Wil Lutz Remains A Saint

New Orleans Saints v Atlanta Falcons

As NFL free agency continues, the New Orleans Saints have locked up their kicker for the next five years.

The team announced the long-term deal with Wil Lutz Wednesday, tweeting out a photo of Lutz signing the contract, terms of which were not disclosed.

 

Lutz originally started his NFL career in Baltimore as a undrafted free agent before signing with New Orleans.

He made 28 of 30 field goal attempts and 52 of 53 extra points in 2018, his third year with the Saints. Lutz's 93.3% field-goal accuracy ranked fifth in the NFL last season. He made a club-record 26 consecutive attempts. His streak of 36 games in a row with a field goal, the second-longest string in NFL history, ended when he didn't have an attempt in the final regular-season game.

Lutz ranked third in the league with 64 touchbacks on kickoffs.
