Ravens Lock Up Star Kicker


The Baltimore Ravens are getting four more years of the league's best kicker. 

The Ravens have signed Justin Tucker to a four-year contract extension worth $24 million. $17.5 million is guaranteed, with an $11.5 million signing bonus. This makes Tucker the highest-paid kicker in NFL history. 

Well deserved. 

The thirty-two-year-old had 94.6% field-goal percentage (1st in NFL), a 100 XP% (Tied-1st in NFL), 137 points (Tied-4th in NFL), and the longest field goal made at 66 yards in the 2021 season. 

Over the last 10 seasons, Justin Tucker has made 326 field goals. No one else even comes close, with Greg Zuerlein in second with 264. 

Tucker is also a remarkable clutch performer, as witnessed several times last year. Since 2000, Tucker has a field goal percentage of 100% (16-16) in the final minute of regulation. That's best in the NFL, with Ryan Longwell second with 92.9% (13-14).
