Ravens Reach Deal with Billy Cundiff
The Ravens and Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff have reached a 5 year, $15 million contract. The 30 year old from Valley Center, California made 26 of 29 field goals this season with a long of 49 yards and made all 39 extra points. Cundiff recorded 40 touchbacks this season leading the league and tied the all time record held by Mitch Berger while playing for the Minnesota Vikings in 1998. Berger set the record when the kickoffs started from the 35-yard line while Cundiff set the record from kicking off from the 30-yard line. Cundiff averaged a remarkable 71.1 yards on his kickoffs and had touchbaks on 51.3% of his kickoffs.
