The Dolphins' major need for help at wide receiver could get a significant boost very shortly if a rumor materializes. According to the San Diego Tribune, the San Diego Chargers would be considering trading wide receiver David Boston and the Dolphins are believed to be one of the teams interested in his services.

According to the Tribune, the Dolphins have offered the Chargers their third-round pick in this year's draft in exchange for Boston. That would be a small price to pay for a receiver with a tremendous size/speed combination.

The one problem with Boston is his volatile personality, but he is said to have a great relationship with new Dolphins wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who worked with him when both were with Arizona.

Boston is a tremendously talented receiver, as evidence by his tremendous 2001 season with the Cardinals when he had 98 catches for 1,598 yards (16.3 average) and eight touchdowns.

The Dolphins and Chargers consummated a trade last offseason with Junior Seau coming to Miami for a fifth-round pick.
