Ravens look at kickers, but don't sign any

The Baltimore Ravens kicked the tires on a couple of kickers today, but afterward coach John Harbaugh suggested that the team will stay the course with Steve Hauschka.

Mike Nugent and Billy Cundiff both tried out at the team’s training complex, but no signings were announced. Harbaugh said on his weekly radio show on WBAL that he still had faith in Hauschka.

“Steve works really hard, he’s really got a lot of talent. He’s our best option,” Harbaugh said, per the Baltimore Sun.

Hauschka may keep his job this week, but he appears to be on a short leash. He missed a field goal that would have given the Ravens a win over the Vikings three weeks ago, and on Sunday he missed a field goal that would have brought the Ravens to within one score of the Bengals.

Many more misses, and the Ravens will have to do more than just look at kickers. They’ll have to sign one.

    Hang in there, Hauschka.

    They’ve got plenty of time. They play the Browns this weekend and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to come down to a field goal.

    I like Harbaugh a lot more than Billick; but letting go of Stover was a very big mistake! Hell Stevie Wonder could see than! Indianapolis laughs everytime they run Stover out onto the field!

    Not only did Indy get our team but we handed them the best kicker in recent memory! Hauschka is ok until the pressure is on. Pressure bursts pipes! Stover excells under pressure!

    Stover is only 6 for 6 in two games for the colts.

    “Kick the tires?” Again? Really?
    Seriously, how many times do I have to read that line on here…Come on guys. Don’t get lazy.
    How about “test drove” or “took for a spin around the block?”
    And if you don;t want the new car schtick, how about just “auditioned” or “tried out?”
    Thanks so much.

    Maybe the Ravens should call David Beckham.
