The team announced the multiyear deal Tuesday, shortly after the NFL's free agency period began. It did not release the terms.
Folk wrote on his Instagram page: ''(hash)4moreyears So excited to be back!''
Folk, coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Folk had said late last season he believed he had earned a potential long-term deal after making 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, including three winning kicks. He also broke the franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20). Folk also had a career-high 30 touchbacks on his kickoffs.
