Supposed bad hip and all, former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Brandon Boykin reportedly now has another team interested in him.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN.com, the Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to have Boykin in for a workout in the near future.
Boykin, who was released by the Carolina Panthers several weeks ago after signing a one-year contract with them earlier in the offseason, has since visited with the Atlanta Falcons. At that time, however, reports began to surface that the former Philadelphia Eagles draft pick had some sort of issue with one of his hips.
This past weekend, Steelers defensive backs coach Carnell Lake reportedly told a few attendees of the annual fan fantasy camp in Pittsburgh that Boykin has a “degenerative hip condition” and that one of his legs is longer than the other.
It will be interesting to see what ultimately comes of Boykin’s upcoming visit with the Cowboys. If they do decide to sign him, it would likely be for the veteran league minimum.
The Cowboys, by the way, are scheduled to play the Steelers in 2016 at Heinz Field.
