Today Ed Bouchette of the Post Gazette answered questions about everything Pittsburgh and there was a question regarding Brandon Boykin that was interesting.
Ed states that Brandon Boykin may have a career ending hip injury. Here is the transcript.
Dave: Ed, saw over weekend that coach Lake attended a fantasy camp and admitted Steelers would have taken Jackson over Burns. Why would he admit this now? Also he said that Boykin had a hip problem which is why he keeps getting released. Any truth to all this?
Ed Bouchette: Yes, to both. I and Gerry Dulac have been writing and saying since the day of the draft that the Steelers were prepared to draft Jackson right until the Bengals drafted him in the spot before them.
I also heard recently the same thing about Boykin, that he had hip problems that might end his career.
