Report: Steelers ‘trying to wait out’ free agent WR Tyler Boyd

After trading Diontae Johnson to the Panthers, the Steelers have a big hole in their roster at the wide receiver position entering the 2024 season. Former Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd remains a popular choice for Pittsburgh to sign as one of the top remaining players available in free agency.

Steelers reportedly “trying to wait out” free agent WR Tyler Boyd - Behind  the Steel Curtain

The big-bodied slot receiver would be a good fit in the Steelers’ offense under new coordinator Arthur Smith, however, the team is reportedly in a negotiation stalemate with Boyd.

According to The Athletic’s Steelers writer Mark Kaboly on 93.7 The Fan, Boyd “wants to get paid more than [the Steelers] are offering him.”

Per Spotrac, Boyd’s current market value is a three-year, $26 million deal. He had a 67-catch, 667-yard, and two-touchdown season in 2023 with Cincinnati.

Kaboly had previously posted that some in the Steelers organization are not completely on board with adding Boyd, stating that the signing “doesn’t appear anywhere close to a sure thing like it appeared to be a week ago at this time.” The Pittsburgh native had previously shown interest in signing with his hometown team.
