Mason Crosby beat out Giorgio Tavecchio and Zach Ramirez to retain his job as the Green Bay Packers' kicker. Now, Crosby will have to outperform the 2012 version of himself if he's going to get paid this season the way he expected to.
Crosby accepted a restructured contract with the Packers that lowers his 2013 salary from 2.4 million down to 800,000. Crosby's new contract is already official in the NFL database. The final two years of Crosby's contract were not changed, so he's still scheduled to earn 2.65 million in 2014 and 2.8 million in 2015.
There is some discrepancy in various reports, however, as to how Crosby can earn more than his 800,000 base salary. USA Today reported that Crosby would receive an additional 400,000 roster bonus if he's still with Green Bay in Week 6, and that he'd get another 400,000 if on the Packers' roster in Week 12.
So, just because Crosby is returning to Green Bay for a seventh season doesn't mean the Packers' front office doesn't have some hesitation in bringing him back. Crosby had the worst field-goal accuracy rate in the NFL last season, making only 21 of his 33 field-goal attempts (63.6 percent).
