The Ravens have an enviable kicking situation with kicker Justin Tucker and punter Sam Koch.
After beating out Billy Cundiff as a rookie last summer, Tucker connected on 30 of 33 field goals. That included four kicks from 50 yards or beyond. Plus, he hit the game-winning field goal in double overtime to defeat the Denver Broncos in an AFC divisional round playoff game.
A former Pro Bowl alternate, Koch had a career-high 47.1 average and a 40.8 net last season.
So, acquiring competition to push them in training camp isn't an easy bit of salesmanship for the Ravens.
“It will be pretty tough to find competition for those two guys right now," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. "There aren’t too many guys that want to come here and kick or punt. I don’t think they see it as being a very fruitful opportunity. But, we will find somebody to help us – somebody that wants a chance to kick or punt in the National Football League. I’d like a guy who could do both, if possible – punt and kick. You’d love to have a lefty, so you can see how hard that is to come across. But, we will get the best guy we can.”
