The player that we didn’t get to see much of, has moved on to the Carolina Panthers.
Well, today the door has been closed on a possible Boykin return. According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, the Panthers have signed Boykin to a one-year deal.
The situation that surrounded Brandon Boykin was nothing short of a mystery. Personally, I was stoked when the Steelers traded for him. Me, and everyone else thought that Boykin would be starting Week 1, but that didn’t happen. Although Boykin can play outside, he is primarily a slot-corner, and the Steelers really don’t trust anyone else in that spot but William Gay.
Yes, it was hard to see Boykin wasting away on the sideline, but such is life. I’d like to thank Brandon Boykin for his contributions to the Steelers. I’d also like to thank him for not signing with an AFC North rival.
