We knew there were going to be a lot of cap casualties this offseason with the salary cap going down to a projected $180 million in 2021, and the Carolina Panthers cut one of their veteran players on Friday as a result.

After signing him to a three-year deal just a season ago, the Panthers released veteran safety Tre Boston, allowing him to hit the open market. Of course, this is potentially important to note in Washington, especially once you consider the numerous links they have to Boston.

Boston was drafted by the Panthers in 2014 when Ron Rivera was the head coach, and he re-signed with the team in 2019 and signed a contract extension last season with Marty Hurney in charge. Washington also has a need to improve the free safety position, looking to find someone to run alongside Kameron Curl.

We’ll see if they show any interest in signing the veteran for relatively cheap, which they chose not to do last offseason.
