NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the particulars of the deal shortly after the announcement: 5 years, roughly $20 million for the former seventh-round pick, who posted a statement on his Twitter account:
While he's now known to possess one of the more reliable legs in the NFL, Butker's road to this moment at one point wasn't a sure bet.
To date, Butker, 25, has converted 62-of-69 career field goals, including going 24-of-27 in 2018, good enough for the 12th-best completion percentage (88.9) in the league.
Butker has also demonstrated an ability to perform in the clutch on several occasions. Against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, Butker famously nailed his only field goal of the night: a 39-yarder to send the game into overtime.
