Matt Simms did everything in his power to warrant his status as the team's third quarterback. Boyd might have potential, but it will take more time for any NFL team to determine that. It is clear that Martavis Bryant and Sammy Watkins were much bigger elements than anyone realized over a year ago.
Boyd struggled in camp and during the time he saw in the preseason. Boyd is a dynamic and charismatic player who has a history of being able to provide a spark during his days at Clemson. The team might try to get him back onto their team as a developmental player as a member of the practice squad. I think the Jets would be well served in not giving up on Boyd just yet.
