In an attempt to get to know Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd, we took a look through the most interesting moments he's shared on social media over the past few years. Boyd certainly has a strong passion for the city of Pittsburgh where he grew up, played in high school and played in college. Now, Pittsburgh will be enemy No. 1 as he joins the Cincinnati Bengals.
Heinz Field isn't new territory for the Pittsburgh native and former Pittsburgh Panther receiver. The Panthers play at Heinz Field so he should feel plenty adjusted when the Bengals take on the Steelers in Week 2 in Pittsburgh.

And, he's been a hometown hero in Pittsburgh... Though, that's changing now.

He was a winner in high school, too.

And, he did wear Bengals colors in high school so orange and black aren't new to Boyd.

Boyd knows the meaning of family.
He has a daughter, too.
Boyd is pretty quick, which will come in handy.

He has an attitude of someone who looks forward to proving his critics wrong.

He wrote this letter of appreciation to Pittsburgh, but we're hoping those days are behind him.
Since after all, he's a Bengal now!
