The Baltimore Ravens officially activated WR Miles Boykin, WR Marquise Brown and WR James Proche from the COVID-19 list and waived TE Luke Willson on Saturday.

The Ravens also promoted DB Pierre Desir, QB Tyler Huntley and TE Eric Tomlinson to their active roster. 

Brown, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2019. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $11.8 million contract.

The Ravens have a fifth-year option to pick up on Brown in 2022.

In 2020, Brown has appeared in 13 games for the Ravens and caught 43 passes for 605 yards receiving and five touchdowns.

Willson, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,338,532 rookie contract with the Seahawks and re-signed to a one-year contract in 2017. 

The Lions elected to sign Willson to a one-year contract worth $2.5 million for the 2018 season. He signed briefly with the Raiders before being cut and later returning to the Seahawks in March.

Seattle elected to cut Willson loose a few weeks ago and he was later signed by the Ravens. 

In 2020, Willson has appeared in three games and caught one pass for 12 yards. 

Desir, 30, is a former fourth-round pick of the Browns back in 2014. He was waived by the Browns at the start of the 2016 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Chargers.

After a brief stint with the Chargers, Desir signed with the Seahawks and finished out the year in Seattle. He was waived by the Seahawks at the start of the 2017 season and later claimed by the Colts.

Desir re-signed with the Colts and agreed to a three-year deal worth up to $25 million with $12 million guaranteed last year. However, the Colts cut him loose back in March to avoid $3 million of his 2020 salary becoming guaranteed. 

From there, Desir signed on with the Jets but was released a few weeks ago and quickly signed to the Ravens’ practice squad. 

In 2020, Desir has appeared in 10 games for the Jets and Ravens and recorded 46 tackles, three interceptions, one defensive touchdown, a forced fumble and eight passes defended.

Huntley, 22, signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Utah back in April. He was among their final roster cuts coming out of training camp and re-signed to the practice squad. 

During his four-year college career, Huntley recorded 574 completions on 854 pass attempts (67.2 percent) for 7,351 yards, 46 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions, to go along with 389 rushing attempts for 1,146 yards (2.9 YPC) and 16 touchdowns.
