NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports free agent Tre Boston is visiting Big Blue today, via a source informed of the situation.
Boston started 13 games last season for the Arizona Cardinals, compiling 79 tackles and three interceptions on a woeful defense. Last offseason, Boston surprisingly garnered little interest in a depressed safety market before landing in Arizona on a one-year contract. He enjoyed a career-year with the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017, displaying an ability to cover in space and step up versus the run.
For a second straight offseason, Boston earned little notice on the free-agent market. His visit with the Giants represents the first sniff we've heard this summer.
The Giants have spent this offseason overhauling their safety spot. New York let Landon Collins walk to Washington this offseason and acquired former first-round pick Jabrill Peppers in the Odell Beckham trade. Peppers and veteran Antoine Bethea -- who Boston played alongside in Arizona last year -- are currently slated as the starting safeties for a Giants squad looking to upgrade depth at the position.
