The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seen enough of wide out David Boston, as they cut him on Wednesday. Boston was facing a DUI charge, and two days ago police released results of a urine test that showed he had a depressant in his system when he was arrested and charged last month. Police stated that Boston Monday had a positive reading for GHB in his system, and it was verified by a second lab.
Boston, who never has taken the blame for anything he has ever done, last week came out and said he did nothing wrong and even said he was not under the influence when he was arrested. He didn’t play in the Bucs loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, as he hurt his foot in pregame warmups. He reached an injury settlement with the Bucs, who then signed WR/kick returner Mark Jones to take Boston’s place on the roster.
The over-hyped Boston has been always been more bark than bite, and has shown flashes in his career but never has been able to live up to potential. His best season was in 2001, when with the Cardinals he caught 98 passes for 1598 yards and 8 touchdowns. Since that season, he has played in just 27 games, catching a total of 106 passes for 1472 yards and 8 TD’s. Many have felt the former Ohio State wide out put on too much weight in his upper body over the years, which has caused him to have numerous injuries.
