TAMPA, Fla. (May 24, 2006) -- Receiver David Boston, who has missed most of the past two seasons, signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Boston, a Pro Bowl selection in 2001 when he had 98 receptions for the Arizona Cardinals, was limited to five games over the past two years with the Miami Dolphins because of injuries.

All five of those games came in 2005, when he caught four passes for 80 yards before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.

A first-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 1999, Boston has 315 career catches for 4,699 yards and 25 touchdowns in seven seasons with Arizona, San Diego and Miami.

The Bucs also announced that receiver B.J. Johnson was released.

I think if he puts on a few more pounds of muscle he'll be an elite receiver!

He was a great college receiver, though...just goes to show that it doesn't always translate...

This is what happens when you aren't satisfied with being an elite NFL receiver and throw that away for bodybuilding and who knows what type of supplements.

He apparently still has awesome speed, but his knees are gone. If the season were one game long a year, he could play. As it is, I expect the Bucs to get one long TD out of him before he's out for the season.

I don't think Boston is a good example of great college receiver who didn't translate to the NFL. He was a Pro Bowler at receiver. For my money, that guy is still Desmond Howard. He found his place as a kick returner and even went to his own Pro Bowl in that specialty, but his best single season in the NFL was 40 catches for 727 yards.
