finished up the final day of Steelers' minicamp on Thursday afternoon.

Boyd was thinking about all his fans in South Carolina and especially those affected by the Charleston shooting that took nine lives on Wednesday night at the African Methodist Episcopal Church.

"My heart is broke for the city," Boyd said to the Patriot-News. "It's unbelievable what the country is going through in general right now. So hopefully things will slow down and people will start to come together as one."

"I don't think it's happening right now as far as everybody unifying and things of that nature. We have a lot of examples out there throughout the whole country. We just got to continue to grow as a nation."

Boyd canceled his appearance to throw out the first pitch with the Charleston River Dogs on Friday.

He encourages people to donate to the relief fund at your local Wells Fargo or to the historic church that was affected in the Charleston shooting.
