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. Aug 23 - 10:20 AM

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.
Mar 10 - 8:13 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.
Mar 10 - 4:53 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.
Jan 28 - 9:55 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.
Jan 18 - 7:55 PM

Active for the first time since Week 3, Jarrett Boykin wasn't targeted in Green Bay's Week 7 win over the Panthers.

Boykin remained firmly behind Davante Adams on the depth chart. It's possible Boykin could eventually re-establish a rotation with his rookie teammate, but for now he's well off the re-draft radar.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 7 game against the Panthers.

Boykin returns after a three-game absence, during which time Davante Adams showed very well as the No. 3 wideout for Aaron Rodgers. It's uncertain exactly what will happen at the spot now, as the two were rotating prior to Boykin's injury. We suspect Adams will keep the majority of the job based on both a talent gap and how he's performed. Given this tasty matchup with Carolina's awful corners, Adams remains on the WR3 radar -- but there's far more risk here now.

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is questionable for Week 7 against the Panthers.

Boykin has missed the past three games. If he plays, he'll be the No. 4 receiver behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Davante Adams.
Fri, Oct 17, 2014 12:46:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin (groin) remained limited on Thursday.

It's unclear if Boykin is ready to return for Sunday's game against the Panthers. If he does, it will be as the Packers' No. 4 receiver behind Davante Adams.
Thu, Oct 16, 2014 05:56:00 PM

Jarrett Boykin (groin) returned to practice Wednesday, getting in a limited session.

Boykin has missed the past three games. Davante Adams has seized the Packers' No. 3 receiver role. Boykin will likely slot back in as the No. 4 when healthy.
Wed, Oct 15, 2014 01:34:00 PM

Packers declared WR Jarrett Boykin, QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Sam Barrington, C Garth Gerhart and DE Datone Jones inactive for Week 6 against the Dolphins.

Boykin is falling out of the Packers' receiver rotation as he struggles to get healthy. Davante Adams will continue to run as the No. 3 versus Miami.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 11:42:00 AM

Jarrett Boykin (groin) is not practicing for Week 6.

Boykin is expected to miss significant time with the injury, leaving Davante Adams locked into the No. 3 role behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.
