From Adam Schefter early this morning:
K Mason Crosby has agreed to terms with the Packers on a 5-year deal.
Tom Silverstien has the contract numbers:
According to a source familiar with the negotiations, the deal is worth $14.75 million and includes $3 million of guaranteed money.
With the new kickoff rules, Crosby could become a legitimate weapon for the defense. Mike McCarthy:
I expect a lot of series starting from the 20. I think it’s going to be great for Mason. He'll be able to show off that powerful leg. When you kick from the 30, sometimes it's hard at Lambeau to just kick it out. You'll see a lot more touchbacks. It’s hard to kick in that place. But he’s thrilled. He's back with the Super Bowl champs.
With kickoffs being moved up to the 35, you can expect to see the opposing team taking a knee quite a bit more - provided of course Shaun Slocumn allows Crosby to swing away.
