The Boyd that was signed by the Argos in March is a religious man who was married in January 2009 and changed his workout schedule drastically in the off-season at home in Aurora, Colo. Boyd often began training at midnight, going until 4 a.m., so his schedule would balance more with his wife Brittany's work hours.
"I wanted to spend time with my family (his wife and a cousin) when they got off work," Boyd said. "When they went to sleep I went to work out. It planned out well."
That passion on the part of the 6-foot-1, 214-pound Boyd impressed Barker. Now, Boyd wants to re-pay Barker's faith. The decision to hang on to Boyd looked a lot smarter when running back DeCori Birmingham retired suddenly on Wednesday.
