The Ravens kept busy during the free agent cycle on Wednesday afternoon and re-signed punter Sam Koch to a two-year extension. 

Koch was going to enter the final year of his contract in the 2020 season, a year that would've paid him $3.25 million. Now, he'll have another two years of security under his belt. 

With the Ravens up against the salary cap, the terms of the deal - which haven't been released - could try and give the Ravens some more breathing room ahead of a tight 2020 season.

Koch, who will be 38 in August, averaged 46.4 yards-per-punt in 2019, which placed him eighth in the NFL for 2019. Koch, by nature of the Ravens' offense, punted just 40 times last season.

He's made one Pro Bowl and was once a Second-Team All-Pro selection, both in 2015.

The holder for kicker Justin Tucker as well, Koch and long-snapper Morgan Cox make up one of the Ravens' best and most popular position groups on the roster. The trio known as "the Wolfpack" has been one of, if not the, most consistent special teams groups in the league.

Now the longest-tenured Raven, Koch will enter his 15th season with Baltimore in 2020. And now, health permitting, he'll play his 16th and 17th straight seasons in Baltimore too.
