Justin Tucker is statistically the most accurate kicker in NFL history. Now, he's officially the highest-paid one as well.

The Baltimore Ravens signed Tucker to a four-year, $23 million extension this morning, including more than $12 million guaranteed in the first two seasons of the deal. He is now locked in with Baltimore through 2023.

The Ravens confirmed the extension with a picture of Tucker signing his contract.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the deal also includes an $8 million signing bonus. All of these figures are all-time highs for a kicker.

An undrafted free agent out of Texas in 2012, Tucker has been a mainstay in Baltimore. He's connected on 90.1 percent of his field goals in his career, which is nearly three percentage points higher than the second-most accurate kicker, Robbie Gould.

In his first seven seasons, Tucker has hit 237-of-263 field goal attempts and has missed only one extra point in 242 tries.

He's been a three-time All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowl selection.
