Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports reports that the Steelers have agreed to terms with QB Tajh Boyd on a one-year contract.
Boyd worked out for the Lions last month, but there hasn’t been a lot of buzz surrounding him since the visit with Detroit.
Boyd was taken the sixth round of this year’s NFL draft by the New York Jets. However, he was unable to make the team’s final 53-man roster and was released just before the start of the season.
He later signed a contract with the Florida Blacktips of the FXFL.
Since being released by the Jets, Boyd has worked out for Bills, Giants, and Redskins, but never received an offer from these teams.
During his four-year career at Clemson, Boyd throw for 11,904 yards and completed 64.3 percent of his passes to go along with 107 touchdowns and 39 interceptions.
