When the old Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore in 1996 and became the Ravens, K Matt Stover went with them. Thirteen seasons, one Super Bowl championship and many clutch field goals later, Stover might have to find another team.
Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome didn’t sound optimistic about Stover’s chances of staying with the team when he talked to the Baltimore Sun on Saturday:
- “He’s probably looking and we’re looking, too,” Newsome said as he was hustled away from the media center to watch offensive linemen go through combine drills. “I think that’s probably the best way of saying it.”
Stover, who is 41 and has made 83.7 percent of his field-goal attempts in 18 NFL seasons, said he wants to stay in Baltimore. Stover will handle contract negotiations without an agent, but he hasn’t heard from the Ravens, according to the Sun:
- “I feel we can work something out. … If they don’t want to sign me, I can’t change their mind. I’m just looking forward to the opportunity [to talk].”
