Former Texas kicker Justin Tucker is using his time this NFL offseason to give back to those in and around the Maryland community. The Ravens clutch kicker joined the Maryland Food Bank to help pack food into boxes for those who need it most, as seen in the above video.
Tucker has become one of the household names in the NFL kicking community throughout his career with the Baltimore Ravens. Tucker is coming off of his seventh season in the NFL, all of which has been spent with the Ravens. During that time, Tucker has posted an impressive field goal percentage, currently hitting 89.7 percent of his career field goal attempts.
In addition to being clutch from field goal range, Tucker has only missed on point after touchdown, which happened during the 2018 NFL season. And in his seven NFL seasons, Tucker has only had five field goal attempts blocked in his NFL playing career.
One of the most memorable plays Tucker made at the University of Texas came in the final game of the Lonestar Showdown between the Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies during the 2011 college football season. Tucker hit a 40-yard field goal to give the Longhorns' their final win over their rival Aggies.
Watch the above video to see Tucker put his efforts to help those in need with the Maryland Food Bank.
