Cardinals exercised P Andy Lee's 2018 option.

Lee will make $2M this year with the Cardinals. He has bounced around a few teams in his career, spending time with the Panthers, 49ers, and Cardinals. He is one of the best punters and the Cardinals recognize that.
Mar 10 - 10:36 AM

Cardinals signed P Andy Lee.

P Matt Wile was waived in the corresponding roster move. Lee is one of the league's best punters, but was cut loose in a cost-saving measure by the Panthers. He also missed seven games last season with a hamstring issue.

Panthers released P Andy Lee.

Lee, 35, was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2007, 2011, and 2012 with the 49ers. The Panthers had been trying to trade him. The move saves Carolina $1.9 million. Michael Palardy has tentatively won the punting job.

Panthers P Andy Lee has agreed to a contract restructure.

His $3.43 million salary for 2017 has been reduced to $1 million, while his $4.13 million salary in 2018 dropped to $1.1 million. Lee is getting some of the money back with bonuses but is still taking a slight pay cut. The restructure saves Carolina $800,000 in cap space this season and almost $2 million in 2018.

Panthers placed P Andy Lee (hamstring) on injured reserve.

They will apparently move forward with Michael Palardy at punter. The Panthers acquired Lee from the Browns for a fourth-round pick in 2018 before the season. Lee was traded from San Francisco to Cleveland the previous year.

Panthers acquired P Andy Lee and a seventh-round draft pick from the Browns in exchange for P Kasey Redfern and a fourth-round pick in 2018.

The Panthers needed a punter, and the rebuilding Browns have been stocking up on draft picks since Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta took over. Lee, 34, was acquired via trade by the old Ray Farmer regime for a 2017 seventh-round pick. The Brown-DePodesta regime gets a draft-pick upgrade and will move forward with a cheaper punter. Lee is owed a $2.83 million base salary this season.

Browns acquired P Andy Lee from the 49ers in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2017 draft.

Lee is a three-time All-Pro, has been one of the best punters in the league for the last decade, and carries a reasonable $2.05 base salary for 2015. None of that was enough to save his spot on the 49ers' roster after San Francisco burned a 2015 fifth-round pick on P Bradley Pinion. With Lee now in town, the Browns should move on from Spencer Lanning. Understandably, Cleveland's trade for a punter suggests it has little faith in its 2015 offense.

49ers P Andy Lee's six-year extension is worth $20.5 million, with $7.1 million paid out in the first two years.

Tacked onto the $1.1 million left on Lee's old contract, it's actually worth just $3.09 million annually -- significantly less than originally expected and nearly a full $1 million per year lower than Shane Lechler's Raiders deal. Lee essentially took a hometown discount. He's now signed through his age-36 season.

49ers agreed to a six-year contract extension with P Andy Lee.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco expects the deal to be in the range of $4 million annually, which is unheard for any punter not named Shane Lechler. To Lee's credit, he's in Lechler's class, and a major reason why the 49ers boasted one of the strongest special teams units of the past decade in 2011. Pro Football Focus rated Lee as the second-best punter in the NFL last season, just ahead of Lechler.

49ers P Andy Lee is reportedly in search of a new contract.

Lee was sensational in 2007, but his directional punting was an issue last year and he has little leverage. He's due a $1 million base salary in 2009.
Sun, Feb 22, 2009 11:01:00 PM

49ers punter Andy Lee may have had the best season by a punter in NFL history in 2007.

Lee's net average of 41 would have been a NFL record if not for Shane Lechler's average of 41.1 this season, but Lee did break the NFL record with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line.

49ers matched the Steelers' six-year offer sheet for P Andy Lee.

Lee becomes one of the NFL's higher-paid punters with a $7.1 million deal that includes a $1.66 million signing bonus. The Steelers may now look to free agent Matt Turk as a replacement for Chris Gardocki.
Thu, Mar 8, 2007 01:32:00 PM

The 49ers have reportedly decided to match the offer sheet punter Andy Lee signed with the Steelers.

The six-year offer is worth $7.1 million, according to the Pittsburgh Press-Gazette. It includes a $1.66 million signing bonus. Lee is considered an up-and-coming punter in the league. Matt Turk remains available.

Steelers signed restricted free agent P Andy Lee to an offer sheet.

The Steelers are on the free agency board! And we have our first restricted free agent offer sheet! Oh, it's a punter. The Steelers would give up a sixth-rounder if the 49ers decide not to match. Move along, nothing to see here.
