    Yeah, good for him. Averages to about 4.5M a year...he was scheduled to make about 900k this season. It doesn't say how the contract breaks down per year but that's definitely a nice boost in income for the most reliable kicker in the league.

    How does that compare to other top kickers in the league?

    How great is this?!?!?

    I am happy for Jason and the Phins! Nice job locking him in down through 2026!

    Honestly, this will probably be one of the most underrated signings of the offseason.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Miami is signing Sanders to a five-year, $22 million contract extension to tie him to the club through 2026. The deal reportedly includes $10 million in guarantees.

    Sanders just completed his third season out of New Mexico, making him one of the first members of the 2018 draft class to receive an extension. Miami selected him with the 229th overall pick in the seventh round.

    Sanders was one of the most accurate kickers in 2020, missing only three of his 39 attempts. He hit 12-of-14 attempts from 40-49 yards and 8-of-9 kicks from at least 50 yards. He nailed all 36 of his extra points and sent 70.3 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks.

    Overall, he’s sent 86.5 percent of his field goals and 98 percent of his era points through the uprights.

    The total value of 22m is tops in the league. Per-year average is 4th. Guaranteed money is 3rd behind Justin Tucker and Jake Elliott.

    Hes earned it. We rarely worry about extra points or even 50 yard field goal tries.. not many teams can say that.. lots of teams around the league have major kicking issues

    That feels like an eternity for a kicker contract, but the money isn't really an issue -not like paying a QB big money and then having to get rid of them (I'm looking at YOU, Rams and Eagles).

    Well he was a 1st team all pro and got paid without setting a new kicker market and hurting us. Hes paid very well, but he's earned it. Good for him.

    Thanks!
