Report: Justin Tucker signs RFA tender
One of the NFL’s top kickers has signed his restricted free agent tender.
Baltimore’s Justin Tucker has inked his one-year, $2.356 million contract offer, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported.
Tucker, 25, connected on 29-of-34 field goals in 2014 (.853), forcing touchbacks on 60-of-88 kickoffs. All five misses were from 50 yards or more. Overall, he has hit 97-of-108 field goals in three NFL seasons (.898), including 59-of-60 from inside of 40 yards.
Given his age, accuracy and leg strength, Tucker figures to be paid at or near the top of the market when it comes time to sign a new deal in 2016, assuming he remains in good form.
