MILWAUKEE (AP) The Green Bay Packers have officially announced the re-signing of reliable kicker and franchise career scoring leader Mason Crosby.
General manager Ted Thompson announced the deal on Wednesday that keeps the nine-year veteran off the free agent market.
A person familiar with the four-year contract told The Associated Press that the deal was worth $16.1 million, with a $5 million signing bonus. The person requested anonymity because the Packers do not release financial terms of contracts.
Crosby has been a special teams mainstay in Green Bay since being selected in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft out of Colorado.
He ranks first in franchise history with 1,145 points and 236 field goals. His 20 straight postseason field goals dating back to 2010 are an NFL playoff record.
