STATS, LLC PLAYER NEWS

Posted Sept. 08, 2011
Scifres, hampered last season by San Diego's brutal specials teams breakdowns, agreed Wednesday to a five-year contract extension that will keep him with the Chargers through 2016. The deal is worth just under $19 million in new money, with just more than $10 million guaranteed.||||||| Scifres has consistently been one of the NFL's best punters and was a Pro Bowl alternate from 2004-09. While Scifres' gross average was a team-record 46.7 yards last year, he was a victim of the Chargers' poor special teams play. He had four punts blocked and another deflected, helping to drop his net average to 30.8 yards.
Posted Nov. 03, 2005
Scifres has re-signed with the San Diego Chargers, agreeing to a four-year contract extension. The punter, who was a fifth-round pick in the 2003 NFL Draft, is averaging a career-best 45.2 yards on 37 punts this season. He was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2004.|||||||
