Rams signed P Johnny Hekker to a six-year, $18 million extension through 2020.
There was really no reason for this high-dollar extension with Hekker slated for restricted free agency in 2015. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the $9 million guarantee is the most in league history for a punter or kicker. Hekker is an excellent punter, but this is a Raidersian move. The Rams are 5-7.

The Rams gave undrafted rookie P Johnny Hekker a $10,000 signing bonus -- tied for the most among St. Louis' UDFA signings.

Hekker is a big, long punter at 6-foot-5, 223, and the Rams believe he can solidify the position for the long term. "His really good balls are pretty close to (Shane) Lechler's good balls," special teams coach John Fassel said. Hekker is the favorite over Tom Malone to open the season as the Rams' punter.
