Ravens sign third-round wide receiver Miles Boykin to rookie deal


With rookies reporting to Owings Mills for the start of training camp Wednesday, the Ravens reached an agreement with their final draft pick who wasn’t yet under contract.
Third-round wide receiver Miles Boykin signed his four-year contract and is slotted to receive a signing bonus just shy of $857,000 as the 93rd overall pick of April’s draft. His 2019 salary cap number will be roughly $709,000 and his total deal is worth up to $3.377 million, according to OverTheCap.com.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Notre Dame product missed a large portion of spring workouts with a hamstring injury, but he did participate in the mid-June mandatory minicamp as he aims to carve out a meaningful role in the Baltimore passing game. Boykin’s frame and athleticism make him an enticing outside option to contrast more undersized receiver options such as veteran Willie Snead and 2019 first-round pick Marquise Brown.
“He’s a really intriguing player from Notre Dame — a size, speed receiver with really tremendous physical gifts, an outside vertical guy,” said general manager Eric DeCosta during April’s draft. “He’s very physical to the football, just a big man. We think his skill set complements our offense extremely well.”
The Ravens will hold their first full-squad training camp practice on July 25.
