In case you forgot, Justin Tucker is really good at kicking field goals.

In his six-year NFL career he's twice been named a first-team All-Pro. In 2013, he helped the Ravens win Super Bowl XLVII. At Texas, he was one of the best kickers in school history.

On Tuesday, the former Longhorn and current Baltimore Raven decided to remind everyone why he might someday make the NFL Hall-of-Fame.

Here's the monster boot he posted to his Twitter account.

Last season, Eagles' kicker Jake Elliott hit the longest field goal of the 2017 NFL season (61 yards). The record for the longest field goal in the history of the league is owned by Matt Prater. The former Broncos' kicker nailed one from 64 yards at Sports Authority Field at Mile High back in 2013.

In 2013, Tucker blasted his longest career field goal (61 yards). That distance is tied for third in NFL history.

Legendary Texas Longhorns running back Ricky Williams talks about being inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame.
