(610 Sports) – The Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran long snapper James Winchester to a two-year contract extension, his agent, Ken Sarnoff, told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.

Winchester's deal is reportedly for the veteran minimum ($1.35M) for both 2022 and '23, along with a signing bonus, which will make him the highest paid long snapper in the league.

The veteran long snapper entered the league in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, but was ultimately waived that August. Winchester didn't appear on another NFL roster until the Chiefs came calling in 2015. Since signing with Kansas City, Winchester has yet to miss a single game in his six seasons with the team.
