The Houston Texans have signed punter Shane Lechler to a contract extension.

An 18-year veteran Authentic Dallas Goedert Jersey , Lechler comes off one of his finest seasons. He led the NFL in punting yards (4,507), finished second in both net punting yards (3,799) and punting average (49.0), and tied for third in total punts (92). He put 32 punts inside the 20-yard line.

Displaying his still-powerful leg, Lechler tied for second in the NFL with six games with a punting average of 50 or more yards.

Lechler, who will be 42 in August, spent the first 13 years of his career with the Oakland Raiders. He is a six-time All-Pro selection (2000, 2003 John Kelly Color Rush Jersey , 2004, 2008-2010), and seven-time Pro Bowl selection (2001, 2004, 2007-2011). In 286 career games, Lechler ranks first in NFL in punting average (47.6), second in punting yards (68,678), second in punts inside the 20 (469) Patrick Corbin Jersey , second in net punting yards (56,685), and second in punts (1,444).

The Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers don't appear to be anywhere close on a contract extension, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.Citing a league source, Florio reported that the two sides haven't made any "meaningful progress," in contract talks. As Florio noted, it doesn't mean that they won't reach an extension, but it's unlikely one will be finalized in the nearby future.Rodgers signed a five-year Kerry Wood Jersey , $110 million contract during the 2013 season. His base salary for 2018 is $19.8 million and will increase up to $20 million for 2019, according to's certainly in line for a big raise if this level of play continues. But Rodgers will be 35 in December, so the Packers may be hesitant to commit such a mammoth long-term deal to Rodgers, who missed half of 2017 with a broken collarbone.In an interview with Peter King of NBC Sports earlier this week, Rodgers said he would love to play until the age of 40 for the Packers, though emphasizing he also wants more "freedom" in his next contract.The pay for quarterbacks has gotten significantly higher since Rodgers signed his last deal nearly five years ago. For example, San Francisco 49ers quarterback has made just seven career starts, and he signed a five-year, $137.5 million extension聽earlier this offseason. It'd be a major shock if the Packers and Rodgers never came to terms on a new contract. When healthy Marquis Haynes Color Rush Jersey , there isn't a quarterback in the NFL on the same level as Rodgers, who has no flaw in his game. He's a two-time MVP and single-handedly carried them to the NFC North division title in 2016, when they fell to 4-6 after 10 games.The Packers were very lucky to land Rodgers in the 2005 draft when Brett Favre was their starter. There's no way they find a true successor to Rodgers, so they may have to give into all of his demands when it comes to discussing the next contract..
