Carolina Panthers cut veteran safety Tre Boston

The Carolina Panthers cut ties with a 10-game starter form 2016.

The team announced it waived safety Tre Boston on Tuesday.

Boston, a fourth-round pick in 2014, earned double-digit starts for the first time in his career last season, compiling 53 tackles, two interceptions, two sacks and seven passes defended. Boston was given a chance to hang onto the starting gig last season, but didn't progress as a consistent backstop and was reportedly shopped in trade talks this offseason.

Parting ways with the 24-year-old Boston comes after Carolina added veteran safety Mike Adams in free agency.

The Panthers also cut offensive tackles Jake Rodgers and Jordan Rigsbee, fullback Devon Johnson, and cornerback Lou Young.
