NY Jets News: Jets sign sixth-round pick QB Tajh Boyd



In NY Jets news tonight, the New York Jets signed sixth-round draft pick and former Clemson starting quarterback Tajh Boyd to a multi-year contract.

Per Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Talk, the club announced a four-year deal with Boyd on Thursday evening.

Here's Wilkening's synopsis of Boyd's career at Clemson: "one of the Jets’ four sixth-round picks, the 6-foot-1, 222-pound Boyd threw for 11,904 yards with 107 touchdowns and 39 interceptions in four seasons with Clemson (2010-2013). He completed 64.3 percent of his passes (901-of-1,402)."

With Geno Smith and Michael Vick firmly entrenched at the top of the Jets' depth chart, Boyd will battle with Matt Simms for the team's third quarterback spot.

With Boyd signed, the New York Jets have now signed six of their 2014 NFL Draft picks. The other five are as follows: guard Dakota Dozier (round 4), linebacker Jeremiah George (round 5), linebacker IK Enemkpali (round 6), wide receiver Quincy Enunwa (round 6) and linebacker Trevor Reilly (round 7).
