was at practice for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Wednesday and talked to the media following practice and wasted no time in saying that he still has what it takes to play professional football.

"I feel like I'm one of the strongest deep-ball throwers in the world, that's just my look at it," Boyd said via the Edmonton Sun.

Boyd is very motivated to show his brand-new team, his loyal fans and himself what he can do on the gridiron.

“I really want to go out there and just lay it all on the field,” said Boyd. “I don't know how the story is going to end. Everybody writes these chapters, playing things out for you. The outside world (says) you can't do this or you can do this. Nobody really knows, so why not give myself the best opportunity and just try to write the chapters myself. Whatever it takes, more or less. That's kind of been how I've played my whole life."

Boyd thinks that his skillset translates well for the fast-paced style of the Canadian Football League.

“I feel like (my style) translates to the CFL game a little bit,” said Boyd. “I'm able to move around and the ball comes out quickly, so I should be able to go out there and have some fun with it.”

Boyd passed for 11,904 yards with a 64.3% completion rate, 107 touchdowns and 39 interceptions during his outstanding career at Clemson. He also rushed for 1,100 yards and another 26 scores on the ground. The former fan-favorite was also the ACC player of the year in 2012.
