Koch to remain a Raven

Jamie Squire

John Harbaugh addressed rumors that punter Sam Koch would be a salary cap casualty.

As the sixth highest paid punter in the league and at a salary of $2.2million, Ravens punter Sam Koch had been of some interest as a possible salary cap cut. Tuesday, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh squashed those rumors during a football tutorial with local reporters.

Harbaugh was very direct by saying:

Sam is our punter. I’ve seen a lot of speculation about that being a cap casualty, but I don’t anticipate that being the case at all. Sam doesn’t make that much for one thing – just ask him. Sam’s a heck of a punter

The Ravens would save $1.2 million by cutting Koch. However, they would lose a player that holds several Ravens' franchise records in most career punt yards (29,029 yards), longest career punt (74 yards) and highest career yards per punt average (44.8 yards).

Koch had one of his best statistical seasons in 2013 with 90 punts, 4138 yards and a 46.0 yard per punt average. Hopefully 2014 is a down year for Koch as the offense is being revamped with new players and a new scheme from former Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak.
