Boykin "insulted" by candy bar trash talk

Candy bar?
Brandon Boykin isn't the Eagles biggest cornerback.

At 5-9, 182-pounds he's the smallest.

Boykin doesn't know if that's why Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who lists at 5-10, 186-pounds, chose to  call him the "candy bar" in this piece. Brown is no Megatron. Then again, Brown also indicated that Boykin, the rookie fourth-round pick, is the weak link in the Philly secondary.

"Candy bar?" Boykin said. "I guess it’s an insult. So take it as that."
