Stephen Thompson, of The Tampa Tribune, reports free-agent WR David Boston (Buccaneers) pleaded no contest Wednesday, April 16, to a charge of reckless driving.

Buccaneers | Team may receive phone calls about excess WRs

Mon, 21 Aug 2006 05:47:21 -0700

The St. Petersburg Times reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a plethora of wide receivers, and that likely will spark the interest of teams looking to add depth at the position. "Certain teams call you to see what you think about this, or you call them to see what they think," head coach Jon Gruden said. "That's part of your job. I don't want to start any speculation because that's all it is. But every team in this league engages in those conversations, trying to improve their football team." Midway through the preseason, it doesn't appear that the decisions at receiver have gotten any easier. "It will be a tough call for us," Gruden said. "I just hope all of it works out for all of these guys." WRs Edell Shepherd, David Boston and Paris Warren are reportedly on the roster bubble.

Buccaneers | Boston looking forward to competing

Sun, 09 Jul 2006 06:19:50 -0700

Stephen F. Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR David Boston is looking forward to competing for a roster spot in training camp. After largely forgettable, injury-plagued seasons with the Dolphins the past two years, Boston is quickly working himself back into form and figures to spice up the competition in camp if he can recapture his signature speed and power. "I feel good," Boston said recently. "I'm just out there running around. It's great to be able to go out there and run around without any pain so I can compete. I love to compete. I'm getting a chance to show my athletic ability right now." Head coach Jon Gruden and his staff, despite not saying much publicly, have high hopes for Boston. If he can truly work his way back, he has the potential to add a little sizzle to an offense in need of every spark it can get. For now, Boston continues to work diligently to pick up the Bucs' ultra-technical offense.

Buccaneers | Team has some cutting to do at wide receiver

Tue, 04 Jul 2006 08:54:30 -0700

Buccaneers.com reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently have 14 wide receivers on their roster. The team normally carries six wide receivers so they have some cutting to do if they are going to maintain six for the 2006 season. Clearly, WRs Joey Galloway and Michael Clayton are good bets to earn spots. WRs David Boston and Ike Hilliard are the most experienced of the rest. Three of the candidates as of late June are 2005 draftees, WRs Larry Brackins, Paris Warren and J.R. Russell, which means the Bucs are looking forward to taking another extended look at them. WR Edell Shepherd remains an intriguing receiver for the team. The rest of the wide receivers are free agent additions and first-year players.

He and WR Michael Clayton both are getting themselves rounded back into playing shape and speed. If they can do that, they'll help our team."

Buccaneers | Boston says he's healed on all fronts

Fri, 26 May 2006 05:47:57 -0700

Stephen F. Holder, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR David Boston (knee) said he is driven to be the player he was once was. Less than 24 hours after completing a deal with the Buccaneers, Boston participated in the team's voluntary workout at Raymond James Stadium Thursday, May 25. He immediately returned to One Buc Place, where he began a series of calisthenics followed by a meeting with his position coach. "When you've gone out and had success in the league, you know what it's like and how hard you need to work and how hungry you were when you were doing it," said Boston, who was selected to the Pro Bowl after a career year in 2001. "I've never forgotten that. It sets a standard." Boston said his knee is about 90 percent healed, so, to be safe, he will take only a limited number of reps, 15 to 20 each workout for now.

Buccaneers | Simms excited about Boston addition

Fri, 26 May 2006 05:43:02 -0700

Roy Cummings, of the Tampa Tribune, reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Chris Simms is excited about the addition of WR David Boston to the team. "It's great to have him here," Simms said of Boston, who signed a free agent contract with the Bucs Wednesday, May 24. "It definitely gives us another downfield threat. I mean, if you put Joey (Galloway) on one side and David Boston on the other, it's going to make defenses think about who they want to cheat their safeties to in coverage. We really have a lot of speed at receiver now." In reality, though, it is way too soon to suggest that Boston will provide the Bucs with a deep threat to complement Galloway.
