The Ravens informed veteran long-snapper, Morgan Cox, last week that they plan to part ways this offseason.
"Sad that it's over ... but eternally happy it happened." After a productive 11-year partnership, All-Pro LS Morgan Cox and the Ravens are parting ways. The Ravens informed the pending FA last week that they are going in a younger direction: https://t.co/eDa4JupGQf— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) January 25, 2021
Cox has been Baltimore’s starting long snapper since 2010, winning a Super Bowl in the process. Along with being a 4 time Pro Bowler, Cox was Baltimore’s only All-Pro representative this year.
The 35-year-old was also a part of the fan-favorite “Wolfpack”, alongside kicker Justin Tucker and punter Sam Koch. The trio had established themselves as one of the best special teams units in the league, and next year will be the first season in nine years that Ravens fans will not see the three on the field together.
Cox’s yearly cap hit was just over $1.2 million, with his five-year, $5.6 million contract wrapping up this season. According to Over The Cap, Cox was the ninth highest-paid long-snapper in the league. With the Ravens choosing to go in another direction, he will look to find a new deal. If Cox finds another team that’s willing to pay him, it will be the seventh contract of his career.
