The Baltimore Ravens signed kicker Justin Tucker to a four-year extension through the 2027 season on Monday.

The total value of the deal is $24 million, including an $11.5 million signing bonus and $17.5 million guaranteed, multiple outlets reported.

The Ravens also activated running back JK Dobbins from the physically unable to perform list on Monday.

Dobbins, 23, missed all of last season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during the preseason. A second-round draft pick, Dobbins rushed for 805 yards and nine touchdowns and added 18 catches for 120 yards in 15 games (one start) as a rookie in 2020.

Tucker, 32, once again becomes the NFL's highest-paid kicker at $6 million per season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers re-signed Chris Boswell for $5 million per season last week, briefly tying Tucker for that honor.

Heading into his 11th season with the Ravens in 2022, Tucker is the most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history with a career conversion rate of 91.1 percent.

Last season, he broke the NFL record with a 66-yard field goal as time expired to beat the Detroit Lions 19-17 in Week 3.

Tucker has converted 326 of 358 FG attempts and 382 of 386 extra-point tries (99.0 percent) in 161 games since making his debut in 2012. He is a five-time All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowl selection.

Dobbins said last month he is targeting a return to the field for the regular-season opener Sept. 11 against the Jets.
