Tre Boston On Cardinals, Colts Visits

Tre Boston‘s recent visit to the Cardinals yielded a contract offer. However, it was a “very, very disrespectful” one, according to the safety (Twitter links via SiriusXM). 

The Cardinals “rolled out the red carpet” for Boston late last month, but the end result was a deal that he found insulting. Meanwhile, his visit with the Colts might not have been serious at all.

I didn’t meet with the GM, head coach or defensive coordinator,” Boston said of his visit to Indy. “I was in the lunch room for two hours. I even got to play basketball.”

Like several other veteran safeties, Boston finds himself in limbo this summer. He finds the situation frustrating, to say the least.

It’s kinda rough man, they got us where they think they want us,” Boston said. “For us, we have to communicate with each other so we don’t take this minimum wage.”

The longer things drag on, the more likely it is that Boston and his fellow safeties will have to accept minimum wage deals. Tyvon Branch, Ron Parker, Eric Reid, and Kenny Vaccaro are also among the safeties without contracts as we head into July.

    Is a “very, very disrespectful” offer worse than no contract offer Tre?

      Yes. But then, you must not mind being bent over a barrel by your boss and…

      When did American workers become such humongous, crap-eating, sniveling cowards? Or is it just that America’s middle managers are covering for their own groveling behavior by becoming vicious, hateful tools towards anyone who stands up for themselves or others?

    “For us, we have to communicate with each other so we don’t take this minimum wage.” In other words, we have to collude with one another. There goes any argument on Boston’s part of collusion by NFL teams.

      Yeah, especially when you have ALS or dementia hanging over your shoulder, or a shortening of your life expectancy by a decade or more.

      Go and complain about some corporate honcho making $30 million per year while off-shoring thousands of jobs and still making the shareholders crap, and then I’ll take you seriously.

        They chose to play. Or they could perhaps work at walmart pay check to paycheck.

    When the Honey Bager gets 7mil what can this group expect. He’s better and more versatile then all of them. Boston and Vaccaro should b happy to get 3-5 on a one year deal.

    So glad he’s off the chargers!!! Bye bye Boston! Some other teams fans can watch you run away from tackles now… or get beat badly on a double move…. only to see you intercept some tipped ball, then act like you are gods gift to football with your celebrations. Most overrated safety in the game… that’s why you can’t just trust interceptions and other stats… you have to watch the guy play. He’s a joke.
