Without actually being compared to the best salaries in the NFL (such as the $50.2 million received by quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers), items such as Justin Trucker ($6 million a year with Baltimore Ravens), Jason Myers (5 con Seattle Seahawks) y Chris Boswell (5.2 with the Pittsburgh Steelers) manage to stand out in a very competitive universe of players, which shows their relevance.
And why does Tucker stand out? The 33-year-old player has records that lead to understanding, since his hit rate is around 91 percentin addition to boasting the best field record in history with a 66-yard field goal vs Detroit.
