Adam Schefter, the ESPN NFL insider who is generally regarded as one of the most reliable NFL reporters around, has let the world know via twitter the big news that you've all been waiting for: Information on one of the Green Bay Packers' unrestricted free agents. Worry about potential kicker woes no more, friends, because it appears that Mason Crosby will be returning to the team, as expected.
K Mason Crosby has agreed to terms with the Packers on a 5-year deal.
This is great news for the team, and it's been expected for quite some time. Personally, I wasn't expecting such a long term deal for Crosby, but I'm very happy about it. Crosby hasn't been the most accurate kicker in the world, but he's a pretty reliable guy - at least middle of the road as far as NFL starting kickers go - and he's got an absolutely monster leg. Welcome back, Mr. Crosby. I anxiously wait the details from the team or from another reporter who's able to dig up serious details on the contract.
