Mike Scifres agrees to 5-year extension

The San Diego Chargers have hammered out a five-year, $19 million contract extension with veteran punter Mike Scifres, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. The deal includes $9 million in guaranteed money, a source confirmed.

Scifres ranked third in the NFL last season in punting average. He averaged 46.7 yards per punt in 2010.

Now, he's locked up for the long-term future. Scifres has a 44.5 career average. The former Western Illinois standout was drafted in the fifth round of the 2004 NFL draft and is a former Pro Bowl alternate.
