One Guy’s Letter to the Steelers’ Brandon Boykin

Dear Brandon, I’m taking the unusual step of writing this to you because I feel like you deserve some answers and we the fans of the Steelers do too. I was really pleased when the Steelers traded a conditional draft pick to get you out of Philly back on the first of August because I thought (as did many others) that you would be a great asset to our struggling secondary. I saw...

Is the Lack of Snaps for Boykin Due to Friction in the Steelers’ Front Office?

I’m never going to be confused with being the smartest person in the room and I have no problem admitting that unlike many others I know but I can’t help but feel like a total idiot right now.

Boykin Will Return and Man the Slot Corner for the Steelers on Sunday

The mystery of why Brandon Boykin didn’t see the field on defense last week in the opener has been revealed but the good news is that he should be in the line-up for Sunday’s game against San Francisco.

It’s no secret that Chip Kelly isn’t a big fan of the players Andy Reid brought to the Philadelphia Eagles.
