Hopefully, Tucker worked a clause into his contract that calls for a giant bonus every time he hits a kick that long.
Tucker is one of only 13 kickers in NFL history who's actually hit a field of over 60 yards in a game. The Ravens kicker nailed a 61-yarder against Detroit in December 2013.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh knows his kicker has a strong leg, which is why he let Tucker attempt the 69-yarder during Sunday's practice.
"[Harbaugh] asked, 'Are we kicking this?' And I ran out there and I said, 'Hell yeah, we're kicking it!' Kind of didn't really give anybody a choice," Tucker told the Baltimore Sun. "When you do that, you kind of have to make it."
Although Tucker would love to attempt a 69-yard field goal every time he plays, he does realize that's probably not going to happen.
"We're not just gonna be out there hitting 69-yarders in the first quarter unless we've got a 30 mile-an-hour tailwind, and our defense is just ballin', and we have just the most amazing defense versus offense matchup," Tucker said. "But when they call upon me, I gotta be ready."
Harbaugh was so excited after Tucker's kick that he actually chest bumped his kicker.
"That was a first," Tucker said of the chest bump. "I always get nervous when I see the high school and college players doing the jump, side-bump. My whole thing is, if you're gonna celebrate, stay on the ground, but if it's with the head ball coach, then you do it."
Tucker's not lame, there's a reason kickers have a "stay on the ground" rule with celebrations. Just ask Bill Gramatica about that.
