Speaking Thursday, GM Ozzie Newsome hinted the Ravens might use the franchise tag on impending free agent K Justin Tucker.
One of the league's three best kickers, Tucker is due a raise on last year's $2.36 million. Rather ridiculously, the franchise tag has become common for kickers. Whether it's via the tag or a new deal, Tucker will remain in Baltimore for 2016. Jan 7 - 2:51 PM

Impending free agent K Justin Tucker said the Ravens and his agent have been in negotiations for "the better part of a year."

Tucker made $2.36 million playing under an RFA tender this season. He should be in line for a raise. Tucker made "just" 82.5 percent of his field goal attempts this season, but all but one of his misses was from 50-plus. He was also perfect from the new extra point distance, which is a feat only five kickers managed this year. Tucker is one of the best kickers in the game, and he should push $10 million guaranteed on his next deal.
Jan 5 - 8:54 AM

Ravens contract-year K Justin Tucker is expected to command at least $9 million guaranteed on his next contract.

Tucker is looking to become the highest-paid kicker in the NFL. The Ravens have several contract situations they need to attend to (e.g. Kelechi Osemele and Marshal Yanda) but Tucker remains a top priority. At very least, he'll be given the franchise tag in 2016. As a point of reference, Stephen Gostkowski will earn $4.59 million playing under the franchise tag this season.

ESPN’s Jamison Hensley expects contract-year K Justin Tucker to command in excess of $3 million annually.

Tucker is currently playing under his $2.36 million RFA tender. One of the best kickers in the league, Tucker should top Sebastian Janikowski and Robbie Gould’s $8M guaranteed. Tucker will be a candidate for the 2016 franchise tag if the Ravens don’t extend him.

Ravens signed K Justin Tucker to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

It's a procedural move after the Ravens placed a second-round tender on Tucker as a restricted free agent. The sides will keep working on an extension, but in the meantime Tucker will be locked in as an elite fantasy option. Tucker has averaged 32.3 made field goals over the last three seasons while hitting 89.8 percent of his attempts.

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said restricted free agent K Justin Tucker remains a candidate for an extension.

Tucker is owed $2.356 million on his second-round tender. The Ravens want to extend Tucker over paying him a high base salary on a one-year deal. Tucker has been one of the best kickers in the league over the past three seasons, converting 89.8 percent on field goals. He finished behind only Stephen Gostkowski, Adam Vinatieri and Mason Crosby in fantasy points last year.

Ravens extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent K Justin Tucker.

Kickers don't often get high-level tenders, but Tucker is one of the best in the league and only 25 years old. This tender is worth over $2 million.

The Baltimore Sun suggests the Ravens could tender restricted free agent K Justin Tucker at a first- or second-round level.

This would ensure that Tucker would not get any offer sheets because no team is dumb enough to give up a top-64 pick for a kicker. It also would give Tucker a sizable raise he deserves after going 97-of-108 (89.8 percent) on field goals over the last three seasons. A first-round tender would cost $3.113M and a second-rounder is $2.187M.

The Ravens are interested in signing contract-year PK Justin Tucker to a long-term extension.

Tucker, 24, will be a restricted free agent in 2015. He's only owed $570,000 this season, so Baltimore would be savvy to let him turn in another year before handing him top-flight kicker money. Tucker holds Ravens franchise records in both single-season field goal conversions (38) and points scored (140).

Justin Tucker now holds the Ravens' franchise records for both field goals made in a season (38) and points scored (140).

Matt Stover previously held the records. Despite a Week 16 dud that buried fantasy owners in Super Bowls, Tucker emerged as a weekly top-five kicking option thanks to his impressive leg and the Ravens' red-zone woes. Only Stephen Gostkowski and Matt Prater scored more fantasy points than Tucker, who is now 68-of-74 (91.9 percent) on field goals in his career.

Justin Tucker's streak of 33 straight field goal makes was snapped in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Patriots.

Tucker buried owners in fantasy's Super Bowl week by shanking a 37-yarder and finishing with one point. "Just to put it simply, I missed the ball," he said. This comes on the heels of a Week 15 performance that saw Tucker go 6-of-6, including makes from 49, 53 and 61 yards out. Kicking remains the most unpredictable and random position in fantasy football.

Justin Tucker's 61-yard field goal on Monday night was the third-longest go-ahead field goal in the final minute of the fourth quarter in NFL history.

Tucker's remarkable six field goals (including two from 50+) still has the NFL and fantasy world buzzing. Even Tucker himself is aware of the impact he had on millions of owners. "I'm glad I could come through, of course, for my reality team as well as for my fantasy owners," he said afterward. "Thank you for picking me up, it means a lot to me. And hopefully I can continue to contribute to the successes of your respective teams." Now riding 33 straight makes, Tucker will be a major factor in the fantasy finals as well.

Justin Tucker converted all six of his field goals in Baltimore's Week 15, 18-16 win over the Lions on Monday night.

Tucker was the biggest weapon in this one. He was good from 29, 24, 32, 49, 53, and 61 yards -- the 61-yard boot came with 43 seconds left in the fourth quarter and the Ravens trailing 16-15 on the scoreboard. It was truly one of the most clutch kicks in NFL history considering the circumstances. The Ravens are now 8-6, one game behind the 9-5 Bengals in the AFC North. Baltimore now controls its own destiny. The Bengals and Ravens will meet in Week 17. Back to Tucker. He's now made 33 straight field goals and undoubtedly was a major factor and decided plenty of fantasy football semifinals matchups.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 11:41:00 PM

Justin Tucker has now made 22 consecutive field goals, tying Matt Stover for the second-longest streak in Ravens history.

Tucker went 4-of-4 despite windy conditions against the Jets Sunday, including one make from 53 yards out. During his two-year career, he's a sparkling 54-of-59 (91.5 percent) and has made nine field goals from 50-plus. Tucker will be a top-10 fantasy option once again as the Ravens host the Steelers on Thanksgiving.
Mon, Nov 25, 2013 09:32:00 AM

Justin Tucker has converted 16 consecutive field goals.

Tucker, who hit a 46-yard game-winner to beat the Bengals in overtime Sunday, hasn't missed since Week 2. This comes on the heels of a sparkling rookie campaign that saw him go 30-of-33 on field goals. Tucker makes for a fine fantasy kicking option at Chicago in Week 11.
