Boykin was cut Friday, BuffaloBills.com reports.
He had a history with quarterback Tyrod Taylor, but never really did much this summer and in the end didn't offer much upside for a final roster spot.
Boykin was signed as a free agent Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Given all the injuries the Panthers had to their wide receiving group this past season, Boykin might have made some strides in a productive Cam Newton offense. But he got cut late in camp, and now he'll have some work to do to even gain a spot with the Bills. He does have one very nice season (49/681/3) under his belt, and he did play in college with Bills quarterback Tyro Taylor.
The Panthers reached the NFL's 75-man limit Tuesday thanks to a series of moves, including placing star wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin on the season-ending injured reserve list with a knee injury, per a team release.
