The deal includes a $5 million signing bonus. The Packers passed on the franchise tag because they were close to a deal. Going on 32, Crosby has been the Packers' kicker since 2007. Aside from a horrendous 2012, Crosby has been one of the best kickers in the league over the past five seasons. Crosby has drained 85.7 percent of his field goals over the past three years. He's a nice weapon to have in Green Bay, where the weather can wreak havoc. Mar 1 - 6:43 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein reports it is unlikely the Packers assign the franchise tag to impending free agent K Mason Crosby.

Teams routinely use the franchise tag on top kickers, but it does not appear the Packers plan to go that route with Crosby. The decision either means the two sides or close to a deal or the Packers are willing to let Crosby test his value on the open market. Crosby has made 85.7 percent of his field goal attempts over the last three seasons and was perfect from the new extra point distance last year. He has been with the Packers since 2007.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes a new contract for impending free agent K Mason Crosby is next on Green Bay's to-do list.

The Packers have extended Mike Daniels and Letroy Guion, and Demovsky believes Crosby could be next. Demovsky reports a deal is not "imminent," but he expects negotiations to start at the Combine next week. Crosby owns a career 80-percent conversion rate and was 36-of-36 on extra points last season.

Packers K Mason Crosby is not facing offseason competition.

Crosby is coming off a 33-of-37 season, putting the yips of 2012 behind him. He'll be a fine fantasy kicking option as Aaron Rodgers' healthy return will yield plenty of scoring opportunities.

Packers K Mason Crosby converted a career-high 89.2 percent of his field goals in the 2013 regular season.

Crosby knocked home 33-of-37 attempts. That's a significant improvement from his dismal 2012 campaign where he went 21-of-33. Still, Crosby's conversion rate ranked him as just the No. 13 most-accurate kicker last season. Matt Prater led all kickers in accuracy, converting 96.2 percent of his attempts.

Mason Crosby missed two field goals in Sunday's Week 10 loss to the Eagles.

Crosby came into Sunday's game 19-of-21 on the year, but struggled with the wind at Lambeau as he missed from 53 and 42 yards out. It's unlikely he's regressed to 2012 form, but fantasy owners should be seeking more stable offenses when looking for a kicker this week. Crosby can be scooped back up once Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) returns.

Mason Crosby made 13-of-15 field goals in October, earning NFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors.

It's been a remarkable turnaround for Crosby, who contracted a case of the yips last year and went 21-of-33 on field goals. This season, he's 17-of-19 and made three field goals from 50+ already. Crosby is a weekly top-five kicking option for fantasy owners.

Packers K Mason Crosby is 9-of-9 on field goals so far this season.

A year after going an embarrassing 21-of-33 (63.6 percent) and being forced into a pay-cut, Crosby has his groove back. "I think he is much more rhythmic at this point," Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum said. "It allows him to be in balance when he strikes the ball." Now that Crosby is kicking with confidence and the Packers are moving the chains with ease once again, he's back as a weekly K1 option.

Packers K Mason Crosby has agreed to a contract restructure.

Crosby was scheduled to earn a $2.4 million base salary this season. But after going a brutal 21-of-33 (58.8 percent) last year and continuing to struggle through camp, he's now an incentive-based player. He'll get a $800K salary and can make up the $1.6 million through roster bonuses and performance goals. Crosby is on track to be the Packers' kicker in Week 1, but fantasy owners should seek out someone with more confidence right now.

Mason Crosby made just 3-of-8 field goal attempts at Saturday's "Family Night."

"He definitely didn't take a step in the right direction with his performance," coach Mike McCarthy said. "That's what Family Night's for. He'll be evaluated. He's definitely got to do better than that because that's not going to cut it." Crosby made just 63.6 percent of his field goals last season, the worst rate in the league, and he's competing with Gio Tavecchio for the job in Green Bay. So far through camp, Crosby is 12-of-19 while Tavecchio is 16-of-19.

Packers special teams coach Shawn Slocum said K Mason Crosby has "worked through" his technical issues.

Crosby made just 63.6 percent of his field goals last season, the worst rate in the league. "I thought he started to improve at the end of the season. He's had a good offseason to this point," Slocum said. "We want to get to the production we had at the end of 2010 through 2011." Crosby will be the favorite heading into a camp battle with Giorgio Tavecchio.
Tue, May 28, 2013 08:21:00 AM

The Press-Gazette expects Mason Crosby to face real competition from Giorgio Tavecchio this offseason.

Tavecchio wasn't brought in to be an ornament. Crosby connected on just 21-of-33 field goals last season and his 63.6 percent conversion rate ranked dead last among all qualifiers. It's a position battle for fantasy owners to watch as the Packers' elite offense yields plenty of opportunities.
Thu, May 16, 2013 11:59:00 AM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects K Mason Crosby to face competition this offseason.

Over the last five years, Crosby has never had to deal with another kicker on the Packers' roster. But during one 10-game stretch last season, he missed 12-of-24 field goals. Green Bay is trying out former D-III kicker Michael Bernard on Monday.
Thu, Mar 7, 2013 12:09:00 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy gave struggling K Mason Crosby another vote of confidence following Sunday's win over the Bears.

Crosby went 0-for-2 Sunday and is now a pathetic 17-of-29 (58.6 percent) on the season. He's been given two votes of confidence in the last four weeks. "We're not changing our kicker, so you can write that down right now," McCarthy said. "He's our guy." Fantasy owners should have moved on a while ago.
