Bengals’ Jake Browning interrupts Tyler Boyd interview for good cause

The future of Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd with the team is very much in question coming out of the team’s season-ending win.

Boyd, potentially playing his final game before leaving in free agency with the Bengals, got some unexpected very public support from a teammate after the game, though.

Quarterback Jake Browning actually interrupted Boyd’s postgame interview to show some support, as captured in footage by CLNS Media’s Mike Petraglia.

“(He’s) been my locker mate the whole year, been a big part of helping me bounce back when I throw three picks in a game and I think an underrated part of the whole locker room,” Boyd said. “In the receiver room, obviously we have a ton of talent in there, but he’s a big, unsung hero of the locker room. And I hope he’s back. But wherever he goes, someone is gonna be lucky to have him in the locker room.”

Conventional wisdom says — given the possible major contracts for Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins and through the team drafting multiple receivers this year — that Boyd is the odd man out.

And yet, it’s not so easy to discount the idea that both parties make it work, especially when Boyd continues to have support in the locker room like this after being one of the only remaining veterans to drag the team through the lowest points of the rebuild.
