PITTSBURGH — Former Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd has landed a job with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers added Boyd to their off-season roster on Friday. Boyd was taken by the New York Jets in the sixth round of the 2014 draft but was cut during training camp. The 24-year-old Boyd passed for 11,904 yards and 107 touchdowns in four seasons at Clemson. He ran for 1,165 yards and 26 touchdowns during his career with the Tigers.

The signing reunites Boyd with Clemson teammate and current Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant. The two played together for the Tigers from 2011-13.
