Mar. 12 - The Dolphins reportedly have moved closer to sealing a deal to acquire volatile receiver Boston from the Chargers, who want to move him before Monday, when he's due a $3 million roster bonus. Miami is Boston's first choice because he would be reunited with Dolphins receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, with whom Boston worked in Arizona.
Tampa Bay GM Bruce Allen told the Tampa Tribune, "We are not a player in the David Boston sweepstakes." He was referring to a report in the Orlando Sentinel on Thursday that indicated the Bucs had inquired about Boston's availability. Other teams said to be interested are the Raiders, 49ers and Ravens.
If the Chargers can't trade Boston or re-work the seven-year, $47 million contract he signed a year ago by Monday, they could release him.
