OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Ravens second-year receiver Miles Boykin plans to join quarterback Lamar Jackson and several other teammates in Florida for informal workouts while waiting for word on the NFL’s next move during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I was planning on going down there before all this stuff happened,” Boykin said on a video-conference call Tuesday. “But next week I’ll be down there training with those guys.”

To this point, Boykin has been playing catch with backup quarterback Trace McSorley around Baltimore.

“The fact that I have Trace here to be able to work with me is huge,” Boykin said.

Boykin will join Jackson, second-year receiver Marquise Brown and several others in Florida.

“We’re still finalizing it. There are going to be a lot of guys down there,” Boykin said. “There’s only so much you can do in (virtual) meetings without being able to go out on the field.”

Drafted in the third round of the 2019 draft out of Notre Dame, Boykin had 13 catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns as a rookie.
