Ravens kicker Justin Tucker mocks Russell Wilson on Baltimore’s team plane

Oct 28, 2022, 8:38 AM

Broncos QB Russell Wilson is the talk of the NFL.

And not in a good way.

After the Internet relentlessly made fun of Wilson for admitting he did “high-knees” in the airplane aisles on the team’s flight to London, players have now joined in. On an Instagram live after the Ravens took down the Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, Wilson caught a stray from Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker.

The quote in the tweet says it all, as does Tucker’s face in the video. He knows he just roasted Wilson, and looks away from the camera as if he had a “mic drop” moment. Tucker, widely regarded as one of the nicest guys in the league, then catches himself a bit.

“But we’ve got to play him and we respect him. And we like him. Alright,” Tucker says.

One of the greatest kickers in NFL history, Tucker is right about one part. The two teams will meet in Week 13 at Baltimore. Still, Wilson is now getting made fun of by a kicker?! A very good one, but the man is a kicker.

This has to add fuel to Wilson’s fire and the only way to cure this behavior from around the NFL is to win. And win a lot. Wilson may have been “corny” in Seattle, but he was wildly successful, so other players didn’t take shots. But now, at just 2-5 with Denver, every move is scrutinized and seemingly everything he says and does is fair game.

It’d be nice if for just one week the Broncos weren’t the talk of the football world. Just one is all I’m asking. A win on Sunday over Jacksonville would go a long way toward helping that cause.
