The Facts: The Dolphins are signing Sanders to a five-year, $22 million extension that includes $10 million guaranteed and ties him to the Dolphins through the 2026 season, a source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Diehards Line: As Profootballtalk.com chimed in, Sanders just completed his third season out of New Mexico, making him one of the first members of the 2018 draft class to receive an extension. Miami selected him with the 229th overall pick in the seventh round. Sanders was one of the most accurate kickers in 2020, missing only three of his 39 attempts. He hit 12-of-14 attempts from 40-49 yards and 8-of-9 kicks from at least 50 yards. He nailed all 36 of his extra points and sent 70.3 percent of his kickoffs for touchbacks. Overall, he’s sent 86.5 percent of his field goals and 98 percent of his era points through the uprights. Bottom line: Sanders is one of the league’s top kickers and now will be paid like it.
