The Saints found a kicker they liked, and they want to keep him.

According to Josh Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Saints have agreed to a five-year contract extension with kicker Wil Lutz.

The 24-year-old Lutz was going to be a restricted free agent, but rather than just tender him for a year, they locked him up long term.

He gave them plenty of reason for confidence last year, hitting 28-of-30 field goals (93.3 percent), the most accurate season in franchise history.

His accuracy has actually improved each of his three seasons there, so it makes sense to hang onto him.
