The Carolina Panthers announced the signing of former Packers WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year contract on Friday.
“It means a lot being from the area and having the opportunity to come back and get a chance to play for the Panthers,” Boykin said. “But at the end of the day, it still boils down to how I go about my business on the field. I have to prove myself all over again.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity the Panthers are giving me. I’m going to come in here and bust my tail,” Boykin said. “I’m trying to re-establish my identity and get back to being the player I know I can be.”
Boykin, 25, originally signed on with the Jaguars as undrafted free agent out of Virginia Tech back in 2012. He later caught on with the Packers after he was waived by Jacksonville a month after the signed him.
In 2014, Boykin appeared in 13 games for Green Bay and caught three passes for 23 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
