Ex-Ravens Kicker Matt Stover Retiring

Former placekicker for the Baltimore Ravens, Matt Stover, will be announcing his retirement this afternoon at a press conference to be held at the team's Training Complex in Owings Mills, Maryland at 3pm. Stover was the last former Cleveland Browns player to leave the team when the Ravens choose not to retain him after the 2008 season. He played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2009 but no team signed him and he did not play in the 2010 season.

Stover holds every kicking and scoring record for the franchise and was one of the league's most accurate kickers in history. His only knock was not being able to hit the long kicks, but he hit a few from just over 50 yards to win critical games for the Ravens in his career. Kickoffs were also an issue, especially towards the end of his career, when both the Ravens and Colts had another player on their rosters handle the kickoff duties.

The Ravens have mentioned that they plan to make another announcement once Stover makes his retirement official. The expectation is that the Ravens will be adding him to their M&T Bank Stadium 'Ring of Honor,' alongside other greats such as Jonathan Ogden, Peter Boulware, Michael McCrary, Earnest Byner, plus former owner Art Modell as well as a group of Baltimore Colts that include Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry and Lenny Moore among others.
