The Indianapolis Colts’ rebuild in the secondary continues on Monday. Former Carolina Panthers and Los Angeles Chargers safety Tre Boston will visit with the Colts on Monday. The Colts will also host former New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro.

Boston, 25, spent the first three seasons of his career in Carolina before being cut by the team last May. He then signed a one-year deal with the Chargers for the 2017 season. Boston was the Panthers’ fourth round pick out of North Carolina back in 2014.

In his career, he has appeared in 58 games, starting 31 of them. He has racked up 131 tackles, eight interceptions and two sacks. Last season with the Chargers, Boston started 15 of games 16 games he appeared in, putting together 56 tackles and five interceptions.

Vaccaro, 27, has five years of experience in the NFL, spending all five seasons with the Saints. In his career, Vaccaro has accumulated 283 tackles, 7.5 sacks and eight interceptions. Vaccaro had the best season of his career in 2017, with 48 tackles, 1.5 sacks and three interceptions.

Pro Football Focus came out with their top secondaries in the NFL and the Colts were towards the bottom of the list, at No. 29. With these two visits on Monday, the Colts could be adding the depth they need to turn their secondary in the right direction next season.
