    Justin Tucker

    Interesting thought, the Ravens will most likely go with Billy Cundiff which means they cut Tucker. He looks really good ( yes I know it's preseason ) and I think he would easily beat out Suisham any thoughts ?

    Kicker battles are my guilty pleasure of the preseason.

    Who can kick the farthest? Let's watch.

    Why not bring Tucker to challenge Suicham? I look forward to Cundiff missing more field goals though...

    The vibe here in town is that Cundiff is gonna' be putting on the suit and interviewing for a new job.

    Seems like we've got our own replacement for Suisham already on the roster...
