Packers Extend Tim Masthay
It’s probably not the contract extension you were expecting the Green Bay Packers to be focusing on (cough, * Greg Jennings * cough, cough), but the team signed punter Tim Masthay to a four-year extension Friday.
Masthay received $5.465 million in the contract, which runs through 2016. That includes a $1.2 million signing bonus, according to Ian Rapoport.
Not bad for a guy for a guy who strolled in off the street with no NFL experience and won a training camp punting battle in 2010.
Masthay has averaged 44.6 yards per punt and 38 yards gross in his two-year career. Last season, he averaged 45.6 yards per punt and 38.6 gross.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
