Well…At Least The Raiders Have A Nasty Kicker

Until the day that Sebastian Janikowski leaves the Raiders, I won’t feel too bad for the Oakland franchise. The reason: they have a sick kicker who can make a 65 yarder or shank a 25 yard chip shot…and that is what I call entertainment (as entertaining as a field goal kicker can be). Throw in some off the field trouble in his past and a new contract that makes him rich, and you have a Token Sports feature:

The Raiders and Sebastian Janikowski reached agreement Tuesday on the richest kicking contract in NFL history. Janikowski receives a four-year, $16 million contract. Included in the deal is $9 million in guaranteed money, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. In 10 seasons, all with the Raiders, Janikowski has scored 1,000 points, converting 78.4 percent of his field goal attempts (229 of 292) and 313 of 316 extra-point attempts. He scored 95 points in 2009.
Janikowski is coming off the best season of his 10-year career. He made 26 of 29 field goals, with his only misses coming from 45, 57 and 66 yards. He made six kicks of at least 50 yards, including a 61-yarder that was the fourth longest in NFL history.
