Ravens tight end Nick Boyle had an unexpected reporter grilling him on Friday’s video conference: Mark Andrews.
With the help of a team spokesman, the Pro Bowl tight end hopped on a Zoom call after practice to ask how Boyle became such a good blocker (“I don’t think there’s anyone better than you”) and about Boyle’s relationship with, well, himself.
Boyle took the first question seriously, explaining that his high school football team’s triple-option offense prioritized blocking.
“The second part of the question, Mark, I think we have a very good relationship,” Boyle said, doing his best to suppress a grin. “Sometimes you can get annoying. Sometimes you need to grow up a little bit. But I love coming to work and seeing you every day. I think we have a really good relationship, and I think we have the most fun in the building and have the best bond, strongest bond, in the building, for sure.”
“Love you, brother,” Andrews said.
It was just another day at work for the Ravens' tight ends, who in recent years have been more like a fraternity than a group of coworkers.
