Releasing Boston will clear around $3.5 million in cash, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The 28-year-old was third on the Panthers with 95 tackles last season. He also had one interception, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, three tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits.
Boston spent five seasons with the Panthers, with his first stint from 2014-16 and his second from 2019-20. He also played for the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Chargers.
