Free agent WR Jarrett Boykin worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

As did Aldrick Robinson, Greg Salas and Damaris Johnson. The Jets are extremely thin at wideout behind Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, while Marshall is dealing with toe and ankle injuries.

Free agent WR Jarrett Boykin worked out for the Patriots on Friday.

The Patriots have only four active wideouts even after trading for Keshawn Martin. Boykin failed to make the Panthers after getting nontendered by the Packers this offseason and wouldn't be more than a depth flier. The Patriots also worked out ex-Rams WR Austin Pettis.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are not interested in free agent WR Jarrett Boykin "to this point."

The Pack could be in the market for a veteran receiver, but aren't knocking down the door to sign a wideout who posted a 49/681/3 line with the team in 2013. Green Bay made no effort to re-sign Boykin after he caught just three passes in 13 games last season.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 04:12:00 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein expects the Packers to sign a veteran receiver.

Silverstein mentions three ex-Packers: free agent WR Jarrett Boykin -- who was released by the Panthers on Tuesday -- Giants WR James Jones, and Lions WR Jeremy Ross. Boykin caught just three passes for Green Bay in 2014.
Wed, Sep 2, 2015 09:39:00 AM

Panthers released WR Jarrett Boykin.

The acquisition of Kevin Norwood from Seattle on Monday likely sealed his fate. Boykin caught 49 passes with the Packers in 2013 but has struggled to find playing time since. Being cut by a receiver-needy team like the Panthers is not a great sign for his NFL future. Carolina also cut S Robert Lester.

Panthers beat writer Joseph Person doesn't think WR Jarrett Boykin will make the 53-man roster.

He expects the Panthers to keep five wideouts with Boykin as the odd man out. Person said Boykin has put pressure on Brenton Bersin for the last spot but the coaches "seem to prefer" Bersin. Boykin has logged nine catches for 93 yards this preseason.
Sun, Aug 30, 2015 11:43:00 AM

Panthers WR Jarrett Boykin was targeted a game-high 12 times in Saturday's preseason game against the Dolphins.

He caught six passes for 53 yards with his longest gain going for 17 yards. Boykin was pretty much an afterthought for the Panthers until Kelvin Benjamin went down with a torn ACL last week. Though it's unlikely Boykin will emerge as a fantasy weapon, his chances of making the 53-man roster have improved immensely now that Benjamin is out for the year.
Sun, Aug 23, 2015 10:20:00 AM

Panthers WR Jarrett Boykin has had an "up-and-down" training camp.

Signed to a one-year contract in March, Boykin was also singled out as a player who struggled at OTAs. He's neither big nor fast and has battled a case of the drops in camp. Boykin will need a big preseason to make the team.
Fri, Aug 14, 2015 09:14:00 AM

The Charlotte Observer singled out WR Jarrett Boykin as a player who struggled during OTAs.

Boykin "did little to separate himself from the crowd at receiver." It's not a surprise after he was quickly iced by Davante Adams for the No. 3 wideout role in Green Bay a year ago and then settled for a one-year, $700,000 deal in free agency. Operating with a JAG skill set, Boykin is no lock for the final roster.
Mon, Jun 15, 2015 09:43:00 AM

Panthers signed WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year contract.

Boykin, 25, lost the third receiver role to Davante Adams in Green Bay last season after posting a 49-681-3 receiving line in 2013. Boykin stands 6-foot-2, 217 with 4.74 speed, so he's essentially a younger version of Jerricho Cotchery at this point. Boykin is viable offseason depth, but Carolina needs to keep searching for a No. 2 wideout upgrade opposite Kelvin Benjamin.
Fri, Mar 27, 2015 01:52:00 PM

Free agent WR Jarrett Boykin will visit the Panthers.

Boykin had as many drops as catches in 2014 (three each). That's a nightmare season. The good news is, he's only 25 and the Panthers don't have much depth at wideout behind Kelvin Benjamin and Jerricho Cotchery. Boykin became a free agent Tuesday when the Packers declined to tender him.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 08:13:00 PM

The Packers have opted not to tender restricted free agent WR Jarrett Boykin a contract, making him a free agent.

Buried on the depth chart in Green Bay, the move is likely best for Boykin's future. Boykin played just 122 snaps on offense last season, and was going to be no better than the Pack's No. 4 receiver in 2015. A slow-footed possession receiver, Boykin's phone won't be ringing off the hook the first week of free agency, but still only 25, he'll eventually get calls.
Tue, Mar 10, 2015 04:53:00 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't envision the Packers even making an offer to restricted free agent WR Jarrett Boykin.

Boykin entered the season as the Packers' clear No. 3 receiver, but got hurt and was passed by rookie Davante Adams and left in the dust. He played just 122 offensive snaps after Week 3. Even if the Packers can't re-sign free agent Randall Cobb, Boykin appears on his way out. He's a slow possession receiver.
Wed, Jan 28, 2015 09:55:00 AM

Jarrett Boykin caught only three passes for 23 yards in 2014.

Boykin went 0-for the playoffs. Boykin looked like an emerging player in 2014, but is now a restricted free agent with an uncertain future in Green Bay. Randall Cobb could be on the way out, but Boykin is miles behind Davante Adams on the depth chart. The Pack could decide they'd rather move forward with Jeff Janis taking Boykin's roster spot.
