Justin Tucker is the lone survivor of the Ravens' last championship and, believe it or not, the longest-tenured player in the Baltimore football organization and leading voice of the Flock Nation.
Still a young 33 years old but already considered the GOAT Kicker in NFL history, he's entering his 12th season and he got to the mic following Day 13 of the Ravens training camp on Wednesday, Aug. 9.
And the folks from BaltimoreRavens.com have everything he said transcribed for you!
Tucker spoke about his experience in the league, but how he still tries to improve on a monthly, weekly, daily, kick-by-kick basis. He also said that he enjoys learning from and performing at "different environments, stadiums, and field conditions," while claiming that he still "feels like a rookie," just "scratching the surface of his potential."
Tyler Ott, an eight-year NFL veteran, stepped in to replace Nick Moore after Moore's Achilles injury was confirmed right before training camp.
He will be working next to Tucker in 2023, and Ott has rapidly established his rhythm alongside punter Jordan Stout, who also adeptly serves as Tucker's holder and is now entering his second season in the NFL.
Ott's journey included a standout year in 2020 when he earned a Pro Bowl nod with the Seahawks, only to be sidelined in 2022 due to a shoulder injury, which painted a rather dark future in front of him as Seattle was dubious about extending him an offer to keep him in tow.
Of course, the Ravens came to the rescue and the rest is history (still to be made, we hope!)
Jordan "Humble" Stout is entering his sophomore season as a punter, said that "I'm pretty humble... but I'm a really good holder." Gotta love the man.
Punters, holders, kickers... they are not going to be plastered on teenager folders through Panini stickers, but you better believe in their abilities and skill sets to flip games in a minute.
And the Ravens, rest assured, surely have one of the best trios in the NFL covering those three roles entering the 2023 campaign.
