Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby signed a four-year deal worth $16.1 million with a $5 million signing bonus.

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 15:44:33 -0800
Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby re-signed to a four-year deal Tuesday, March 1, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Crosby is coming off a disappointing 2015 season, but he is still one of the better kickers in football and was the fourth-highest scoring fantasy kicker two years ago. You can still draft him as your starting kicker for next season.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent PK Mason Crosby's agent has been in regular contact with the team and a deal is expected to be reached without the team using the franchise tag on Crosby.
Fantasy Tip: Crosby has played very well for the Packers over the last several seasons and would be a solid option in fantasy leagues next season since the Packers have a high-scoring offense.
Tue, 16 Feb 2016 09:45:27 -0800
The Green Bay Packers and general manager Ted Thompson are unlikely to use the franchise tag on impending free-agent PK Mason Crosby. Green Bay has only used the tag twice -- in 2008 on DL Corey Williams and in 2010 on DL Ryan Pickett. The Packers should be able to get a deal done with Crosby without the tag.
Mon, 15 Feb 2016 07:46:27 -0800
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent PK Mason Crosby is likely the next priority on the team's to-do list. Crosby has made 85% of his kicks since 2012.

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 11:36:42 -0800
Green Bay Packers impending free-agent PK Mason Crosby is a candidate to receive the franchise tag. Crosby has had three straight solid seasons after a disappointing 2012.
Fantasy Tip: Crosby made 24 of his 28 field goal attempts in 2015 and remains an attractive fantasy booter, especially with the Packers getting Jordy Nelson back in 2016.
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 00:29:25 -0800
Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby has made 5-of-7 attempts from 50 yards and beyond, including two 57-yard field goals this season. Overall, he's converted a career-best 88.2 percent (30-of-34) of his attempts. Earlier this month, Crosby set the NFL record for most points by a player in his first seven seasons, breaking former Indianapolis Colts PK Mike Vanderjagt's mark of 874 points. Crosby now has 887 points. With two games remaining, he is on pace for the third 140-point season of his career. He would join David Akers (2008, 2010-11) and Stephen Gostkowski (2008, 2011-12) as the only players in league history to do so.

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 08:20:10 -0700

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:13:07 -0700
Green Bay Packers PK Mason Crosby is being pushed hard by PK Giorgio Tavecchio in training camp, and the decision on who wins the starting job is expected to come down to the final three preseason games. Crosby has reportedly outperformed Tavecchio on kickoffs in camp, while Tavecchio has made 89.7 percent (35 of 39) field goals, as opposed to 76.9 percent (30 of 39) for Crosby.
Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins the Green Bay kicker job is valuable from a fantasy perspective, as this team can score plenty of points. However, due to the uncertainty, avoid both Crosby and Tavecchio in earlier drafts until a clear-cut winner emerges.
Sun, 04 Aug 2013 08:22:46 -0700
