The New York Giants have one of the older statesmen in terms of kickers. And they will have him for at least the next several seasons.

The Giants re-signed kicker Graham Gano to a three-year contract extension on Friday. The team announced this extension hours before their season opener with rivals, the Dallas Cowboys.

One year ago, Gano made 29 of his 32 attempts. He also went 29 of 33 during the 2021 season. Gano made 31 of his 32 attempts during his initial season with the team.

Twenty of his kicks have come from at least 50 yards. This is 11 more than any kicker in team history, according to the team. Last season, he made eight field goals from 50 yards or more.
