Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Miles Boykin is among several players on the team preparing to work out with star quarterback Lamar Jackson in South Florida.
The coronavirus pandemic has obviously limited the amount of work that players and coaches have been able to get in since the conclusion of the 2019 NFL season, with virtual meetings being the preferred communication method thus far.
However, it appears that Boykin and others are gearing up to start training together in preparation for the new season, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic:
Ravens WR Miles Boykin said he’ll be going down to South Florida to work with QB Lamar Jackson, WR Marquise Brown and others next week. Boykin has been working out in the Baltimore area with Trace McSorley.
Boykin had 13 receptions for 198 yards and three touchdowns during his rookie season in Baltimore.
Despite the unique circumstances surrounding this offseason, expectations are still going to be very high for the Ravens after finishing with the league’s best record last season.
However, that didn’t translate into playoff success, as Jackson and company were ousted in the AFC Divisional Round by the Tennessee Titans.
That defeat should give the Ravens plenty of motivation heading into the season, and they should be one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl alongside Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
The two teams are set to square off in Week 3 of the regular season, with the Chiefs visiting Baltimore for a Monday Night Football showdown at M&T Bank Stadium.
