The Jets had many problems last season but their special teams unit performed well. Kicker Jason Myers really surprised people and he made the pro bowl. Return specialist Andre Roberts is joining Myers at the Pro Bowl. Boyer joined the team in 2016.
Boyer joined the Jets after a four-year tenure in Indianapolis (2012-15), where he aided a Colts special teams unit that ranked in the top 10 league-wide during that span in net punting average (third), kickoff return average (fourth), kickoff touchbacks (fourth) and field goal percentage (seventh), despite using three different players as primary punt returners and four different kick returners in his four seasons.
Prior to joining the Colts, Boyer was twice a training camp intern, first for the Cleveland Browns (2009) and later for the New York Giants (2010).
Before entering the coaching ranks, Boyer played linebacker and was a standout on special teams for the Miami Dolphins (1994), Jacksonville Jaguars (1995-2000) and Cleveland Browns (2001-03). He served as a special teams captain for both the Jaguars and Browns and led the Browns in tackles in 2002 and 2003. Boyer was a two-time member of USA Today’s All-Joe Team, once as a linebacker and once as a special teams player. In 2002, his teammates selected him for the Cleveland Browns Unsung Hero Award.
