Tyler Boyd just signed a contract that will make him a multimillionaire at age 22. What will the rookie wide receiver do with his money?

The first two things Boyd plans on doing are purchasing a new house and a new car for his mother. He also mentioned that he will be looking for an apartment in Cincinnati.

"I don't know how long I'll be around Cincy," Boyd said when discussing why he was looking for an apartment and not a house. "Hopefully I'm there for the whole NFL career, but I felt like I should wait until my next contract to start looking at houses and stuff like that."

When asked about whether he's had to buy his teammates dinner yet, Boyd seemed to indicate that he hasn't had a formal team dinner yet, though fellow wideout Brandon Tate wanted to go to dinner with him the night before. When it comes to rookie "hazing," Boyd is anticipating a team dinner in which he'll have to pay the bill, but for now, he seems to be taking life one step at a time.

"I wouldn't be cheap with my guys. I know that those are going to be guys who have my back. I'm not saying I'm going to treat them every night, I'll do something big with them, probably go to Ruth's Chris," Boyd said.

Here's the full video to hear what Boyd had to say about his new contract, per TMZ Sports:

On an unrelated note, getting stopped at the airport by TMZ reporters has to be one of the most annoying things I can think of anyone having to do. Being a TMZ reporter assigned to sit at an airport and look for famous people to talk to wouldn't be much better. Good for Boyd for having the patience to humor the reporters. I rarely have the patience to talk to people I don't want to talk to, especially after getting off a flight. The rookie wideout seems like a great guy; I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say when speaking to the Cincinnati media.
