— The Cincinnati Bengals have signed wide receiver Tyler Boyd to a four-year contract extension, the team announced.
The deal is reportedly worth $43 million.
“We think very highly of Tyler and are thrilled to get him in the fold for the next few years,” Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said.

“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.”
Boyd, 24, is coming off a breakout season. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder set career highs for receptions (76) and receiving yards (1,208 yards) and touchdown receptions (7) in 2018.
Boyd, who was entering the final season of his rookie deal, is now under contract through the 2023 season.
