Eagles trade corner Brandon Boykin to Steelers for conditional fifth-round draft pick

The Pittsburgh Steelers acquired cornerback Brandon Boykin from the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade where the Steelers sent them a conditional fifth-round draft pick in the 2016 draft. The fifth-round pick can turn into a fourth-rounder based on playing time. Boykin is a former fourth-round draft pick from Georgia. He has seven career interceptions and 32 pass deflections. Boykin is slightly undersized, but has a 40-inch vertical leap. He's entering the final year of his contract. He intercepted one pass last season.
