Bucs release Boston



   David Boston's tenure with the Bucs is over - and possibly his career.

   The Bucs released Boston after reaching an injury settlement with the 29-year-old receiver, just six days after police determined that test results showed high levels of GHB in his system at the time of his DUI arrest Aug. 23.

   The Bucs replaced by Boston by re-signing kick returner Mark Jones.

   General Manager Bruce Allen said the Bucs will not attempt to re-sign Boston the way they brought him back after releasing him at the start of the 2006 season.

   '''Yeah, I think we've moved on,'' Allen said. ""And we're hoping this group stays healthy and we move forward.''

   Since his arrest last month, Boston had maintained he was not under the influence when police found him slumped over the steering wheel at a Pinellas Park intersection.

   Two days after his arrest, Allen said there was no 'objective evidence' to support the charges. But all that changed last week when a unrinalysis revealed Boston had high levels of GHB in his system.
