BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. It’s not that shocking to see the kicker receive that title.
Tucker is the only NFL kicker who’s perfect this season. He’s 27 for 27 on field goal tries — including seven from 50 yards or longer — and has nailed every one of his 15 conversions.
Tucker is what the Ravens Flock calls “clutch,” always coming in to save the offense. He’s scored 96 points, a whopping 44 percent of Baltimore’s season total of 218.
Tucker is surely worth the $16.8 million contract he signed in July. The deal included an NFL-record for the position $10.8 million in guaranteed money.
