Steelers encounter obstacle in signing Bengals free agent wide receiver Tyler Boyd.

At this stage of free agency, most of the highly sought-after players have already been signed. While the Pittsburgh Steelers may have had a plan in mind when they traded Diontae Johnson, it has yet to materialize. This isn’t to say that their plan won’t come to fruition eventually, especially if it involves signing Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd. However, according to Steelers beat writer Ray Fittipaldo, the two sides are currently at odds over financial terms, prompting Pittsburgh to adopt a strategy of waiting for Boyd to come around to their offer.

The Steelers are essentially playing a waiting game with Tyler Boyd, although it remains uncertain how successful this approach will be. It’s apparent that Boyd is seeking a higher salary than what Pittsburgh is offering him.

While Boyd isn’t the only available free-agent receiver, his connections to Pittsburgh make him the Steelers’ preferred choice. Nevertheless, if an agreement with Boyd cannot be reached before the draft, the Steelers seem prepared to shift their focus to scouting top receivers in the 2024 NFL draft as a backup plan (Plan B).
