That's the most guaranteed money ever given to a kicker, topping the $10.1 million Stephen Gostkowski earned on his last contract. Tucker missed a career-high seven field goals last year but also led the league in attempts. Five franchise players remain unsigned including Kirk Cousins, Eric Berry and Alshon Jeffery.

Ravens franchise player Justin Tucker's agent confirms he won't re-sign in 2017 if the sides can't reach a long-term deal by Friday's deadline.

Kickers shall inherit the earth in the dead news period. "Justin's disillusioned with the process right now and the Ravens' position with him on his contract," his agent said. "If we don't get a long-term deal done by Friday, Justin will not entertain offers from Ravens after the season." Per Tucker's agent, the Ravens are offering less than what Mason Crosby got in March (four years and $16.1 million), and have actually lowered their best offer. That's understandably unacceptable to Tucker, who is currently the league's second-most accurate kicker of all time. The sides have less than 22 hours to come to an agreement.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ravens franchise player Justin Tucker has grown "so frustrated" in talks that he's "vowing" not to re-sign in 2017 if a deal isn't reached by Friday's deadline.

Tucker is due a princely — for a kicker — $4.572 million under his tender, but understandably wants to get locked up long term. He's reportedly angling for something similar to the four-year, $17.2 million pact Stephen Gostkowski got last summer. Tucker certainly deserves it as one of the league's truly elite kickers. Our guess is something gets done.
Jul 14 - 6:10 PM

The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens are optimistic they will reach a long-term deal with K Justin Tucker before the July 15 deadline.

Zrebiec cautions, "There’s no indication that a deal is imminent," but talks should pick up as the deadline draws near. Set to make $4.572 million under the terms of the franchise tag, Tucker is likely looking for a deal similar to the four-year, $17.2 million contract Stephen Gostkowski landed at the deadline last summer. Tucker has connected on 87.8 percent of his attempts during his four-year career.
Jul 11 - 10:37 AM

Ravens franchise-tagged K Justin Tucker said signing a contract extension is "a matter of when, not if."

Tucker admitted the sides haven't been in contract talks since the beginning of OTAs but he remains confident a deal will be worked out before the July 15 deadline. "There’s still time," said Tucker. "I’m optimistic that something will get done." Tucker missed a career-high seven field goals last season but also led the league in attempts with 40.
Jun 13 - 9:39 AM

Ravens signed franchise player K Justin Tucker to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.

Tucker will likely play out 2016 on the tag before heading to free agency next spring. He made 33-of-40 (82.5 percent) field goals last season and has an 87.8 percent career success rate. Tucker also didn't miss an extra point in 2015.
Mar 4 - 11:12 AM

Ravens assigned the franchise tag to K Justin Tucker.

The two sides were unable to come to an agreement on a long-term deal this week, so GM Ozzie Newsome is getting it out of the way ahead of Tuesday's deadline. If they can't reach a deal by July 15, Tucker will earn $4.5 million under the tag and be in line to test the market in 2017. He's 26.
Feb 26 - 9:30 AM

Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said he plans to franchise tag Justin Tucker if a deal isn't reached before the March 1 deadline.

It confirms earlier reports. Franchising Tucker would give the Ravens more time to work out an extension. Tucker would make $4.5 million if he plays under the tag.

The Ravens are expected to use the franchise tag on K Justin Tucker if a long-term agreement cannot be reached before March 1.

The franchise tag for kickers is expected to cost $4.5 million. Because the price is relatively low as compared to other positions, teams have regularly used the tag to retain top kickers and punters. One of the best kickers in the game, the Ravens will attempt to lock up Tucker with a long-term deal before training camp.

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.
