Instant analysis of PK Matt Prater's contract extension

Instant analysis of PK Matt Prater's contract extension”

Two-time Pro Bowler Matt Prater is locked up. Prater, who was set to become a free agent at the end of the season, can earn up to $12.15 million through the duration of the contract.

Prater then signed with the Miami Dolphins in January 2007, but he was cut later that summer in favor of Jay Feely.

Prater, 33, has been with Detroit since 2014 and has been one of the Lions' most consistent players. He began that season with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and was cut by Denver after the team chose to stick with Brandon McManus as his replacement.

Last year, the Lions signed punter Sam Martin to a four-year contract extension just before the start of the season.

Prater has a career field-goal accuracy of 83.1 per cent and an extra-point accuracy of 98.1 per cent, missing only seven extra-point attempts of 370 for his career. He tied an National Football League record earlier this season by making 12 straight field goals of 50 yards or more - a mark he shares with Robbie Gould, Blair Walsh and Justin Tucker. Prater's only misses have come from beyond 50, where he is 4-of-6 on the season with a make from 58 yards.

The Lions, 3-3, sit third in the NFC North and are next in action on Sunday night when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers.
