Kicking battle underway

Its going to be interesting to see how the kicking duel plays out in the days ahead since both Billy Cundiff and rookie Justin Tucker have started a tough battle in the first days of camp.
The pre-season games should play a role in determining who the kicker is when the Ravens start the season. Would they get rid of a veteran to go to a rookie? That would be a gamble, unless Tucker looked so good in the pre-season that the team felt comfortable making the move.
So far, though, the two kickers have been stating their cases and doing it well.
Well, its been all that we hoped it would be, because both kickers are kicking well, and the exciting part of it is that every day is different, said special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg. And we put them in different situations, andyou have so many different scenarios that come up during the course of the season that you can actually practice rather than just lining up and kicking.
Rosburg said the battle will continue and go to a new level when the Ravens go to Atlanta for the first pre-season game next week. But the Ravens also play twice at home and once more on the road.
Pre-season games are coming up, so thats always good to kick in our own stadium and in other places, so you change the environment a little bit, Rosburg said.
In addition, he said theyre working with two different types of kickers. Ones a veteran whos got his own style and the others a rookie whom the Ravens are trying to teach some stuff to since this would be his first year in the NFL.
One guy knows what he wants to do and is trying to perfect it, Rosburg said. The other guys is learning how he wants to kick.
The battle is on.

Baltimore Ravens Roundup: Roster spot questions begin

Kick off your Wednesday with the latest Baltimore Ravens news.

1. Chris Board is making a run for a starting spot at linebacker for the Ravens, according to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec. Board and Kenny Young will reportedly make a run for the starting spot opposite Patrick Onwuasor, but Board is pulling ahead of the pack Zrebiec says. The spot is up for grabs since the Ravens lost C.J. Mosley in free agency.

2. Also looking to earn a roster spot is wide receiver, Jordan Lasley. After training during the offseason with Lamar Jackson, many expected Lasley to show up to minicamp ahead of the pack, but after making some drops, Zrebiec says Lasley "will need to pick up his game" if he wants to get a spot on the Ravens roster.


Looking Ahead:

July 15: 4 p.m. deadline to get a long-term deal done with designated franchise tag players.

That’s my goal.”
