LS Morgan Cox Named To Pro Bowl

Baltimore Ravens LS Morgan Cox has been named to the 2016 Pro Bowl roster, the NFL announced Tuesday afternoon.

It marks Cox's first-career Pro Bowl nod, with him joining P Sam Koch and G Marshal Yanda as Ravens representatives who will play in this year's game.

A six-year veteran, Cox was chosen by Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid as a "need" player for the Pro Bowl roster. (Reid's staff will coach in the NFL's annual All-Star game.) The NFL stipulates that the head coach of each team chooses a "need" player, and those players must be long snappers. 

This past season, Cox competed in every Ravens game, snapping on all 74 punts, 40 field goal attempts (33 successful) and 29 PATs (all converted). He helped Koch earn his first-career Pro Bowl invite after posting 46.7 gross and 42.9 net averages (ninth and second in the NFL, respectively).

Since 2012, Cox has also snapped for K Justin Tucker, who ranks as the second-most accurate kicker in NFL history (130-of-148 for 87.8%).

During the 2015 campaign, Tucker became the fastest kicker in NFL history to reach 500 points (60 games) and make 100 field goals (50 games).
