Rams Add Two Years to Punter Johnny Hekker’s Deal

The Rams tacked on two additional years to punter Johnny Hekker’s contract Monday, keeping him with the team through the 2022 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports via Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com.

The deal gives Hekker $10 million guaranteed, the most ever for a punter, according to Schefter.

Hekker has been named first-team All-Pro three times in six NFL seasons. Last year, he downed an NFL-record 51 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. Three years earlier, he set a record with a 44.2-yard net average on 78 punts.
