by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/15/2016) Tucker and the Ravens have agreed to a four-year, $16.8 million contract extension that includes $10.8 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Tucker took a hard stance by saying he wouldn't re-sign with Baltimore if no long-term deal was reached by Friday's deadline, and the Ravens responded by giving him the most money guaranteed to a kicker in NFL history. At 26 years old, Tucker has converted nearly 88 percent of his field goal attempts across four seasons and has never missed an extra point, emerging as one of the league's best kickers along the way.


Steelers' Chris Boswell: Will assume kicker duties in the Steel City
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/3/2016) Boswell will keep the Steelers' full-time job at kicker during 2016, NFL.com reports.

In the wake of Shaun Suisham's knee injury and subsequent release from the team in June, Boswell should have the kicking job in Pittsburgh all to himself during 2016. As a rookie (in 2015), Boswell converted 29 of 32 field goals, with his longest coming from 51 yards, to go along with 26 of 27 extra points. Despite, QB Ben Roethlisberger's desire to go for two points after every touchdown, Boswell should retain fantasy relevance as the leg for the Steelers' high-octane offense.


Shaun Suisham: Released by Steelers

(6/24/2016) Suisham was released by the Steelers on Friday.

The Steelers revealed that Suisham suffered a setback in his recovery from knee surgery and will be sidelined a while longer, which prompted them to give him his release and free up a roster spot. With Suisham no longer on the roster, Chris Boswell is the clear favorite to open the season as the Steelers' kicker.


Steelers' Shaun Suisham: Still recovering from torn ACL

(6/8/2016) Suisham is still recovering from a torn ACL on his non-kicking leg, which ended his 2015-16 season, Mark Kaboly of TribLive.com reports.

Suisham has yet to attempt a kick due to the injury he suffered over 10 months ago and is unsure if he'll be ready by the end of July for training camp. Chris Boswell, who is heading into his second season, filled in for Suisham last season, converting 36 of 39 field-goal attempts and 27 of 28 extra-point attempts. The two are expected to compete for the stating job, but even if Suisham isn't able to win back the gig he's held for three seasons, he could find his way onto another team's roster given his impressive track record.


Buccaneers' Roberto Aguayo: Inks four-year deal with Buccaneers

(6/7/2016) Aguayo signed a four-year contract with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Aguayo, the most accurate kicker in NCAA history, inked his rookie deal on Tuesday as he enters the 2016 season atop kicking depth chart in Tampa Bay. The team had enough faith in his ability to spend a second-round pick on the former Florida State standout, so he should make an immediate impact on the Bucs' special teams unit.


Saints' Connor Barth: Signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/20/2016) The Saints will sign Barth, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After cutting Josh Scobee loose earlier this week, the Saints were seemingly in the market for a kicker with just Kai Forbath on the roster. An invitee at rookie minicamp last week, Barth will be tabbed to challenge Forbath, and the former's success rate in the Superdome (8-for-8 in his career) could very well aid in the competition.


Patrick Murray: Waived by Bucs on Thursday

(5/19/2016) Murray was waived by the Bucs on Thursday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old last kicked for the Bucs in his rookie year of 2014, hitting 20 of 24 field goals, including 5 of 6 from 50 yards or more. Murray was also perfect that season on 31 extra points at the previous distance, but suffered a knee injury last summer and was in the midst of recovering from spring knee surgery. The timing of the move figures to provide the Fordham product with plenty of time to find a training camp opportunity for 2016, and also leaves the Bucs with an opening on their 90-man roster.

Josh Scobee: Released by Saints

(5/17/2016) Scobee was released by the Saints on Tuesday, Katherine Terrell reports.

Scobee signed on with the Saints back in March but will once again be a free agent as it appears the team is confident heading forward with Kai Forbath as the lone kicker on the roster. The veteran Scobee will hope to find his way onto another team in search of some competition at kicker as training camps near.


Jets' Nick Folk: Resumes kicking
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(5/10/2016) Folk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.
