The Seahawks have reached agreement on a new contract with kicker Jason Myers, the team announced Wednesday.

According to multiple reports, Myers will sign a four-year, $21.1 million deal. That makes him second in the NFL at his position in annual average behind Ravens kicker Justin Tucker‘s $6 million a year average.

Myers was scheduled to become a free agent this spring.

Myers earned Pro Bowl honors this season for the second time in his career, making 34 of 37 field goals and 41 of 42 extra points. His 143 points led the league.

He has spent four seasons in Seattle after three in Jacksonville and 2018 with the Jets.

  1. For some strange reason, whenever I see this guy’s name, I always think of Jason Voorhees and Michael Meyers (not the actor).

  2. Funny how he had a pro bowl season just as his contract was about to expire. He’s good ,but over 5 million a year?

  3. Worth it. Dude has been a stud for the past four years. We struggled with consistency before him, and it’s nice to not have to worry about the kicking game anymore.

  4. Did well to lock him down before Todd Bowles made a move and got the final piece to his Superbowl team! 🙂

  5. I still think kickers are underrated in the sense that if you get a good one, teams should hold on to him like grim death…until his Maher Moment inevitably ruins him. The best teams seem to not shuffle through kickers. Like, the cowboys are at a serious disadvantage having no faith in the kicker and that shouldn’t be the case for teams still playing
