Steelers host safety Tre Boston to free agent visit

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers are still looking at potential free agents, and the most recent visit was safety Tre Boston.

Despite the majority of NFL Free Agency and the 2017 NFL Draft concluded, there are still players available for the taking. One of those players was former Carolina Panthers safety Tre Boston.

Boston took to his official Twitter account to state he visited the Pittsburgh Steelers recently on a free agent visit.

Boston, who clearly left the team facility without a contract, is headed to Los Angeles to visit the Chargers, then to the Buffalo Bills.

Boston played three seasons for the Panthers, with 2016 being his most prolific season. He started 10 games, a career high, and was able to tally two interceptions, two sacks and seven pass defenses throughout the campaign.

If the Steelers choose to bring in Boston, he would be needed depth at the safety position, and would likely compete with Robert Golden and Jordan Dangerfield for a spot as a backup behind both Mike Mitchell and Sean Davis.

Clearly, Boston is making his rounds to see which team is the best fit, and it may just come down to the highest bidder, which is rarely the Steelers. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on this story and everything else surrounding the black and gold.
