New Orleans Saints kicker Will Lutz signed a five-year contract on Wednesday. Lutz's agent posted a picture of Lutz signing a contract at the Saints' facility in Metairie, La., and said the deal sets a new record for placekicker contracts.
The team confirmed the move, which replaces the one-year restricted free agent tender for Lutz. "This is the team that took a shot in the dark on me from the start," Lutz said on a media conference call Wednesday.
Lutz, 24, made 28 of 30 field goal attempts (93.3 percent) and 52 of 53 extra point attempts for 136 total points in 2018. --Field Level Media
