David Boston completed his physical and was introduced as the newest member of the Dolphins Thursday after the trade with the San Diego Chargers become official.

Boston, wearing a Dolphins baseball cap, said he was looking forward to starting the offseason conditioning program beginning Monday.

Boston flew back to Arizona following the press conference and is expected back in South Florida on Sunday.

I'm really, really excited to be here and play amongst a bunch of great players here," Boston said. "I'm anxious to fit in, be around the guys and get started."

Getting Boston to work hard in the offseason certainly won't be an issue, given his reputation as a workout fanatic.

Boston also said he was looking forward to working again with receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, under whom he had his greatest season, a 98-catch performance in 2001.

"I just want to come here and work hard and just be in his guidance," Boston said. "He is my coach and I'm here to listen to what he says. Coach Sullivan is a guy that I have a great amount of respect for and I'm anxious to play for him again."

As far as the criticims that have been leveled against him in the past, Boston refused to look back.

"I'm just focusing on the future right now," the wide receiver said. "That's in the past and I'm looking at this as a fresh start for me to go out there and work hard and work toward a championship. That's what I'm focusing on."
