Drafted out of Delaware in the fifth round of last year’s NFL Draft, Boyle appeared in 11 games last season, mostly in a reserve role, and caught 18 passes for 153 yards. Blessed with tremendous size at 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, Boyle figured to be a part of the Ravens’ future plans alongside fellow rookie Maxx Williams.
But those plans are now on hold as Boyle is now set to miss a majority of his sophomore NFL season, assuming that the Ravens don’t decide to cut him. The use of PEDs is a serious offense in the NFL, and any major sport for that matter, and erasing the mark of being one who tested positive is a tough task.
Boyle himself hasn’t commented on the unfortunate news, but stay tuned to Campus Sports for any further updates!
