News: Boykin was released by the Panthers on Tuesday, Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Impact: Even with Kelvin Benjamin (knee) out for the season, Boykin was buried on the depth chart in Carolina behind the likes of Devin Funchess, Philly Brown, Jerricho Cotchery, Ted Ginn and Brenton Bersin. Boykin's former team in Green Bay might be interested in a reunion.

News: Boykin was waived by the Panthers Tuesday.
Impact: Boykin had 49 catches totaling 681 yards and three touchdowns with Green Bay in 2013 but managed only three receptions in 13 games last season. He became expendable with Monday's acquisition of wideout Kevin Norwood.
Rotowire: Aug 15 / 4:17p ET
News: Boykin caught 1-of-3 targets for 16 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Bills.
Impact: Boykin didn't see a target until the second half, working behind Kelvin Benjamin, Ted Ginn, Jerricho Cotchery, Philly Brown and Devin Funchess. The former Packer is merely hoping to earn one of the final roster spots.
