Ravens meet with punters at Senior Bowl, could Sam Koch's job be in jeopardy?

New, comments

Ravens met with punters from Auburn and Alabama.

Looking at his whole body of work, Sam Koch didn't have a bad year in 2013.

He averaged 46 yards per punt and hit 27 punts inside the 20-yard line. However, his net punting average was just 38.9, he had a punt blocked and he had some moments that made you think it was uncharacteristic for him to be punting like this.

If you noticed this, then the Ravens did too. And it seems the Ravens are doing their due diligence as a result.

OK, never mind the fact the Ravens met with Gabe Jackson, that's for another post. But the Ravens are interested in two separate punters.

That's definitely something to put Koch on notice with. Would the Ravens draft a punter? Maybe. If they do, that would make it certain that Koch is on his way out. If not, one could still be brought in as an undrafted free agent.

And then it would be a training camp competition, similar to the one Justin Tucker and Billy Cundiff had a couple of years ago.
