Jets sign another two picks, including Boyd
By Rich Cimini
They're more than halfway home.
The New York Jets signed fourth-round wide receiver Shaq Evans (UCLA) and sixth-round quarterback Tajh Boyd (Clemson) on Thursday, meaning seven of their 12 draft picks are under contract.
Boyd, who passed for more than 11,000 yards in his record-setting college career, signed a four-year contract for $2.3 million, including a $79,000 signing bonus. Evans, who led the Bruins with 47 catches, signed a four-year deal for $2.67 million, including a $450,000 signing bonus.
