New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen recently said contract talks would not take place during the regular season but he said nothing about getting a deal done prior to kickoff on Sunday night.

On Friday evening, with additional salary cap space still needed, the Giants signed kicker Graham Gano to a three-year contract extension.

The extension is reportedly worth $16.5 million over the three years with roughly $11.3 million guaranteed.

The 36-year-old Gano is entering his 14th NFL season and his fourth with the Giants.

From the Giants:

In his first three years with the team, Gano made 89 of 97 field goal attempts (91.8%), including 20 of 25 (80.0%) from 50+ yards, with a long of 57 yards. His 91.8% success rate is the highest in Giants history among kickers with at least 50 attempts. The previous mark of 91.7% was established by Josh Brown from 2013-16.

Gano has the franchise’s second and sixth-highest single-season field goal percentages with 96.9 (31 of 32) in 2020 and 90.6 (29 of 32) in 2022.

His 20 field goals of 50 or more yards are more than twice as many as any other kicker in Giants history. Joe Danelo is second with nine. Gano holds the Giants’ three highest single-season long field goal totals with eight in 2022, seven in 2021 and five in 2020.

Gano has been one of the NFL’s most reliable kickers since joining the Giants in 2020.
