The AFC North rivalry between the Ravens and Steelers is alive and well, as evidenced by Baltimore’s reaction to Pittsburgh making Chris Boswell one of the highest-paid kickers in the NFL.

5:30 p.m. ET, ESPN Adam Schefter reported that the Steelers were giving Boswell a four-year, $20 million extension with $12.5 million guaranteed. The deal will tie him with 31-year-old Ravens kicker Justin Tucker as the two highest-paid players in the position.

However, Baltimore wanted to clarify that he thinks Tucker is still in a league of his own. Exactly five minutes after the Boswell report was released, the Ravens tweeted a photodragging the Steelers by honoring their own kicker.

The Ravens certainly don’t need to discuss Tucker’s greatness, because his resume speaks for itself. The 32-year-old has made five first-team All-Pro appearances and holds the NFL records for career field goal percentage (91.1%) and longest field goal made (66 yards).

Boswell may not be on the same level as Tucker, but his performance over his last three seasons with the Steelers is nothing short of exceptional. After making his first and only Pro Bowl in 2017, he made 93.5% of his field goal attempts in 2019 and a career-high 95% of his field goals in 20, before connecting on 90% of his attempts last season.

Still, as long as Boswell stays in a Steelers jersey, the Ravens are sure to remind him and Pittsburgh fans that one of the greatest kickers in NFL history plays in Baltimore.
