David Boston

David Boston was one of Arizona’s best players from 1999 to 2002. Earning a Pro Bowl nod with nearly 1,600 receiving yards in 2001, fans were hoping he’d continue that level of play for a long time.

It was looking like that until one night when someone noticed Boston driving all over the road and phoned it in to the police as he followed the former Cardinals wide receiver. When he was pulled over, no alcohol was in his system, but a toxicology test showed traces of cocaine and marijuana in his blood.

When he left in free agency and signed with the San Diego Chargers in 2003, Boston was a nightmare. He caused so many problems in San Diego that he was traded to the Dolphins before the start of the 2004 season. That got even worse when he tested positive for steroids before the 2004 campaign.
