Actually Hopkins and Hocker were before Lutz. Hocker beat out Hopkins (who has gone on to have a solid career with Washington) then Hocker was terrible so mid season we signed Kai Forbath and he finished that season. Next season we brought in Conner Barth to compete with Forbath and Forbath won only to be cut after Lutz workout.The crazy thing is we had 2 kickers the whole preaseason battling it out, one which was Dustin Hopkins. Sean went with Zac Hocket after the preseason came to end. Then got Will Lutz to come try out and immediately released Hocker just after a tryout

That is crazy thinking the Ravens had these two amazing kickers, hopefully we can look back in a few years and think man we had the two best punters on our roster LOL and we had to stash one on injured reserve to keep him!Thats right
I knew hopkins and Hocker came before Lutz as I said.
I just didn't remember hocker lasting half the season lol.
It was forbath that got released after the Lutz tryout. Which is why I remembered thinking that, that was crazy.
Forbath didnt do bad with us, the year prior after signing on.
I think I remember Sean stating in an interview one time that Lutz had one of the best tryouts he has ever seen.
Thank God for Harbaugh
Its actually crazy to think that at one point the Ravens had the 2 best kickers in the league.
Imagine cutting the 2nd best kicker in the league lol.
I mean i know he wasn't at the time he got cut. He had to work on some trajectory issues, but you could just see the potential oozing from him.
Lutz is fearless man, complete ice in his veins. There is never a moment too big for him, and thats the best trait to have as a kicker.
You cant teach that
Appreciate the refresher
