The Baltimore Ravens have locked in Justin Tucker for four more seasons.

“Best kicker in the game. He’s been a weapon for them, and it’s smart of them to keep him,” said former New York Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum. The extension is reflective of that, as he is the highest-paid kicker in the league.

After signing a four-year $20 million extension back in 2019, Tucker signed another four-year extension with the Ravens, tying him to the franchise through the 2027 season. “I worked with John Harbaugh for over a decade,” said former Philadelphia Eagles executive Joe Banner. “Was passionate about ST and he will always have a top-three field goal kicker. For the next four years, he now has the top-one.”

Over his career, Tucker has been lights out for the Ravens. In 2021, Tucker went 35-of-37 on field goals while being perfect on his 32 extra point attempts. Tucker also showcased what kind of weapon he is by making a game-winning 66-yard field goal against the Detroit Lions in week three. Along with that, Tucker boasts the best field goal percentage in the history of the NFL, having converted 91.1% of his field goals over his 10 NFL seasons.

Tucker’s success isn’t exemplified by just one season. He has had three of the top four seasons in Total Points by a kicker since 2016. Over that time, he has made 100 FGs under 40 yards and only missed two. Along with that, Tucker is also 30-36 on FGs 50 or more yards. Tucker is also lights out when the opposing coach ices him. Across the league, kickers only made 15 out of 26 attempts (58%) over a five-year window when they were iced and took a practice kick. Tucker, on the other hand, made four out five attempts after taking a practice kick, with his only miss coming from 65 yards.
