Analysis: Prior to last week, Morgan Cox was just a second string long snapper on a team in the midst of their second straight kicking competition. Now that the Ravens have waived veteran Matt Katula, Cox is the starter for the purple and black this season.
In his college career, Cox snapped for every Volunteer punt and kick for three years straight. In his sophomore season, Tennessee kicker Daniel Lincoln earned All-American honors as a freshman converting 21 of 29 field goals and 52 of 53 PATs.
2010 Outlook: John Harbaugh complimented to Cox when the Ravens announced they had waived Katula. Unless he’s get banged up, he’s going to be the starting long snapper this season.
