No Word On Boston’s Future

TAMPA – The Bucs aren’t saying much about the incident involving wide receiver David Boston, who was arrested last night and charged with driving under the influence of “something.’’
In fact, they aren’t saying anything at all - at least not publicly. No statement has been released on the matter and one is probably not forthcoming, at least not today.
What that means is Boston will probably go to Miami with the rest of the team. And if the coaches so deem, and chances are they will, he will probably play in tomorrow’s game against the Dolphins.
Beyond that, it’s hard to know what will happen to Boston. Because Boston passed the breath test, the key to his future is going to be the result of the urine test he took.
If that test comes back clean, Boston figures to be good to go. If it doesn’t, Boston could be looking at a four-game suspension, which would be his second since first coming to the NFL in 1999.
Boston’s first suspension came in 2004 after he was found to be in violation of the league’s steroid policy. Boston appealed the suspension, saying he did not take anabolic steroids, but the suspension stuck.
Nor was this Boston’s first brush with the law. Also in 2004 he was charged with simple assault in Burlington, Vt., for striking a ticket agent at an airport. He pled no contest in that incident.
Boston, of course, is trying to make a comeback after missing the previous two seasons. He missed the 2005 season because of knee problems and sat out last year after being cut by the Bucs on the eve of the season opener.
He has been one of the more impressive players in the Bucs camp this preseason, but this incident could hurt or ultimately destroy his chances of making the team.
