Ravens Waive Steve Hauschka

Jarrett CarterAnalyst INovember 17, 2009

Let Steve Hauschka land on his feet somewhere else will a fresh start and the rattle fully out of his spirit . The Ravens are chasing the playoffs and genuinely have no room or time to coddle a position that, historically, has been paramount to the team’s success.

Oh, and in case you were wondering about Matt Stover? From the Ravens story:

This all takes place just days before longtime Ravens kicker Matt Stover’s return to Baltimore since joining the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 14 because Adan Vinatieri went down with of a knee injury.

After spending 19 years with the franchise, dating back to its days in Cleveland, Stover made no secret that he wanted to continue his career in Baltimore when his contract ran out after a 2008 campaign that saw him convert 27 of 33 field goals during the regular season and all four of his playoff attempts.

But in an attempt to save a roster spot that Hauschka occupied last year as a kickoff specialist, Stover was not brought in and an offseason battle between Hauschka and undrafted free agent Graham Gano ensued.

Meanwhile, Stover, 41, is currently 6-of-6 for Indianapolis with a long of 40 yards.

Nice one, Duffy. Tell the truth and shame the devil; even on the team’s website.
