Justin Tucker signed a four-year extension with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Monday, with a source saying it’s worth $24 million and continues to make Tucker the NFL’s highest-paid kicker.
Tucker, the most accurate kicker in NFL history, will earn an average of $6 million per season, the source said, which is $1 million more per season than any other kicker. Tucker’s new deal comes a week after Chris Boswell signed an extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers that had matched Tucker for being the league’s highest-paid kicker at $5 million per season.
Fans had some reactions to Tucker becoming the best-paid kicker in league history.

He owns the longest FG ever at 66 yards (to win a game as time expired).
He's made 57 straight FGs in the fourth quarter/overtime.
He's *never* missed a kick in the final minute of regulation.
