After rumors circulated speculating about Boykin transitioning to a tight end role, Harbaugh brought clarity to the situation. "Are you saying he's going to run some of the routes that TEs do? Well, he already does that. He'll be running routes like that, but I certainly wouldn't call him a TE. He's a WR, he's not a TE." Boykin hauled in 19 receptions for 266 yards and four touchdowns across 13 games for Baltimore during the 2020 regular season and will continue to operate as a wide receiver in 2021.
