Ravens to Move in a Different Direction with Stover

According to the Baltimore Examiner, Matt Stover is no longer in the Ravens' plans for next season. It has been a great career for Matt and he is the only remaining player to make the move from Cleveland to our city, Baltimore.

Matt is the 3rd most accurate kicker of all time, the MOST accurate kicker of all time on grass fields as well as the Ravens all time leading scorer. He has also only missed 3 extra points his whole career.

Sad to see such a great person and great player like Matt leave our team, as we would not be the type of organization that we are today without his good ol' reliable right leg.

Thank you Matt for all the pressure kicks you have made that have led to some very much needed victories. You will always be remembered as one of the greatest Ravens of all time. We will never forget you infamous point to the sky after a kick. 

The only weird part is that it has been reported that the Jets were interested in bringing the 41 year old in? But they just resigned kicker Jay Feely, so retirement is most likely the answer

So where does this leave us now? Do we resign the kid, Steve Hauschka, who is currently one of our free agents? Or do we look else where?

Well, it will be hard to replace a player and person like Matt was for this team.
