The Bengals today signed WR Tyler Boyd to a four-year contract extension through the 2023 season. He had been entering the final season of his rookie deal.
Boyd, a fourth-year player, originally was a Bengals second-round draft pick out of the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. He has career totals of 152 catches, 1856 yards and 10 TDs. Last season, he led the Bengals in both receptions (76) and receiving yards (1028), and tied for the team lead in receiving TDs (seven) — all of those totals also were career-highs.

“We think very highly of Tyler and are thrilled to get him in the fold for the next few years,” said Bengals head coach Zac Taylor. “After I joined the team in February, while reviewing video of all the team’s games last year, he was one of the first players that stood out to me as being a hard worker and improving steadily throughout the season. I have also gotten to know him as a person since I arrived, and it was obvious to me early on that it would be a good thing for us to seal him up for the foreseeable future.”
