Ravens punter Jordan Stout finalizes rookie deal; just 3 picks unsigned ahead of mandatory minicamp

Ravens rookie punter Jordan Stout finalized his rookie contract Monday, leaving the team with just three unsigned draft picks ahead of this week’s mandatory minicamp.

Outside linebacker David Ojabo (second round), offensive tackle Daniel Faalele (third) and cornerback Jalyn Armour-Davis (fourth) are the only players in the Ravens’ 11-man draft class who have yet to sign. The team’s three-day minicamp starts Tuesday in Owings Mills, but all three are expected to agree to four-year deals this summer.

With punter Sam Koch’s offseason retirement, Stout, a fourth-round pick from Penn State, is expected to start this season. He averaged 46.5 yards per punt last season and led the nation in average hang time (4.36 seconds), according to Pro Football Focus. At No. 130 overall, he became the highest punter drafted since 2019.

“You watch Jordan, and he reminds you a lot of Sam coming out,” coach John Harbaugh said after the draft. “The leg strength is a part of it. A lot of guys have big legs, but they don’t have all the other pieces. So you look in terms of the footwork, the technique, they get the ball out quick, the hands, the efficiency, where the drop goes, the ability to control the punt, right, left and then the depth of it. Those are all things that we look [at] with Jordan, and it reminds you a lot of Sam.”
