TigerNet.com spoke with Boyd on Tuesday morning and he is currently flying to Winnipeg.

Boyd's player rights have been traded from Hamilton to Winnipeg for a conditional draft pick in the 2017 CFL Draft.

He was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers back in mid-August after not making an appearance in either of the two Steelers' preseason games while on the active roster.

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.

Winnipeg has the following QB's on their roster besides Boyd: Drew Willy, Robert Marve, Matt Nichols and Brian Brohm.
