Buccaneers sign WR David Boston

TAMPA, Fla. (May 24, 2006) -- Receiver David Boston, who has missed most of the past two seasons, signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Boston, a Pro Bowl selection in 2001 when he had 98 receptions for the Arizona Cardinals, was limited to five games over the past two years with the Miami Dolphins because of injuries.

All five of those games came in 2005, when he caught four passes for 80 yards before being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.

A first-round draft pick of the Cardinals in 1999, Boston has 315 career catches for 4,699 yards and 25 touchdowns in seven seasons with Arizona, San Diego and Miami.

The Bucs also announced that receiver B.J. Johnson was released.
