Ravens sign TE Nick Boyle to a two-year extension
The Baltimore Ravens have signed longtime tight end Nick Boyle to a two-year extension, the Ravens announced today. Boyle will remain a Raven through the 2023 season. This is the second contract extension Boyle has signed with the Ravens.
Boyle was originally drafted out of Delaware in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Boyle is a blocking tight end that can be an occasional threat in the receiving game. Boyle has good hands and is very sound technically.
Boyle was injured in week 10 of the 2020 season, it is a good sign that he will be on pace for the start of the regular season. Boyle plays a big part in the offense and has been a great team player. Boyle has four receiving touchdowns and 120 career receptions, not great but a lot of that was time spent as a third blocking tight end.
Here is the Ravens press release.
RAVENS SIGN TE NICK BOYLE TO CONTRACT EXTENSION The Baltimore Ravens on Friday signed TE Nick Boyle to a two-year contract extension, which keeps him under contract through the 2023 season. “Nick is a Raven, exactly the type of player deserving of this third contract,” Ravens executive vice president and general manager Eric DeCosta stated. “Ask his teammates, ask his coaches – he’s a backbone for this team. We are very happy for Nick and Kristina as we continue to build out our roster.” “I am extremely thankful to continue being a part of the Ravens,” Boyle said. “My family has made this place our home the past five years, and we couldn’t be happier to continue doing so. I truly love this organization and all it has done for me. I am working my hardest every day to get back on the field with my teammates.” A 2015 fifth-round draft pick by Baltimore, Boyle, 27, has played in 73 career games (50 starts), recording 120 receptions for 1,047 yards and four touchdowns. Since joining the Ravens in 2015, Boyle has helped the team establish the NFL’s No. 1 rushing attack (141.7 ypg) as one of the league’s premier blocking tight ends. Through nine games in 2020, before being placed on Injured Reserve (knee), Boyle tied a career high with two touchdown receptions, while posting 113 yards on 14 catches. In 2019, he recorded career highs in receiving yards (321) and receptions (31), helping the Ravens produce the league’s No. 1 scoring offense (33.2 ppg) and setting several single-season franchise records, including total touchdowns (64), points (531), rushing yards (3,296) and total net yards (6,521). This marks Boyle’s third contract with the team after initially signing a three-year extension in 2019.
