NFL Rumor: Tyler Boyd’s next move depends on Mike Williams free agency

As free agency is in full swing, many NFL veterans have already lost their jobs with the team they once used to call their second home. Among them, the Los Angeles Chargers’ vet receiver Mike Williams is the one who spent his past seven seasons in Los Angeles. 

As Williams explores his options in the free agency market, he has caught the attention of fellow wide receiver Tyler Boyd of the Cincinnati Bengals. Meanwhile, Boyd has made it clear that he is keeping a close eye on Williams’ next move.

 Tyler Boyd to choose NFL team according to Mike Williams signing

Cincinnati Bengals’ receiver Tyler Boyd finds himself in the spotlight as he prepares to make a crucial decision about his NFL future. According to reports, Boyd’s choice of team hinges on the signing of Mike Williams.

The New England Patriots have emerged as potential suitors for Boyd, with MassLive indicating their interest in the former Bengals pass-catcher. Additionally, there is mutual interest between Boyd and the Pittsburgh Steelers, a connection bolstered by Boyd’s collegiate success at the University of Pittsburgh. Other teams like the New York Jets, Carolina Panthers, and Los Angeles Chargers are also in the mix.

Boyd’s decision to wait for Williams’ signing adds an interesting twist to the ongoing free agency period. Williams, who has battled injuries over the past two seasons during his tenure with the Chargers, recently became a free agent after his release due to salary cap constraints.

For part of Byod, he has spent his entire eight-year NFL career with the Bengals, establishing himself as a reliable target in their passing game. With over 6,000 career receiving yards and 31 touchdowns to his name, Boyd’s contributions to the Bengals’ offense have been significant. In the most recent season, he recorded 67 catches for 667 yards and two touchdowns.

Mike Williams’ potential landing spots

The anticipation surrounding Mike Williams’ free agency has reached a fever pitch, with speculation rampant about where the talented wide receiver will land next.

According to recent reports, Williams is scheduled to meet with the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday, followed by a meeting with the New York Jets on Monday. The Jets have long shown interest in Williams, having pursued him aggressively during the previous offseason.

In addition to these teams, the Kansas City Chiefs have emerged as potential suitors for Williams. The Chiefs faced challenges with their receiving corps last season. With quarterback Patrick Mahomes restructuring his contract to free up salary-cap space, the Chiefs could be in a strong position to pursue Williams.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears have also thrown their hat into the ring for the 29-year-old’s services. Following the trade of quarterback Justin Fields, the Bears are undergoing organizational changes and are eyeing ways to bolster their roster. Whether or not they select USC star Caleb Williams as the first overall pick in the draft, the Bears are keen to add talent like Mike Williams to their team.

With his blend of skill and experience, the former Chargers player is undoubtedly a coveted asset in the free-agent market, and teams are vying for the opportunity to add him to their roster.
