Tajh Boyd launches new blog
VA (Phoebus HS)
Years Played: 2009 - 2013
Former quarterback Tajh Boyd has decided to start a blog at rolltajh.com so fans can follow his journey with the Boston Brawlers of the FXFL and other future endeavors on the gridiron.
Boyd was selected by the New York Jets with the 213th overall pick in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft but was cut at the end of August. Boyd played in two games in the preseason with the Jets, completing 8-of-17 passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.
In his college career at Clemson, Boyd passed for 11,904 yards with a 64.3% completion rate, 107 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,100 yards and another 26 scores on the ground.
Here is a excerpt from his new blog: "This experience has been humbling to say the least," Boyd blogging about the FXFL. "When you go from 5 years at a major university and getting drafted by NFL team, both situations where everything is taken care of for the most part, to now riding yellow school buses, buying your own gear, cleats, protective pads, food (which if no one is cooking can add up to a hefty amount), and rental cars for transportation. Never in my 24 years did I think this is where I'd be in my football career, but I've enjoyed it."
