Former Carolina Panthers safety Tre Boston recently visited both the Los Angeles Chargers and Buffalo Bills. Each of these two teams appear to be in the running for landing the young talent who served in a reserve role before starting 10 games last season in Carolina.
Boston tweeted his appreciation to both organizations and mentioned he would be discussing the move with his family. The former fourth-round pick played his college football for the University of North Carolina prior to becoming a member of the Panthers.
Headed back to CLT, Chargers and Bills definitely made it a tough decision for me! I'll go home and weigh the pros and cons with the Wife.🙏🏾

Boston’s former defensive coordinator, Sean McDermott, is the new coach of the Bills offering some familiarity. However, Los Angeles presents an opportunity to contend as part of what should be an impressive defense with new coordinator Gus Bradley.
The Chargers also provide an opportunity to build a new fan base around a team with a fresh start. Further, the brand new facilities, upon completion, should be some of the best the NFL has to offer.
Seeing his most action last season, Boston recorded career highs in tackles (38), sacks (2) and interceptions (2). Behind the pressure created by NFL rookie of the year Joey Bosa, Boston could see those numbers climb in Los Angeles.
Expect a decision soon from Boston on where he will be taking his expertise for the 2017 season. While Buffalo offers familiarity, if weighing the pros and cons as stated, Boston should be heading west.
