Boston is garnering interest from the Browns as an unrestricted free agent, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Boston could fill a notable hole at safety in Cleveland after the team sent Jabrill Peppers to the Giants as part of the blockbuster trade for Odell Beckham. One of the top remaining safeties on the free-agent market, Boston notched 79 tackles, three interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games with the Cardinals last season.
Boston produced 79 tackles (66 solo), three interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 14 games during the 2018 campaign.
Aside from a two-game inactive streak Weeks 7 and 8 due to elbow and shoulder injuries, Boston played at least 89 percent of the snaps on defense in every game but the season finale. The usage translated to the most interceptions and fourth-most tackles among Cardinals defenders but also could result in Boston moving on as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, especially with fellow safeties Budda Baker and Antoine Bethea under contract for the 2019 season.
Boston missed the last two games, but he'll return to his rotational role. Although he's listed as a backup to Antoine Bethea, Boston has logged over 63 defensive snaps in each outing. The fifth-year pro has 40 tackles, seven pass breakups and three interceptions through six games.
Boston (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the 49ers, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
Boston will miss his second consecutive game of the season. The safety didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. In his absence, fellow safety Rudy Ford will likely see an increase in snaps on defense again.
Boston will sit out Thursday Night Football while nursing an elbow injury of undisclosed severity. It remains to be seen whether Boston's injury will require an extended absence, but expect Rudy Ford to see increased defensive snaps as long as Boston remains sidelined.
