New Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Brandon Boykin on Sunday clarified his comments that Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly is "uncomfortable around grown men of our culture."

The Steelers on Saturday acquired Boykin, considered a top-shelf slot corner, from the Eagles for a conditional fifth-round pick in 2016.

"He can't relate and that makes him uncomfortable," Boykin told of Kelly in a text message. "He likes total control of everything, and he don't like to be uncomfortable. Players excel when you let them naturally be who they are, and in my experience that hasn't been important to him."

Boykin said his differences with Kelly were based on lack of communication. Basically, he felt ignored.
