Longhorns Legend Justin Tucker: Ravens’ New Highest-Paid Kicker in NFL History

Tucker agreed to a new four-year extension with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday.

Former Texas Longhorns kicker Justin Tucker is widely considered among the best kickers of all-time. His proclivity for clutch kicks and game-winning field goals has earned him that title, and most recently a brand new extension. 

Tucker and the Baltimore Ravens on Monday agreed to a four-year, $24 million contract extension, with $17.5 million guaranteed and a $11.5 million signing bonus. Tucker's new extension officially makes him the highest-paid kicker in NFL history, a title most believe he richly deserves.

In 2021 Tucker would nail 35 out of 37 field-goal attempts for a 94.6 field-goal percentage while going a perfect 32-for-32 on extra-point attempts, racking 137 total points. 

Over his career Tucker has been the definition of accurate, making 326 out of 358 field-goal attempts for a career field-goal percentage of 91.1%. He has been even more accurate on extra-point attempts, nailing 382 out of 386 attempts for an astounding 99% on extra-point attempts. 

As Longhorns fans remember Tucker fondly for his game-winning kick to end the rivalry with Texas A&M in 2011, he has gone on to become the best kicker the sport.
