    Almost a done deal.....

    Associated Press
    MIAMI -- A trade sending former Pro Bowl receiver David Boston from San Diego to the Miami Dolphins could be completed by Tuesday, a source familiar with the talks said on condition of anonymity.

    Completion of the deal hinged on Boston accepting a restructured, incentive-laden contract. He's guaranteed $6.9 million over the next two seasons under terms of the seven-year contract he signed before falling out of favor in San Diego.

    Boston caught 70 passes for 880 yards and seven scores last season, but teammates criticized his work ethic, and he was suspended for one game following an argument with a coach. In Miami, he would be reunited with receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who helped him reach the Pro Bowl in 2001 when both were with Arizona.

    Boston caught 98 passes for 1,598 yards that year. The former Ohio State star was the eighth player taken in the 1999 draft.

    The Dolphins are eager to upgrade their receiving corps. Acquiring Boston would allow the team to focus elsewhere -- perhaps the offensive line -- in the first round of next month's draft.

    Boston also would provide an appealing target for A.J. Feeley, acquired two weeks ago from Philadelphia to compete with Jay Fiedler for the quarterback job.

    Last season the Dolphins ranked 26th in the NFL in passing.

    looks like it's official now.

    "MIAMI -- The Dolphins acquired former Pro Bowl receiver David Boston from San Diego for a sixth-round draft choice in 2005 and a player to be named, Chargers general manager A.J. Smith said Monday. The deal is contingent on Boston passing a physical in Miami. The Dolphins tentatively plan to announce the trade Wednesday.
    Smith said the player to be named won't be high-profile.

    The teams completed the trade following six days of negotiations after Boston accepted a restructured contract. He was guaranteed $6.9 million over the next two seasons under terms of the seven-year deal he signed last March before falling out of favor in San Diego."

    San Diego wanted rid of Boston so bad they gave him up for a 6th round pick? Ouch. Hopefully Mr. Boston can turn things around in Miami.

    Good deal for both. Boston is beyond a beast. I think if Feeley can give him the ball, he will have no problem shining in Miami with Williams
