The Baltimore Ravens inked one in every of their very maintain forward of free company.
The crew signed tight cease Carve Boyle to a 3-three hundred and sixty five days contract extension price $18 million, with $10 million in guarantees, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday.
The vulnerable fifth-round protect change into once slated to hit the free agent market next week. With a dearth of tight ends hitting the delivery market, it’s seemingly Boyle’s upside would bear intrigued several teams.
The prospective of losing Boyle to a TE-needy crew helped push the diagram, and maybe added a couple of cash to his pocket. His three-three hundred and sixty five days contract figures match up carefully with what Jack Doyle bought in 2017 when the Colts tight cease inked a 3-three hundred and sixty five days, $18.9 million contend with $9.5 million guaranteed. Boyle will was the 15th absolute best paid tight cease within the NFL at $6 million per season, slotting straight within the lend a hand of Doyle.
Boyle’s payday is a nice one for a first charge cease who excels as a flee blocker but considerably struggles within the passing sport. In four seasons, Boyle compiled 75 complete receptions for 613 yards, with zero TDs. He caught staunch nine passes for 70 yards after Lamar Jackson took over the starting plan.
Re-signing Boyle is one other reminder that the Ravens offense will seemingly be a flooring-focused operation with Lamar Jackson in 2019.
