Tre Boston had a terrific first season in Los Angeles. The team should bring him back for another.

Both Boston and Adrian Phillips are set to become unrestricted free agents. Losing both would leave the team awfully thin in the secondary.

Boston spent the first three seasons of his career with the Carolina Panthers after the team chose him in the fourth round of the 2014 draft. But he was cut by the team prior to the start of this past season. The Chargers scooped him up and he enjoyed the best season of his career, posting career highs with 79 tackles, five interceptions and eight pass defections.

The team does not have any major names set to become unrestricted free agents this offseason. Antonio Gates and Matt Slauson are arguably the players the team will have to make the biggest decisions in regards to re-signing and while both guys would be nice to keep around, the team would be fine without them.

If I were Tom Telesco and I were to choose just one name from that list to bring back to the team with a new contract, it would be Boston, easily.
