Boyle Takes the ‘Laser Show’ to Detroit

GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Tim Boyle Laser Show is on his way to Detroit.

The Detroit Lions signed the former Green Bay Packers quarterback on Wednesday night, where he’ll be the backup to new starter Jared Goff.

Or, perhaps, he’ll ultimately challenge Goff for the starting job.

A strong-armed quarterback with horrendous production in college, Boyle went undrafted in 2018. During his rookie training camp with the Packers, fellow Connecticut native and then-Athletic Packers beat writer Michael Cohen coined the “Tim Boyle Laser Show” nickname because Boyle was, well, throwing lasers on the practice field.
