The Special Teams of the Giants are being upgraded. Gradually
Boykin’s deal will create competition at depth receiver and on special teams as he essentially becomes a veteran minimum player. Boykin only had four targets and three receptions for a total of 17 yards in the previous season.

He is far more well-known in the special teams division, though. With the Pittsburgh Steelers past season, the 6’4′′ wide out played a career-high 316 special team snaps and contributed significantly as a punt team gunner.

Boykin has good speed and physical qualities that make him a potential asset on special teams. Having speed off the edge will be important because of the new NFL kickoff coverage regulations, which are likely to increase the number of returns.

Gunner Olszewski, who averaged 11.9 yards per return on 23 punt returns and even brought one in for a score, was also acquired by the Giants from the Steelers during the previous season.

Although the Giants have been requesting more special team assistance in recent years, Olszewski and Boykin are two reliable players who ought to help them advance in 2024.
