Practice squad moves are commonplace in the NFL, and the Kansas City Chiefs are no stranger to the wheeling and dealing.
In fact, if you’re a loyal reader of Arrowhead Addict, than you’d know that we’re reporting on practice squad pickups, releases and even promotions at least once a week.
This week is no different.
According to a press release from the Chiefs, Kansas City has picked up a wide receiver for the practice squad. His name? Jheranie Boyd.
Here’s the 411 on Boyd via the release:
Boyd (6-2, 190) originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on May 6, 2013. He was released by the club prior to training camp and then signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on Aug. 1. Boyd was released by the Bengals on Aug. 25. He played collegiately at the University of North Carolina where he caught 44 passes for 860 yards (19.5 avg.) with 13 touchdown receptions. He added 39 rushes for 287 yards (6.1 avg.) and one rushing touchdown. Born in Charlotte, N.C., he prepped at Gastonia High School in Gastonia, N.C., where he was a multi-sport standout.
Though Boyd did appear to have a nice career at North Carolina, he’s yet to put up any stats in the NFL.
At 6’2”, 190 pounds though, he should provide a nice target on the practice squad, and hopefully he’ll be able to give the Chiefs’ secondary some quality looks.
