The Pittsburgh Steelers are rewarding veteran kicker Chris Boswell like few kickers ever get rewarded.
Boswell and the AFC North franchise have agreed on a massive new contract extension.
The deal is worth four years and $20 million. $12.5 million of that deal is guaranteed. The Steelers have their veteran kicker for the next five seasons.
"Steelers are giving kicker Chris Boswell a new four-year, $20 million extension that includes $12.5 million guaranteed, his agent Jeff Nalley confirmed Monday. The four-year extension ties Boswell with Justin Tucker as the highest-paid kickers in NFL history," said ESPN's Adam Schefter.
That's quite the commitment from the Steelers for a 31-year-old kicker. But when someone like Justin Tucker is in your division, you're going to have to pay big money for a top kicker like Chris Boswell.
Boswell has spent his entire NFL career with the Steelers. Last season, he converted 36 of his 40 field-goal tries, an impressive 90-percent mark.
Boswell will be kicking for the Steelers through the 2026 season.
