VIDEO: Justin Tucker impresses with ‘Tiger King’ song cover
It seems that Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker has gotten into the “Tiger King” craze during the quarantine period.
While the All-Pro Ravens kicker is a great performer on the football field, Tucker is more than capable of stepping up on a different art. He showed that he has some musical chops by masterfully covering the “I Saw a Tiger ” song that was made famous by the hit Netflix series.

The “Tiger King” has been watched by 34.3 million people during the first 10 days of its release, and evidently, Justin Tucker is one of the millions of people who got hooked into the true-crime documentary.
Tucker signed as an undrafted free agent with the Ravens in 2012. In his eight-year tenure with the team, he has been named to four All-Pro first teams, one All-Pro second team, and three Pro-Bowls. Tucker was also voted as part of the NFL’s 2010s All-Decade Team.
The 30-year-old was also a key player in the Super Bowl-winning Ravens team in 2012, with his two field-goal conversions in the fourth quarter helping Baltimore seal the deal against the San Francisco 49ers. To this day, Tucker holds the best NFL Field Goal percentage, making him the most accurate field goal kicker in the league’s history.
With that said, maybe a Grammy or a Country Music Award for Best New Artist is on the horizon for him?
While the song sounded flawless, Tucker did admit it took some practice for it to get it done: “I’ve been working on that all day. Hopefully it wasn’t too bad,” said Tucker.
