The New York Giants have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with long snapper Zak DeOssie, which will pay the specialist $3.45 million over the duration of the extension. $900,000 of that money is guaranteed.
Without the extension, DeOssie, 28, would have become an unrestricted free agent following the 2012 season. The former linebacker decided to focus solely on long snapping in 2010 and has been a reliable snapper for the duration of his time in New York.
New York also rewarded punter Steve Weatherford this offseason, giving him a five-year, $12.5 million deal. Kicker Lawrence Tynes could become a free agent after this season. According to the Newark Star-Ledger, there are "no indications" that Tynes and the Giants are close to a deal.
