Justin Tucker is the most accurate kicker in NFL history, so it only makes sense that he’d be the highest-paid kicker in NFL history.
On Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens announced that they’d agreed to a four-year extension with Tucker that will keep him with the team through 2023.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that Tucker’s contract is for $23.05 million and includes $12.5 million fully guaranteed in the first two years and an $8 million signing bonus.
Those figures are all records for a player at the position.
Stephen Gostkowski of the New England Patriots held the previous record; in 2015, Gostkowski agreed to a four-year, $17.2 million contract with $10.1 million in guarantees.
Gostkowski played out that deal, and after a few weeks as a free agent, agreed to a two-year, $8.5 million contract with New England earlier this month.
Undrafted out of Texas in 2012, Tucker is the most accurate kicker in league history, and by a comfortable margin: he’s made 90.114 percent of his 263 career field-goal tries; Robbie Gould and Gostkowski are second and third but separated by a hair, at 87.745 and 87.381 percent respectively.
Last year Tucker was 35-of-39 on field goal attempts and missed the first extra point of his career, making 36-of-37.
