The Baltimore Ravens said a heartfelt goodbye to veteran long snapper Morgan Cox in late January after 11 years. The move was more about moving forward with youth than it was about clearing cap space but now it looks like the four-time Pro Bowler will be continuing his playing career with a familiar foe.

Cox played for the Ravens for 11 seasons. Baltimore is choosing to go on a younger direction with Nick Moore.
It’s a homecoming for Cox, a Tennessee native.
Cox was often overlooked third member of the Ravens star-studded specialist trio alongside future Hall of Fame kicker Justin Tucker and legendary punter Sam Koch famously known as ‘The Wolf Pack’. However, he was just as integral to Baltimore’s special teams dominance over the last decade-plus as either of his close friends and former teammates.
The former undrafted gem will be returning to his home-state where he played his high school and college ball to play for the Titans. He is fresh of an All-Pro season and even though he’s set to turn 35 in next month, he hasn’t shown any signs of decline.
The Ravens are moving forward with another former undrafted free agent at long snapper in Nick Moore who has spent the vast majority of his two-year on their practice squad. He got his first taste of regular-season action in Week 12 last season against the Pittsburgh Steelers while Cox was on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
