Rex: No receiver has separated from the pack

Posted by Chris Brown on August 5, 2016 – 8:45 am

While Bills head coach Rex Ryan will be the first to acknowledge that a few receivers have made some nice plays through the first week of camp, he does not believe anyone has begun to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

Ryan is looking at the wideout contingent beyond what is widely perceived as the top two in Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods.

“I think when we start getting into the preseason games and the scrimmages and all that, maybe then we’ll see somebody separate,” said Ryan. “Greg Salas is a guy that made a great catch on a third and two, (Thursday). Tyrod was really patient he took away the first three options, then hit the deep and he makes a great catch. But, he’s got some savvy, great hands, so there’s a comfort level there.

“But then you get a guy like (Greg) Little who shows up, making some big plays and (Jarret) Boykin’s had his moments. We talked about Dez (Lewis) already. But to say all that the answer simply is no, nobody has separated themselves.”

Boykin: Taylor would look for me in crunch time

Posted by Chris Brown on January 15, 2016 – 12:26 pm

One of Buffalo’s newest wide receivers is Jarrett Boykin, who signed a reserve/future free agent this past week. He appeared on the John Murphy Show and talked about what he hopes to accomplish through the course of the 2016 offseason in the hopes of making the 53-man roster. He also spoke about his familiarity with Tyrod Taylor, who was a college teammate at Virginia Tech.

Boykin said that he and Taylor had a great on field chemistry at Tech, especially when the game is on the line.

“My and Ty were on the same page. He would look for me in crunch time situations,” said Boykin. “We just knew what we had to do. We all wanted to win as a team down there. Tyrod knows what he wants and will work as hard as he needs to in order to get what he wants. He deserves everything that’s coming to him now.

“I’m proud of the things he’s done up there in Buffalo. He proved a lot of things up there and that he’s a really good quarterback.”

Boykin, who was at One Bills Drive late in the regular season for a workout, caught up with Taylor, who watched the workout. He and Taylor intend to get some time together on the field this offseason.

“I talked to him when I went up for my workout and again when I signed and he congratulated me,” said Boykin. “And we haven’t been able to get together in the offseason, but we’ll definitely do that now.”
