You know I remember hearing a lot of good about this guy a few years ago in camp and wonder why he didn't make the team and the guys like Sam Williams that you never hear of in camp do. I was locked up last year during camp so I don't know what happened then.

Same here. Boyd had a great camp a couple years ago and I saw him play a little in the preseason. I thought he looked great and was really excited. I don't know which LB he was competing with for the job but obviously he lost. We had Morrison, Howard and Williams (?).

Then last year, I got excited again in preseason thinking that for sure Boyd would "make the team this year" but it was Stevie Brown who stole the show. I know he's not a LB but man-o-man did Stevie look good last year--and still didn't make the team.

I don't think I even heard Boyd's name in camp last year. I thought he wasn't with the Raiders anymore until I heard his name this year. Honestly, I don't think he looks that good this year.....especially for someone who's been in camp for 2 years.(But he's better than some others)

this guy along with Stevie Brown lit up camp and preseason last year. What really bummed me was neither made the team and guys like Hiram Eugene and Sam Williams did. Had it been up to Tom Cable, Brown would've made the team in favor of somebody on the Al Davis scholarship program but Davis overruled it. However, we started last year with 7 WRs but after week 1 we cut one and brought Brown back. I honestly think this will be Boyd's year to make the team with Eugene on IR. That should give us 5 safeties in Huff, Branch, Mitchell, Brown, and Boyd.
