Since joining the Ravens in 2015, Boyle has helped the team establish the NFL’s No. 1 rushing attack 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.
“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.”MORE NEWS: COVID In Maryland: Hospitalizations Under 800 First Time Since November
