Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has allegedly elected not to re-sign with the Ravens after the 2016 season if both sides do not agree to a long-term deal.
Ravens' K Justin Tucker is so frustrated with negotiations he's vowing not to re-sign with BALT after season if no long-term deal by Friday.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 14, 2016
Tucker is in the last year of his contract with the Ravens and he is due to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2016 season which means he can sign with any team he wants. Tucker has been a big part of the Ravens franchise over the last five seasons including his rookie year in 2012 when he signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent. Tucker's leg during the 2012 season helped guide the Ravens to its second Super Bowl title in franchise history.
The Ravens hope to have his services in the future. It is important to note that despite the cap issues the Ravens have had over the last several seasons, in 2018 as it currently stands, the Ravens could have over 38 million dollars in cap space according to Spotrac.com below.
This is just a projection. This doesn't account for Ravens inside linebacker C.J. Mosely and defensive lineman Brandon Williams. A lot needs to be done before 2018, but it gives a little bit of an idea of how flexible the Ravens could be going forward.
