  • Ravens strike last-minute deal with K Tucker
    Ravens signed K Justin Tucker to a four-year, $16.8 million contract.

    Advice: The deal includes $10.8 million guaranteed with a $6 million signing bonus. 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.

  • Justin Tucker's agent confirms 2017 threat
    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.

    Advice: 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.

  • Report: K Tucker threatening 2017 departure
    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.

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:10 pm
