Boston said. “The stats say it, you can’t say it’s not, but, for me, it’s about being at peace with where I’m at. Even though the stats say I might be there, if they’re not paying me that then I will wait until it comes a time where I need to sign and they feel comfortable that I’m worth that.”
Boston added that he’s trying to get teams to “stop playing games” with him.
“I’ve led my past two teams in interceptions…who doesn’t want a guy like that? It’s all about trying to get them [teams] to stop playing games,” Boston said.
The market has been surprisingly slow-moving for Boston, who is clearly among the best available free agents.
Back in March, the Browns and Raiders had come up as potential options, but there hasn’t been any recent buzz about him landing with either team.
Boston, 26, 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 in 2017.
Boston later caught on with the Chargers shortly after the 2017 draft and agreed to a one-year contract with the Cardinals last summer.
In 2018, Boston appeared in 14 games for the Cardinals and recorded 79 tackles, three interceptions, a forced fumble and nine pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 24 safety out of 93 qualifying players.
