Miles Boykin is the only player on this list not on an expiring contract. Boykin still has one year remaining on his rookie deal and is technically under contract through the 2022 season.

But that doesn’t mean he’ll make it that far.

A third-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Boykin has been handed plenty of opportunities in his NFL career to this point.

The former Notre Dame standout played in all 32 games in his first two seasons, starting 24 of them, but he failed to make the impact that the Ravens were looking for.

Boykin has just 33 catches for 470 yards in 35 career games. More often than not, he’s been rendered an afterthought in the Ravens’ offense.

And following a number of offseason additions at the position, Boykin was even considered to be on the roster bubble heading into the 2021 season.

An injury kept him sidelined for the summer and landed him on the injured reserve to start the year. And even though he’s returned, he’s barely been able to find his way onto the field.

Boykin has just one catch for six yards this season. He’s played a grand total of eight offensive snaps, and although he’s been a regular on special teams, the Ravens have other players who can fill his role.

Fourth-round rookie Tylan Wallace has also been a core special teamer. Devin Duvernay and James Proche offer value both on offense and on specials. There simply isn’t any need for Boykin on the roster.

Whether he’s traded or outright released, it would be a surprise if Boykin was on the team in 2022.
