The Baltimore Ravens announced that they have activated TE Nick Boyle after serving his 10-game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy and waived CB Asa Jackson in a corresponding roster move.
Boyle, 23, was taken in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft. He’s in the second year of his four-year, $2.44 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $525,000 in 2016.
In 2015, Boyle appeared in 11 games for the Ravens and recorded 18 receptions for 153 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
Jackson, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2012. He spent the first three years of his career in Baltimore before he was waived as the team cut their roster down to 53 players.
Jackson was waived with the injury designation before reverting to the team’s injured reserve list. Baltimore wound up waiving him not long after, but he managed to catch on to the Bengals practice squad.
The Cardinals signed him to a future/reserve contract this past January before cutting him loose coming out of the preseason. The Ravens later signed him to their practice squad and was eventually promoted to the active roster.
In 2015, Jackson appeared in four games for the Ravens and recorded just one tackle. He has not appeared in a game this season.
