Training camp begins this weekend for the Cincinnati Bengals, but one of their biggest question marks has already been answered.
On Tuesday, the Bengals and wide receiver Tyler Boyd reached an agreement on a four-year extension that will keep him in the Queen City through the 2023 season. It will also pay him an extra $43 million.

Boyd’s 84.6 overall grade last season was easily a career-best, and the 127.8 passer rating he generated when targeted ranked sixth among wide receivers with 40-plus targets. https://t.co/8Pd4WkjgSd pic.twitter.com/WOKINLYJtp
Getting Boyd re-signed was something the Bengals worked very hard to get done before Week 1 of the regular season kicks off, so getting it done before camp even opens was a major win for this franchise.
After the good news broke, Boyd spoke with Bengals.com about his new deal. Here is a recap of what he had to say:
