Baltimore Ravens Extend Justin Tucker Through 2027
The Baltimore Ravens and kicker Justin Tucker agreed to a contract extension on Monday, that will keep the most accurate kicker in NFL history in Baltimore through 2027. Tucker was set to become a free agent at the end of the 2022 season, but the four-year extension worth $24 million, $17.5 million guaranteed will keep Tucker in Baltimore until he is 38.
Tucker’s extension makes him the highest paid kicker in the NFL, and deservedly so. Since entering the league in 2012, Tucker has been as close to perfect as any kicker in NFL history. In nine seasons as the Ravens kicker, Tucker has made 91.1% of his field goals, with his best season coming in 2021 when he made a career high 94.6% of his field goal attempts, including a now NFL record 66-yard game winning field goal in week three against the Detroit Lions.
Tucker has yet to miss a field goal inside of 30-yards, and has never missed more then seven field goals in a season. Tucker, has also been automatic when it comes to extra points making 99% of his extra point attempts in his career.
A super bowl champion, a five-time Pro Bowler, and five-time All-Pro, Tucker has been the best player at his position over the last decade and a model of consistence at a position that relies so heavily on it.
