Mustangs Sign Experienced Pro QB Boyd
MILWAUKEE (February 3, 2012) - The Milwaukee Mustangs are thrilled to announce the assignment of veteran quarterback Shane Boyd (6'1, 220, Kentucky) to the 2012 roster. Boyd joins the talented quarterback duo of Gino Guidugli and Blake Bolles already in place for the upcoming season.
Boyd most recently spent time with the Sacramento Mountain Lions, formerly the California Redwoods, of the United Football League in 2010. He started six games for the team during the 2009 season in which he passed for 891 yards and three touchdowns.
The dual-threat quarterback brings a slew of NFL experience to Milwaukee. In 2005, Boyd broke into the professional ranks with the Tennessee Titans. He has spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans, and Indianapolis Colts. Boyd was a member of the Cologne Centurians (NFL Europe) in 2005 when he broke the league's all-time record for rushing yards in a single season by a quarterback. Prior to his pro career, Boyd started 16 games for Kentucky, passing for nearly 3,000 yards and rushing for 845.
