Boston Already a Problem?

ProFootballTalk.com wrote:A league source tells us that Dolphins receiver David Boston got into it on Thursday with Miami strength and conditioning coach John Gamble, due to Boston's failure to stick with a plan intended to help him shrink his oversized body.

The story is reminiscent of reports that Boston's tenure with the Chargers began to go downhill after he got into a shouting match with San Diego strength coach Dave Redding -- which was punctuated by Boston telling Redding to "suck my d--k."

The Miami Herald reports merely that a "small rift" is developing between Boston and the team, but the Herald says nothing about the beef between Boston and Gamble. Instead, the Herald points to a shin injury that apparently was caused by Boston's 240-pound girth.

''He's been training. Until he got hurt out here, he hasn't missed a day as far as his running and lifting and stuff," coach Dave Wannstedt said. "He's got five percent body fat. We're not talking about losing fat. It's a matter of toning down the muscle tone, really. It sounds simple, but that's what the situation is. He's too muscled up right now and he doesn't have any fat to lose. It's just a matter of toning down."

The Dolphins acquired Boston from the Chargers earlier this year in a high-risk/high-reward transaction that could either put the team over the top, or drag it to the bottom. As of now, the indications are that Boston could be the anchor that runs these mammals aground.

David Boston

:-# where the hell is Jerry Sullivan? I thought the whole reason Miami picked up DB was because he wanted to be reunited with his old coach and that he promised to toe the line! If I was Jerry, and MY butt could be on the block because I vouched for a headcase bodybuilder, I would be screaming in his face until the weight just dropped out his ass!!!

I'm glad the 'Phins will still have the opportunity to talk to proven veteran WRs like Northcutt and Muhammed...keep your fingers crossed!

I'm not sure but I think Cana left out the top part of this article where both the Dolphins and Boston deny these allegations.

Profootballtalk.com now has on their site.
Loyal readers of this site know that this morning we broke a story about a supposed altercation between WR David Boston of the Fins and Miami strength coach John Gamble. Well -- as usual -- some sources -- including inside sources from the team itself -- are telling us that we are out of our Flipper minds. Per the sources no such altercation occurred - and Gamble and Boston are tight as a pair of 45 lb plates.

Yeah, that was posted the next day, hence its absense from my posting.
