In “The Wolf Pack” The Ravens Trust
Justin Tucker, Sam Koch and Morgan Cox are three players that are critically important to the Ravens. The special teams trio known as “The Wolf Pack,” thanks to the creativity of Tucker, is an underrated part of the Ravens team.
Cox is the long snapper for the purple and black. If you don’t know his name, that’s actually a good thing. The long snapper only gets attention when he screws up. Cox is incredibly consistent. His snaps are quick and tight. Cox may be the most underrated player on the entire roster. Field goals can win games, but only if the snap and the hold is good.

Cox has been with the Ravens since 2015. Last season he was a long snapper in the Pro Bowl. Cox came to Baltimore as an undrafted free agent. He just signed a five-year extension with the Ravens.
Sam Koch is one of the most consistent punters in the game; which is why he’s also one of the most well paid punters in the game. Koch holds team records for the longest punt, most punts, and the best average yards per punt. This is a player who has been with the Ravens for 10 seasons.
Koch was a Pro Bowl punter last season. He had 74 punts for 3,454 yards, and averaged 46.7 yards per kick. Koch pinned 29 punts inside the 20 yard line last season. Koch has had 280 punts inside the 20 in his career.
Koch changes field position for the Ravens. Punting is something you never want to do. Sometimes it is your only choice though. Without a good punter the field position battle will sink you. Koch is delivers for the Ravens.
Finally, we have Tucker. Tucker is one of the best kickers in the NFL. He makes more guaranteed money than any other kicker. Tucker is the second most accurate kicker in NFL history.
He is known for game winning kicks. He won the 2012 divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos. The ball was practically frozen and he nailed the double overtime field goal. In 2013, he made a 61 yard kick to beat the Detroit Lions.
Special teams are a special part of any winning team. The Ravens have three of the best special teams players in the league. These are three players that may not get all the glory, but who are essential to the Ravens.
