Jets release 2014 sixth-round pick QB Tajh Boyd
The Jets released QB Tajh Boyd three months after selecting him in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
A year ago, Tajh Boyd was considered not only a potential first-round pick but maybe the best quarterback in the 2014 draft class. But a subpar senior season at Clemson and months of scrutiny from NFL general managers, coaches and scouts led to Boyd slipping in the draft. He was eventually taken by the Jets in the sixth round.
Three months later, the Jets released Boyd.
There was never an expectation that Boyd would challenge 2013 second-round pick Geno Smith for the starting job, but he could have earned a roster spot as Smith's backup. Instead, the team will head into the regular season with veteran Michael Vick and salsa-dancin' Matt Simms behind Smith on the depth chart.
Boyd played in two preseason games, completing 8 of 17 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.
