Tre Boston played for Sean McDermott for three years with the Carolina Panthers.

Now, the free agent and the new Bills head coach could reunite in Orchard Park.

Boston announced on Twitter on Friday he'd be heading to Buffalo to meet with his former coach.

It's no secret the secondary still needs to addressed, especially at the safety position.

Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyner were signed as free agents, but as Sports Director Joe Buscaglia outlined in March, for McDermott's defensive scheme it'd be best to add another safety into the mix, which Boston is.

Boston started 16 games for Carolina over his three years in Charlotte and saw action in 42 games.  He had 77 tackles and three interceptions.

Having played in McDermott's scheme, the move would make sense.  However, according to Pro Football Focus Boston ranked 47th out of 90 at the position.
