BRAD WING SIGNS CONTRACT EXTENSION WITH GIANTS…
The New York Giants have announced that they have extended the contract of punter Brad Wing, who was set to become a restricted free agent during the 2017 offseason. The NFL Network reports that Wing signed a 3-year, $6.45 million contract that includes $3.725 million in guaranteed money – $2 million of which is in the form of a signing bonus.

The Giants acquired Brad Wing from the Pittsburgh Steelers by trade for a conditional 7th-round draft pick in September 2015, replacing the popular-but-declining Steve Weatherford. Wing responded with a strong season, averaging 44.5 yards per punt (38.9 net). He had 33 kicks downed inside the 20-yard line, tying a team single-season record. An Australian, the left-footed Wing was originally signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles after the 2013 NFL Draft. He did not make the team but he made the Steelers roster in 2014. Wing combines a strong leg with good directional placement skills. He also holds for both field goals and place kicks.
