The Ravens announced that they have agreed to a two-year extension with TE Nick Boyle. Boyle was entering the last year of his contract that was signed in 2019 but is now under contract through 2023.
Baltimore is giving TE Nick Boyle a 2-year, $13M extension with $10.5M fully guaranteed upon signing, source said. He was due $5.5M in 2021 on his previous contract. A big vote of confidence from the #Ravens for Boyle, who suffered a serious injury last year. https://t.co/kutgWAVMjh— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 29, 2021
Extending Boyle will help create some much-needed cap space for Baltimore as free agency looms.
Before this 2-year deal, Boyle had one more year left on his contract and was carrying a $7.8 million cap hit in 2021.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 29, 2021
As one of the best blockers at his position, Boyle has been a key cog to the Ravens’ rushing attack that broke the single-season rushing record in 2019 and finished first in rushing yards in 2020. Boyle’s 2020 season was unfortunately cut short after suffering a knee injury against the Patriots in Week 10.
While known for his top-end blocking ability, Boyle has also developed into a solid target for QB Lamar Jackson, particularly on shorter routes. Baltimore is hopeful that Boyle will be back in time for the start of the 2021 season to rejoin fellow TE Mark Andrews.
