The Facts: Boyd spent the offseason negotiating for a contract extension while fully participating in offseason work, rather than holding out. That paid off. Boyd and the Bengals have agreed to a four-year, $43 million contract extension, according to multiple reports.
Diehards Line: The 24-year-old Boyd is coming off his best season. He had career-highs across the board last year with 76 catches, 1,028 yards, a 13.5-yard average and seven touchdowns last season. Cincinnati thinks Boyd can keep putting up those kinds of numbers for many years to come.
