Tucker agreed Wednesday with the Ravens on a four-year contract extension, Clifton Brown of the team's official website reports. Tucker leads the NFL in career field-goal percentage (90.1%) and has consistently turned in useful fantasy seasons despite being attached to mediocre or subpar offenses. His phenomenal track record includes at least four field goals of 50 or more yards in each of his seven NFL seasons, with a career conversion rate of 70.4 percent (38 of 54) from long range. The 29-year-old kicker showed no sign of decline in 2018, though he did miss a game-tying extra point Week 7 to snap his streak of 222 consecutive PATs. Adam Schefter of ESPN relays that the four-year extension is worth $23.05 million, including an $8 million signing bonus and $12.5 million guaranteed. All of those figures are NFL records for a kicker.
Tucker converted on 35 of 39 field-goal attempts and added 36 extra points on 37 attempts in 2018. Another strong season netted Tucker a first-team All-Pro nod and kept him cemented as one of the elite kickers in the NFL. He connected on five kicks of 50-plus yards and has now made at least 30 field goals in four straight seasons and six of his seven seasons overall. Tucker will enter the final season of his four-year, $16.8 million deal with the Ravens in 2019.
Tucker made three of his five field-goal attempts and an extra point in Saturday's win over the Chargers. Tucker's line was deflated by a series of long kicks against Los Angeles. He missed a makable 53-yard attempt and a 65-yard prayer as time expired in the first half. He did manage to connect from 56 yards and on his shorter attempts. He's hitting on 89 percent of his field goals this season (31-for-35) and continues to be one of the best fantasy options in the league at his position.
Tucker connected on both field-goal attempts and both extra-point attempts in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. Tucker converted field-goal attempts from 24-yards and 35-yards out. He improves to 28-for-30 on field-goal attempts this season -- fifth best percentage in the league of those over at least 20 attempts.
Tucker knocked through his only field goal attempt from 28 yards and converted each of his three extra point attempts during Sunday's 27-24 loss to Kansas City. It was a typical day at the office for Tucker, who is now 26-for-28 on the season. Tucker's six points ended his streak of four consecutive games with at least 10 points, but that is more of a product of opportunity than anything else. The 29-year-old has used this season as a platform to unequivocally prove he still has plenty left in the tank.
