Terry Time is in full effect.

The Arizona Cardinals, hours after signing veteran linebacker Arthur Moats have now signed veteran safety Tre Boston per Adam Schefter:

Boston, a four year NFL veteran, played his first three seasons with Steve Wilks and the Carolina Panthers, before moving onto the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017.

With the Chargers, Boston finally broke out, starting 15 games and finishing with 57 tackles, 5 interceptions, 2 pass breakups and one tackle for loss. It earned him the 30th highest safety grade in the league, per PFF, at 81.4.

Boston is looking for an opportunity to prove he is a full time player and the Cardinals may afford him that.

While a starting position is not available, a heavy playing time position is as Budda Baker is slated to fill the Tyrann Mathieu role, starting strong safety and sliding down to the slot cornerback and bringing on another safety. Well, that safety position is up for grabs and likely will be where the Cardinals are looking for Boston to play.

It's another key late veteran signing for the Arizona Cardinals, this time, without the clever #KeimTime hashtag.

No, instead it's #TerryTime.
