The Ravens have re-signed the most accurate kicker in the history of the NFL. Justin Tucker has reportedly signed a four-year extension that will make him the highest paid kicker in league history. The exact amount of money Tucker will receive is not known at time of writing.
PFF’s Ari Meirov reported the news via Twitter on Monday.
Tucker has become a prolific special teams player since entering the league in 2012. He was signed by the Ravens in 2012 after going undrafted in that year’s NFL Draft. That same year, he and the team won Super Bowl XLVII over the San Francisco 49ers.
Among Tucker’s accomplishments are owning the most accurate kicking percentage in NFL history at 91.1 percent. In 2021, Tucker kicked the longest field goal ever (66 yards) as time expired to beat the Detroit Lions, just his second field goal ever that came beyond 60 yards. He owns five First Team All-Pro selections, five Pro Bowl nods and was named to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.
