The Las Vegas Raiders are keeping Daniel Carlson around for the foreseeable future. On Wednesday, the team agreed to a four-year extension with the placekicker that’ll keep him in Las Vegas through the 2025 season, his agent Mike McCartney announced. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the deal is worth $18.4 million with $10.2 million guaranteed and includes a $4 million signing bonus, which makes him the league’s third-highest paid kicker. 

Carlson — who was playing on a second-round restricted free agent tender this season — has been with the Raiders dating to the 2018 season and has blossomed into one of the better kickers in the league. Following Week 13, Carlson is second among all kickers in field goals made (27) and field goal attempts (30). For his Raiders career, the 26-year-old has netted 85.7% of his field goals and 95.5% of his extra points. He’s also 9 of 10 on 50-plus yard field goal attempts dating to last season.
