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

Recommended Posts

I know and think highly of Tre as a person and a player. I think he's great for the city, the locker room and on the field. His stats prove he's worth a decent contract, $5/6 mil+ a year for a 3-4 year deal, maybe more but with them rebuilding probably not. If they don't resign Bradberry having stability in Reid and Tre will be nice and needed. I hope they sign him long term as he will not sign a 1 year deal again, this I do know.

I see his camp is pushing numbers. The fact Hurney wanted him to come back but he hasn’t signed yet says they are at an impasse on a contract.

There's a reason no team in this league has given Tre Boston big money or a lengthy deal.  It's because he's not very good.  That hasn't changed.

That's damning with faint praise. Best on a really bad defense is not really good at all.

Tre is decent in pass coverage, but he's like a bullfighter when it comes to tackling. All he needs is a red cape.

I would rather address the safety position in the draft. This is where we will see who is calling the shots. The Panthers have rarely addressed the safety position in the draft (I can't remember when). If they go safety day 2, then I would say Rhule is calling the shots.

Tre has improved each year since he first left Carolina. I think that leaving put a bad mark on him and has left him on "prove it" deals ever since.

Looking at his performance here last year, I've got to say he was one of the better players on our defense and certainly one of the most unsung ones. Yes, it didn't take much to be one of the better players on that unit, but there were countless times he was still working to make tackles when others had just given up and were half-heartedly jogging. He didn't avoid contact, was aggressive in run stopping and was decent in coverage.

He was a good compliment beside Reid and I think the two guys make a good tandem, and both seemed to carry black marks into those contract issues, marks they didn't really deserve.

Pay the man, somewhere around $5 mill/year for three years and you'll have a stalwart player, a veteran player with plenty of tread left on the tires and a community member who can lead by example and take some of the worry out of the secondary. Let him go and we're searching again, and that's just not something we need to be worrying about if we don't have to.

He's good, pretty darned good, but not great. It's those kinds of players in the right spots that can make a big difference in a team.

He was our best player in the secondary last season and compliments Eric Reid very well, allowing Reid to play in the box.

I would re-sign Boston over Bradberry.

nowhere near close to bradbury

I'd give him another 1-year deal, worth $8 mil like Eric Reid's. But only for 1 year. We have no idea how well he'll fit into Snow's scheme.

I'd rather sign him to a longer term lower paying($5-6 mil) deal than pay him $8 mil for one year. If we keep Cam, cap space is going to be at a premium, despite what the numbers look like currently.

Boston is a good player. Smart and plays well. The problem with him, that many people here are too skeered to admit is that he is a former UNC student athlete and an ambassador for the program. Grow up.

It is painfully obvious that many of the NC$T and dook basketball fans on this forum simply don’t like Tre and claim “HeE SuXCks” because he is a former Tar Heel and reps the program proudly.

Fake News. UNC was exonerated by the NCAA. Don’t like it? Tell it to the judge, pal.

Lol. Just like a recent exoneration, right? It was all fake news?

It's fine, the rest of the world knows that UNC is a dirty cheating program, just like all the other dirty cheating programs.
