Jordan Stout Signs Rookie Contract With Baltimore Ravens

Jordan Stout is *officially* a Baltimore Raven, folks.

The Ravens announced Monday afternoon that the former Penn State football specialist has inked his rookie contract with the team. The terms of the deal haven’t been released yet.

Baltimore made Stout the first punter selected in the 2022 NFL Draft when it drafted him in the fourth round with the No. 130 overall pick, which is the earliest a punter has been taken since 2012.

Stout enters his first year with the Ravens with tremendous shoes to fill. He’s taking over as the team’s punter after Sam Koch, who was Baltimore’s punter since 2006, retired this offseason. In addition to handling punting duties, Stout will also succeed Koch as Justin Tucker’s field goal holder, according to a release sent out by the team.

We found out last month that Stout will don No. 11 to start his NFL career, and now with his contract signed, the strong-legged specialist is ready to roll with his new squad. The Ravens mandatory minicamp is currently taking place until June 16, and the team will kick off its preseason on Thursday, August 11.

When Stout takes the field for his NFL debut, he’ll become the second starting punter in the big leagues to hail from Penn State. Blake Gillikin, who signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2020, won the team’s starting job ahead of the 2021 season and has served in that role ever since.
