Mason Crosby Signs Three Year Deal With Packers
The Green Bay Packers rewarded their kicker of 13 seasons with a big contract to keep him at Lambeau for a while.
NFL.com's Tom Pelissero is reporting that the Packers and Crosby reached an agreement with a 3 year contract worth $12.9 million. The contract is structured to be back heavy. He will get $6 million in the first year, then $9.5 million for the next two years after that.
Mike McCartney made the announcement via Twitter.
Coming off a solid season as the Packers won the NFC North and ascended to the NFC Championship Game, Crosby converted 22 of 24 field goal tries (91.7 percent) and missed just one point-after attempt in 41 tries. The other thing is he has kept himself healthy too, not missing a game since they drafted him in 2007.
Crosby is considered old for an NFL veteran and really old as a kicker at age 35. That hasn't shown in his health or kicking ability. Mason Crosby has been money when they have counted on him.
