The Green Bay Packers have reportedly taken the final step in locking up all three of their specialists for the foreseeable future.
With punter Tim Masthay and kicker Mason Crosby already extended through 2015, the Packers have signed long-snapper Brett Goode to a three-year extension worth $2.715 million, according to Yahoo! Shutdown Cornerís Brian McIntyre (http://tinyurl.com/93vvzpw)
The 6-foot-1, 255-pound Goode is in his fifth season as the teamís long-snapper and played in the teamís last 71 regular-season games since arriving in Green Bay in 2008 after a training-camp stint in Jacksonville the year before when the Packers lost long-snapper J.J. Jansen to injury.
Goode, who turns 28 next week, was playing in the final year of the two-year, $1.65 million extension he signed in January 2011.
His new contract will pay him salaries of $715,000 (2013), $730,000 (2014) and $870,000 (2015). McIntyre further reports the deal, which was signed Oct. 13, paid Goode a $325,000 signing bonus and includes a $25,000 workout bonus during each year of the deal.
