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.

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.|||||||
