Many Steelers fans wondered all season why the team wasn’t putting cornerback Brandon Boykin on the field more.
They won’t have to worry about it anymore.
Boykin, who was a free agent in March, today officially came to terms on a deal with the NFC Champion Carolina Panthers on a one-year deal.

For some unknown reason, Boykin just never was able to get on the field much for the Steelers after they traded for him last year during camp from the Eagles.
It was almost weekly that people would either write or call into shows asking why Boykin wasn’t used more. They won’t have that issue any more, as he saw the writing on the wall and will be far away from the Steelers in 2016.
