Baltimore Ravens activate tight end Nick Boyle

NFL: Preseason-Baltimore Ravens at New Orleans Saints Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

Baltimore Ravens tight end Nick Boyle just completed his 10 game suspension by the NFL for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy and the team has lifted him to the 53 man roster.

The Ravens have been struggling at the tight end position mainly due to injuries as Ben Watson and Maxx Williams are on injured reserve and Crockett Gillmore has been out in the last four games due to a thigh injury. That leaves Dennis Pitta and Darren Waller seeing the most time at tight end but neither can block effectively in the running game or in the passing game.

Boyle however can block very well and Pro Football Focus rated Boyle as the best rookie tight end during the 2015 season. The Ravens desperately need another weapon on offense to help compliment Pitta at tight end so this may be the boost the unit needs.

Boyle promised earlier this week that he won’t be suspended again. Let’s hope that he can keep his promise.
