Boston started 13 games last season for the Arizona Cardinals and was a bright spot on a terrible defense racking up 79 tackles and three interceptions. Even with the big year, he didn’t get much attention on the free-agent market, and if he signs with the Giants, it looks like it will be a one year contract where he has to prove himself again to get another contract next off-season.
Cyprien missed all of last season with a torn ACL he suffered last year in August and is trying to prove that he still deserves a spot in the NFL.
The Giants have changed up their secondary this offseason, but it’s clear that they still aren’t completely happy and want a little more depth. Gone is Landon Collins who the team decided not to extend and he signed with the Washington Redskins. The team brought in former Michigan Wolverines standout Jabrill Peppers in the trade that sent Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns. They also signed Antoine Bethea who was also part of the Cardinals last year.
Those two are expected to be the starters this season, but a team can never have enough depth, especially in the secondary. There should be news fairly soon on if the team decides to sign either Cyprian or Boston to a contract to be with the team for the 2019 season.
