The Patriots reached a contract extension with kicker Stephen Gostkowski, putting the reliable kicker just behind the Raiders’ Sebastian Janikowski in average salary. Gostkowski signed a four-year extension to the restricted free agent tender he signed earlier this offseason. Gostkowski’s average salary will be about $3.5 million per year, just behind Janikowski’s $4 mill/year. Gostkowski has done a fantastic job taking over for the legendary Adam Vinatieri when Vinatieri left for the Colts in free agency. Gostkowski was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2008, has set the Pats’ single season record for field goals made (36), and owns the best accuracy rating for Patriots kickers (85.1%).
