Former Baltimore Ravens placekicker Matt Stover will be inducted into the Ravens' "Ring of Honor" this Sunday during halftime of the game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Stover was one of the original Baltimore Ravens who stayed with the team when the Cleveland Browns were moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996.

Stover played 19 years in the NFL, making 471 of 563 field goals (83.7%), with a long of 55 yards. Matt played for the Browns from 1991-95, the Ravens from 1996-2008 and the Indianapolis Colts in 2009. He was released by the Colts and was not signed by another team, despite believing he could still kick in the NFL.

Stover was a fan favorite in Baltimore, where the offenses have been historically "challenged," thereby relying on his accurate leg for a lot of their scoring. During one five-game stretch during the 2000 season when the Ravens went on to win Super Bowl 35, Stover was the main scoring threat for the team as they did not score an offensive touchdown in that span, yet still won two of them, mostly due to Matt's leg as well as the legendary defense.

Congratulations Matt!
