The Seattle Seahawks have extended kicker Jason Myers for four more years. The deal is reportedly worth up to $22.6 million, according to Adam Schefter. Myers, 31, is getting a contract that makes him the second-highest-paid kicker in the NFL, behind Justin Tucker of the Ravens. In his third season with the Seahawks, Myers was very accurate, with his kicks being good 91.4% of the time. He was also 6-6 in attempts beyond 50 yards, which was the best in the league. 

With this extension, Jason Myers will be Seattle’s kicker until at least 2026. He provides stability at the position, one that the Seahawks have had trouble finding in the past ever since Stephen Hauschka left. Myers was with the Jets before being in Seattle, where he was also a Pro Bowler. Ever since Myers has come to Seattle, he has been everything as advertised. With now his second Pro Bowl season under his belt, Myers will look to continue his excellent kicking for another four years.
