The New York Giants have signed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and special teamer Miles Boykin, the club announced on Tuesday. Terms of the contract were not released.

Boykin, 27, spent the last two seasons with the Steelers. In 2023, he appeared in all 17 regular season games and the team’s playoff game. He was dressed as the club’s No. 5 wide receiver for the entire season, but was used sparingly in the passing game. Boykin finished with three catches on four targets for 17 yards. In his 85 offensive snaps, he was used primarily as a run blocker.

Boykin also saw significant playing time as a special teamer, playing on four phases. He finished the season with five tackles.

Originally a third-round pick of the Baltimore Ravens out of Notre Dame in 2019, Boykin will be leaving the AFC North for the first time in his pro career. He had his best statistical season with the Ravens in 2002, the he caught 19 passes for 266 yards and four touchdowns.

Injuries limited him to eight games in 2021 and the Steelers claimed him off waivers in April 2022. He re-signed with the Steelers on a one-year deal for 2023.

With Boykin moving on, the Steelers will now be without three of their top five receivers from 2023, as Diontae Johnson was traded to the Carolina Panthers for cornerback Donte Jackson and veteran slot receiver Allen Robinson II was released.
