OWINGS MILLS — Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl kicker Billy Cundiff is cashing in on his breakthrough season, agreeing to a five-year, $15 million contract.

He has yet to sign the contract, though, but no snags are expected.

The Ravens have been in talks with Cundiff over the past week with contract negotiations picking up over the past few days.

"I think it’ll come together," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said last week."I think Billy really wants to be here. I know we’re in negotiations with him right now, along with other guys. I’ll be very surprised if something doesn’t get done with Billy Cundiff, and I’ll be disappointed, but I think it’s going to happen."

Cundiff replaced a struggling Steve Hauschka a year ago and solidified the Ravens’ kicking situation.

He tied an NFL record with 40 touchbacks and connected on 26 of 29 field goals. He also converted all 39 of his extra points.

Cundiff played under a $1.01 million restricted tender last season, beating out former Pro Bowl kicker Shayne Graham in a training camp competition.

Now, the former journeyman kicker is the Ravens’ long-term answer in the kicking game.

He’s their first consistent kicker since the end of the Matt Stover era.
