Fresh off another perfect game, kicker Daniel Carlson has agreed to a 4-year extension with the Raiders according to his agent.

Adam Schefter put out the numbers on the deal.

The former Vikings’ fifth round pick was signed during the 2018 season after the Vikings cut him following a game in which he missed three field goals and the game ended in a tie with the the rival Packers.

Carlson has signed several one-year deals with the Raiders. He’s in the midst of his best season with the team, making a career-high five field goals from outside 50 yards. He has made 9 of 10 attempts from outside 50 yards the past two seasons while converting 92.4% of his attempts.

The fourth-year pro has played on one-year contracts his entire career which means he was set to hit free agency this offseason if he wasn’t re-signed. The Raiders finally felt comfortable enough in his abilities to lock him up long term. He’s earned their trust with his performance the past two seasons.
