The Buffalo Bills have signed long snapper Reid Ferguson to a three-year contract extension, the team announced on Friday.

Ferguson had one year-remaining on his current deal and is now tied to the Bills for another four seasons.

Ferguson's salary cap number for this season is scheduled to be $1.14 million, good for seventh-highest amongst all NFL long snappers. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed, and it's unknown if that number will change under the extension.

Ferguson is the second longest-tenured Bills player, joining the team in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of LSU, behind only defensive end Jerry Hughes, who was came to Buffalo via a trade from the Indianapolis Colts in 2013. They are the only two players on the team's roster who pre-date Sean McDermott's arrival in 2017.

Ferguson has been named a Bills captain each of the last two seasons.

The 27-year-old spent his first season on the Bills' practice squad before earning the team's starting long snapper's job in 2017. Since then, he's been as good and consistent as anyone could ask for.

Since taking over the job in 2017, The Bills have attempted 549 punts, field goals, and extra points combined. Ferguson has snapped on every single one of them without a hitch. Zero errant snaps in 549 attempts, including 134 of them last season.

Reid's brother, Blake, is the long snapper for the Miami Dolphins.
