NFC South Notes: Falcons, Panthers, Saints



Free agent S Tre Boston told the Charlotte Observer on Monday that he has no idea why he hasn’t been signed yet.

I have no idea. But if I told you there’s a 25-year-old out there, no nagging injuries, no off-field issues, 10 career picks (actually eight), 180 tackles-plus, three sacks (two), what would you tell me?” Boston said.

I don’t know. I can’t say what upstairs is thinking. But I know I have the stats and the numbers to play with the best of them. So for me it’s just being patient. Things are gonna happen.

Boston mentioned that he spoke to the Panthers about the possibility of returning to Carolina, but it’s clear to him that they don’t value defensive backs as much as other teams.

“Knowing how they do business, they’re a big front-seven team. Don’t put a lot of value into the DBs,” Boston said. “It’s just what they’ve done over the years. They kind of want to stick with that and I respected that.”
