Free Agent S Tre Boston Should be on the Cowboys Radar

NFL is right around the corner. The will be one of the most interesting teams to watch. They still need to find an anchor on the interior of the , another to combat their at the position, as well as help with multiple players set to hit the market.

The position is another that the Cowboys need to address, which has been the case it seems like forever now. Last , they attempted to fill the hole at with veteran . Unfortunately, he was passed on the by , and eventually second-year stud emerged as the Cowboy's top option opposite . With Woods set to be an unrestricted , the Cowboys need to consider all their options at this offseason, and veteran should be on their radar.

Boston was released last week by the just one season into his three-year, $18 million dollar extension that he signed last March. He had some struggles in coverage but still had one of his best all-around seasons in 2020. He registered a career-high in tackles with 95 and fumble recoveries with two. Also, he added an interception, a forced fumble, and four passes defended.

He's entering his eighth season in the NFL which means he won't command a high salary on the open market and could be signed to a one-year prove to deal much like the aforementioned Clinton-Dix was last offseason.

If the Cowboys were to bring Boston aboard he wouldn't be the long-term solution at free safety, meaning they would still need to address the position in the in April. Prospects such as TCU's , Central Florida's , and Florida State's could be ideal candidates for the Cowboys to bring in to learn under a seasoned veteran like Boston.

Boston has been very reliable throughout his career having only missed eight games since entering the league in 2014. He's not a game-changer by any means, but he would be a solid addition to play opposite Wilson and could mentor not only a rookie safety but the entire Cowboys with his , seeing as he would be the elder statesman of the unit.

The Cowboys aren't known to be big spenders in free agency which makes Boston such an intriguing option.
