PFF: Tre Boston will cost 3 YRS – $8M AVG/YR

Recommended Posts

DEAL: S TRE BOSTON (3 YRS – $8M AVG/YR)

$12m guaranteed, $24m total

What is the deal with Boston not getting paid? Over the last three seasons, he ranks second in coverage grade among safeties and has played the fifth-most snaps of any safety in the NFL. Boston's 27 combined pass breakups and interceptions over those three seasons are fewer than only Kevin Byard, yet, the guy's last three contracts after his rookie deal have been three straight one-year deals, each worth less than $2.5 million. It just doesn't add up.

He has shown the coverage ability and instincts — like on the play above — to be a high-level player at one of the league's most important positions, but he hasn't been able to lock down a long-term deal at a reasonable salary to this point. Even three years, $24 million seems like a steal for opposing teams needing a free safety. Get this man the money he deserves, NFL.

He is a good safety and has been for a while.  I would pay him to be honest. Only 27.

I've never seen a guy try so hard to tackle opposing players with his butt

I feel like on one hand this article should be a light bulb for PFF to revaluate their grading system in light of it's obvious disconnect with how it values Boston vs NFL teams willingness to pay him, but then there's a thorn in the side of that view. They point out something that has nothing to do with their grade. No matter what you think of PFF or even Boston, objectively speaking for the guy who has the second most combined INT's and pass breakups over the last 3 seasons to be unable to secure any kind of market rate multi year deal is weird, especially since Boston has no off field issues and I think is generally regarded as a locker room positive.

Before reading this post I neither liked nor disliked Boston. Considered him serviceable and to have improved since his early years with us. Is there some huge weakness in his game that PFF is overlooking? Because they kind of seem to have a point on the face of it.

The overall safety market has been a little depressed during the last 2-3 years, I think that has a lot to do with it. Other than that, there is obviously something that is keeping him as a journeyman and not locked down to a longer term contract.

This is true and we don't know what the real numbers will come in at but Boston is a good free safety and those don't grow on trees.  Wouldn’t over pay but would pay his worth for his services.

Good point about the safety market, they are kinda dime a dozen. Still, as someone who has neither strong opinions one way or the other about him, I do admit it's kind of weird he can't seem to earn any kind of decent deal. Given his stats, he should at least be able to get himself a multi year contract and a little stability even if it's not anything bank breaking, I would think. Makes me wonder if there's something behind the scenes, cause it's not just the Panthers, there's 32 teams yawning at Tre Boston.
